Editor's Notes

February 28, 2019:

Both Honda models featured here are touted by many a user for durability and high power, and while the 4-in-1 costs a pretty penny, it very well may be the only mower you’ll ever need. Both of these choices, along with the Troy-Bilt on our list are self-propelled. While this adds to the price significantly, many people highly prefer their ease of use. We were sure to add some alternatives to gas-powered selections, like the electric GreenWorks 16-Inch and the eco-friendly, battery-operated Sun Joe 16-Inch, VonHaus 40V, and Ego LM2101. (Just know that you won’t necessarily see the same kind of power with these choices, but they’re well suited for smaller lawns, nevertheless.) If you prefer American-made, look to the Troy-Bilt or Husqvarna models on our list.
