4 reasons not to buy

    • “with the expectation it won’t last forever but should probably get at least a year out of it”

    • “their machine broke within four months of using it”

    • “but it only lasted for less than a year.”

    • “The lever is plastic, so I imagine it will break at some point and be impossible to replace”

    • “but some of the plastic parts break easily.”

    • “Something came loose inside the drive unit.”

    • “This mower is NOT that robust. I would think grass it about all you can expect, and then only for a few years at best.”

  • Handling the power cord can be cumbersome and takes some time to get used to, as it is similar to vacuuming. (22 reviews)

    • “The cord will take a little getting used to, I’ve mowed grass since I was a young teenager (30+ yrs), this is like a combo of vacuuming & mowing grass, by no means difficult just different.”

    • “Oh, I do have to keep moving the cord out of the way, but after getting all those don’ts, what’s one do?”

    • “Sure the cord is cumbersome, but once you get used to it, it’s just as annoying as mowing the lawn anyway.”

    • “Putting the on/off lever on the right side, the same side as the cord, means that whenever you need to adjust the extension cord you have to change hands on the lever so that your right hand is free to move the cord”

    • “There is the hassle of whipping that cord around to keep it out of the way so you don’t mow across it.”

    • “Which is good because you need the other hand to manage the power cord.”

    • “Love that it’s light as a vacuum cleaner and can be used with one hand while I hold the cord with the other.”

    • “Of course the use of a cord is a little cumbersome, dragging it behind you through your yard.”

  • The mower is not self-propelled, which may be a drawback for some users, although its lightweight nature partially compensates for this. (11 reviews)

    • “Easy to maneuver & push, despite not being self-propelled, because it’s so light.”

    • “No assisted push but light enough for just about anybody to operate.”

    • “Very light. I can lift it with one arm and cart it thru my house if I want.”

    • “This mower, the LawnMaster ME1218X Electric Lawn Mower 12AMP 19-Inch, is light as a feather and can truly be operated with one hand.”

    • “It is so light i cut with one hand on mower one hand on cord.”

    • “I was looking for another self-propelled mower, which this is not”

    • “Our gas-powered lawn mower is heavy, so it had a drive motor and throttle. This electric mower is very light, so a drive motor is not necessary.”

    • “Nice and light, easy cutting-height adjustment.”

  • The motor can rev down if the handle is not held down firmly, which may cause hand fatigue or cramping over extended use. (5 reviews)

    • “The trigger need to be held down firmly. You can actually hear the motor rev down as your hand eases. After awhile my hand did start to cramp up.”

    • “One complaint I have about this model is the hand lever that must be held down to keep the motor running, it has to be held with your right hand, or your left if you cross over your torso to grab it in a ninja-like motion while you let go of the lever with your right hand all while making sure the cord stays clear of the blade….a full width lever across the entire handle would be a much-appreciated upgrade.”

    • “Having a lever for on/off instead of a metal bar attached to both sides of the handle (like most mowers) also means that you have to keep it squeezed tight with one hand the whole time, or it shuts off”

    • “after about 0.5 an acre my right hand was on fire from holding the trigger to keep it turned on.”

    • “Turns on and off when you grip lever.”

Bottom Line

The LawnMaster CLMF4819X is a lightweight, easy-to-handle mower that cuts through overgrown grass with ease. It's a 'plug n play' model that's simple to set up in about 15 minutes—no gas or oil hassle. You can adjust the height with one lever, making it versatile for different yards. It also folds up for compact storage. However, there are concerns about its longevity and handling the power cord. Not self-propelled, the motor may slow if you don't grip the handle firmly.
