The Earthwise 50214 from the American lawnmower company is very small, only a 14 inch cutter, so suitable for small gardens but very easy to maneuver around obstacles it is very lightweight at only 36 pounds . It is not supplied with a cable, so that would be your first purchase. The manufacturer recommends a minimum gauge of #12 and max length of 100 ft. The construction is a light poly plastic for the main deck.
It is very easy to roll over any sort of terrain, it has 5.5 inch wheel front and 6.5 inch rear wheels. Grass cutting depth is easily changed with the single lever, adjustable in steps from 1.5 to 4 inches. The 8 amp motor makes a good job of mulching or side discharging the cuttings ( set by a plate in the side shown below ) with the cutter spinning at 3700rpm
The guarantee period for defects parts and labor is 2 years, as always…read the terms carefully!

Many existing customers sent in great reviews, the power of the machine is excellent, cutting long grass well. There were a couple of recurring faults with loose screws and wheel securing, but Earthwise reportedly have acknowledged that and taken steps to change some components in production. One other worrying story reported really poor blade alignment inside the deck, I could not believe that the machine was not returned for such a serious fault.
Overall a competent mower unit, powerful motor, good construction and features, price is reasonable but factor in the cable and lack of a cuttings collecting bag. Review rating 5/10
