At first glance, the difference in price point between the Greenworks cordless 16-inch mower and this 18-inch Makita model seems confusing. However, the Makita has a brushless motor, which means it operates using magnets for a frictionless performance. Power up the machine at 3300 RPM to speed through your chores, or turn it down to 2500 RPM to minimize noise. Cut up to 7300 square feet without recharging the batteries and catch your grass clippings in the mower’s bag, or insert the mulching plug to send them back into your lawn. You can adjust the cutting height between 13/16 of an inch and about 3 inches with a single lever.
