1. Goplus Grass Bag Folding Handle Push Lawn Mower
First off, since it is electric, so no pull cord to frustrate you! Just switch the button on and Voila! You are ready to go.
With its surprisingly light weight, Goplus 14-inches 12-Amp Lawn mowercan be easily carried around. Due to its light weight, many old people, as old as over 80, have reported of running it on their own with comfort and ease.
Coming with three-point adjustable heights ranging between 1 to 2.2 inches, it is perfect for cutting any type of grass.Also, its ergonomically designed handle ensures optimal and natural grip.
With its big collection box with the capacity to store 30L grass clippings, you don’t need to dispose the debris off again and again. Moreover, this hard-top grass catcher is easily detachable to make disposal easy.
Moreover, foldable handles make sure it doesn’t bite much room in your tool shed.
It is highly recommendable to those homeowners who are renting somewhere temporarily and have a lawn to mow, and don’t really want to invest much on this tool.
It may, at times, misbehave if you keep it running without breaks as this slow guy sails smoothly, only if you run it at its own pace and let it take rest when it starts huffing and puffing.
I must conclude by saying that it goes fine with the elderly people who run out of breath after a while and need break. However, it must not make you think that it is flawed or something. It is just built with limited stamina and gives you optimal performance if you pace with its pace.
2. Goplus Lawn Mower, Grass Cutting Machine
Out of its manifold features, the worth mentioning is what Goplus calls ‘Safe Dual Switch’. Its function is to prevent accidental starts, either by the operator himself or by a child if he happens to tryhis hands on it, out of curiosity, as with its sloppy façade it looks more like some sports car from Fisher Price.
So, how does thisSafe Dual Switch work?
In an extremely simple but wise way. Once you plug it in, it will start only when you press the button and pull the handle simultaneously. Smart solution to keep you safe!
Quite like its aforementioned counterpart, Goplus 14-inch Corded Grass Cutting Machine also comes with 3-point height adjustments ranging from 0.8 to 2 inches height. This can be very easily adjusted manually to give a perfect cut to your lawn, much to the envy of your folks.
Keeping with its reputation, Goplus has attached a sharp blade to its deck which munches at soft or thin, long or short grass with equal ease and renders it longevity too,as much of a mower’s life span is determined by the quality of its blade.
Not to forget is its large bag catcher which keeps picking each blade and clipping as a dedicated gleaner, leaving a pristine clean lawn behind. It is big enough to hold 25L of grass snippets in it before you get to dispose it off.
Although this capacity is less by 5L as compared to the previous model, it can suffice the needs of a small or medium sized lawn where you will have to empty it forno more than two times in one mowing session.
In sum, ergonomically constructed handle, 3 point adjustable heights, quality blades and flexible wheels together with 1200w sturdy motor-all team up to give you a highly efficient, fairly priced, corded electric lawnmower.
3. Goplus Scarifier, Lawn Dethatcher w/ 40L Collection Bag

By scarifying, it cuts the matted layers of grass on your lawn which speeds up the grass growthand makes your grass growlush green and healthy while dethatching ensures maximum break up and pick up of the built-up layer of thatch from your lawn.
Let me tell you here that thatch could be the dead layer of any vegetation-grass, roots, weeds or runner- it is said to be a nourisher for grass to a certain degree, however, as soon as it gets thicker, it poses a serious threat to lawn and needs to be picked up with a powerful dethatcher and Goplus does this job the best.

Its supreme quality motor and 14 inches wide rake means it can get the job done in a few passes.
In sum, it is a wonderful tool for those who are committed to remake their abandoned garden and ensure aeration in it to improve the quality and density of grass.
Things to Consider before Buying Goplus Corded Electric Lawn Mower
The fact that one specific variant of a corded electric mower is reviewed the best on many buying sites for its specifications, alone is not enough to makethe same variant best for you. As much of this ‘best’ depends on multiple individual factors, your lawn type, your lawn topography, desired grass height and your budget, for instance. Therefore, in order to make a wise purchase of a corded electric Goplus lawn mower, you must bring the following factors into consideration.
- Deck Width and Blade Size
One of the important factors to consider while choosing from the list of Goplus corded electric lawn mowers’ is width of its deck. It is so, because this part actually determines the number of passes you will have to have while mowing your lawn. Attached with the deck is mower’s blade. The wider the blade, the less the passes. Consequently, your mowing job also becomes less taxing and quick.
Also make sure that the blades are razor-sharp and strongly implanted to the unit as this is what does the core job of mowing.
However, you will also have to consider your stamina as an operator to run the machine. What if you make for the widest available deck on Goplus Show room and later are not able to move it easily, as more force is required to move heavier and wider deck. It will ultimately translate into more time and more electricity consumption.
Bearing this in mind, you are advised to choose somewhere between the widest and smallest widths as, I believe, it will be operated with ease and the job will also be done in a few passes.
- Cutting Height
Since the range and number of points to which grass height may be cut are narrowly different in different corded electric mowers by Goplus, you should choose the one with maximum number of cutting height adjustments provided your budget allows you to.
The reason being preferences vary person to person. Not everyone likes golf course look of lawn. A few may like tall grass to walk in the morning.
Experts too recommend totrim grass to less than 30 % of its current over all height.If cut more, it can weaken your grass and ultimately let it wither.
- Cord Size
Equally important is the size of cord as in corded electric lawn mowers this is the only power source for your mower.
If you have narrowed your choice down to, say, three lawnmowers, I would advise you to choose the one with powerful, thick and long electric cord as the thin cords covered with low quality plastic put you at risk while you are mowing.
It can be bare after being run over (which doeshappen, no matter how carefully you mow) for a few times and puts you at risk to catch electric shock.
For small and medium sized lawn, 50 to 100 feet cord is recommended with a 12-14gauge thickness.
- Expelling Options
Know what you want to do with the debris and choose your Goplus mower accordingly.
The company offers all the three options-mulching, bagging, side discharging from the available chute. It is emphatically advised to choose the one with three in one functionality.
If bagging seems to be unimportant to you as you believe in providing juicy nutrients to your grass, choose the one which mulches alone so that you don’t have to skip an extra step every time you mow.
If you want to collect grass clippings diligently into grass bag to dispose it later, choose bagging mower with a spacious bag, so that you don’t have to stop mowing operations again and again.
- Safety Controls
Goplus corded lawn mowers offer certain safety measures such as Auto shut off and safety bars and child locks. Better choose the one with maximum safety measures. Never compromise on safety if you have children or pets at home.
The engine that runs between 3000 and 3500 RPM and has a heavy-duty ampere (16-13 ampere) for maximized performance is highly recommendable.
