Two New DEWALT Electric Mowers Redesign Power & Performance

DeWALT electric mowers

DEWALT launched two new electric mowers this spring, one 20V and one 60V, with each DEWALT electric mower available in both push and self-propelled models. These mowers are part of DEWALT’s next generation of cordless mowers. These walk-behind DEWALT electric mowers are designed for homeowners and professionals alike. They provide exceptional power and reliably great performance, even on the most difficult lawns.

We were lucky enough to test these mowers out. So let’s take a deep look at the innovation inside these DEWALT electric mowers.

What’s New with DEWALT Electric Mowers?

DEWALT has highlighted four main improvements they’ve made with this generation of mowers. There are a few differences between the DEWALT 2X20V MAX* XR® Mower and the DEWALT 60V MAX*, but here are the common features.

Reimagined Cutting System

A 21 in. high-efficiency deck with a Direct Drive brushless autosensing motor was custom engineered for DEWALT batteries. Users will experience a better cutting performance than 163cc gas mowers.

Pro-Performance Runtime

DEWALT optimized all four mowers to have more runtime than previous models. The DEWALT 20V mowers can provide up to 100 minutes of runtime, and DEWALT FLEXVOLT mower provided 75-100 minutes of runtime on a single charge of two DEWALT 60V MAX* DCB612 4.0Ah batteries.

*[DEWALT’s conditions for runtime tests on each mower: “mowing one third of grass height, on height setting 6, using (2) DEWALT 60V MAX* DCB612 4.0aH batteries”.]

One-Touch Folding Storage

The press of a button activates the telescopic handles and allows the mower to fold to less than a fifth of its size when in operation.

85% Quieter

These new DEWALT electric mowers are 85% quieter than comparable gas mowers.

TIA DEWALT Electric Mower Review

Dan and I were lucky enough to try out these DEWALT electric mowers to help you decide if it’s worth upgrading or switching OPE brands. Here’s a rundown of what we liked.


DeWALT electric mowers performance

We’ve had a lot of rain in Chicagoland, which means tall, thick grass that is thriving. The DEWALT electric mower cut right through, leaving no grass blades behind. So no annoying patches that required a second pass.

Run Time

Like I said, we’ve had a lot of rain so we’ve had a lot of opportunities to try the DEWALT electric mowers. Each time we were impressed by the run time. It’s not even that the mowers can complete the job without recharging, it’s that they can still complete the job on a single charge while also powering through dense, tall grass that typically drains batteries faster.

Quality Construction with Quality Materials

This DEWALT electric mower is priced fairly well with competitors while providing top-tier performance. It’s common for manufacturers to drive the price down with cheaper materials to make a product more competitive, but not DEWALT.

These DEWALT mowers live up to the same “built tough” reputation as any other DEWALT product.

Mulching & Bagging

Brands don’t always put a lot of thought into the quality or operation of their mulchers and baggers because they are standard pieces of equipment at this point. However, the attachments were easy to use, and the mower and the attachments worked well together. Each mower powered through the lawns and left nothing behind.

DEWALT Electric Mowers Value

These DEWALT electric mowers price right on par with comparable electric push and self-propelled mowers, such as EGO and TORO. These competitors also offer great performance. So what sets DEWALT above the rest?

One of the biggest value advantages of DEWALT outdoor power equipment (OPE) is that the batteries are compatible with DEWALT’s full line-up of 20V and 60V MAX* power tools, and vice versa. This is a great thing to consider if you are looking for a battery platform, but also great if you already have DEWALT 20V or 60V MAX* batteries. You’re already saving money because you can choose a cheaper kit option, and it helps you decide which mower to choose based on what batteries you already own.

Final Thoughts

DEWALT is constantly redesigning and upgrading its products to keep ahead of the competition and give consumers more. These new DEWALT electric mowers are a great example of that.

These mowers have the power, performance, and runtime to mow the average lawn on a single charge. Then the reimagined cutting system allows you to take on more demanding mows, whether that’s tough grass or an extra long “just back from vacation” lawn.

DEWALT OPE just keeps getting better and better. I can’t wait to use my DEWALT electric mower all summer long, and I’ll keep looking forward to what DEWALT puts out next.
