A small machine, the Sun Joe iON16LM is very agile and an excellent choice if you have a small lawn. It derives its name from its use of a Lithium-ion battery which is light in weight. Although it is not chock full of features (and lacks some standard features) like the Greenworks and EGO, it is still an efficient cordless electric lawnmower. Here is what the Sun Joe iON16LM brings to the table;

Features

This is essentially a push mower and has a plastic 16-inch deck which makes it small and lightweight. The motor is started by an electric start function which delivers 40V of power to cut grass. At this power, the maximum cutting time provided is 45 minutes. A grass bag is included for discharge, and that’s just about it. The lawnmower does not have a mulch kit or side discharge capabilities. The cutting height is adjustable from 1.5 to 3.5 inches. All in all, the mower weighs in at 33lb making it one of the lightest electric mowers in the market. A warranty of 2 years for the lawnmower is guaranteed after purchase.

Pros

  • Light in weight

The lawnmower weighs only 33 lbs. and is only challenged by robot mowers which tend to be smaller. For a push mower, this weight means less effort is used to complete the chore. It can even be pushed uphill because of its light weight.

  • Built ergonomically

The handle is of high quality, a rarity among lawnmowers. The contoured handle makes it easy to grip and more comfortable to use.

  • Brushless motor

Another exciting feature; the lawnmower adjusts power output according to the grass thickness. This means that the lawnmower will not be operating at maximum output at all times making the engine last longer. This makes the battery last longer and keeps noise levels at a low.

  • All terrain treads

The rear wheels have heavy treading to be able to move on all types of terrain. This feature coupled with the light weight make it an extremely agile and maneuverable lawnmower.

Cons

Low battery life comes up when talking about the demerits of this lawnmower. This limits its use to only small or medium lawns whereby it would be tiresome to use on a large lawn. It also has significant trouble cutting tall grasses because it is not powerful enough. You have to make at least two swathes to cut taller grass. This is further hindered by its small cutting width. A 16 inches wide cutting deck is too small and explains why it is the best to use on a small lawn.

Final thoughts

The Sun Joe iON16LM is a small but compact electric mower. The light Lithium-ion battery and plastic deck make it very light hence easy to maneuver. It is a great option and perhaps one of the best small lawns mowing machines. If you have a larger lawn or take too long to mow such that the grass grows very tall, then you might need to choose another lawnmower. However, the iON16LM can give you good service for many years. Storage is easy because of its compactness although you have to store it with the battery still attached. A cold Lithium-ion battery can be a nuisance.
