    Must have right extension cord. Unfair reviews, June 18, 2012

    I have had my Moe Joe over a year now and it is still going strong despite being left out in the weather and otherwise abused. The Mow Joe is a good product but it is being sabotaged by Amazon and unfairly reviewed for two reasons:

    1. The Mow Joe 14″ has a 12 amp motor. Amazon is bundling it with a 16 gauge extension cord, despite the fact the manual states that for extension cord lengths under 100ft, a 14 gauge cord is required. For lengths of 100ft or more a 12 gauge cord is required (gauges work backward so a smaller gauge is a thicker wire). Trying to pull 12 amps of power through a little 16 gauge 100ft cord will burn out any electric motor pretty quick. That is why all these reviews complaining about the motor dying after a few weeks bother me. Either through ignorance or cheapness people use an under rated extension cord and blame it on the mower. Amazon could help by not recommending a cord that will destroy the motor.

    2. Electric mowers by nature are maintenance mowers. It is assumed that you will be cutting your grass regularly before it gets so tall you are losing small children in it. If your grass in knee high then borrow your neighbors gas mower and get it to a manageable height and then keep it maintained with your nice quiet, lightweight, electric mower. Even the powerful 12 amp motor on this mower will have big problems with out of control grass, including blade stalling and premature motor failure.

    In short the Mow Joe 14″ is a great mower if you use it how it’s designed to be used and don’t abuse it.

    I have been using and recommend this extension cord:

    My yard is where mowers come to die., May 4, 2016

    RiDE (The Woods, Pacific Northwest) –

    This review is from: Sun Joe MJ401E Mow Joe 14-Inch 12 Amp Electric Lawn Mower With Grass Bag (Lawn & Patio)
    I hate yardwork, and I hate my lawn – if I had my way, I’d just pour concrete over all of my grass and be done with it. My backyard is large enough to ALMOST merit a riding mower, slightly sloped (maybe 25 degrees at the extreme) and lumpy (I have no idea) with strange drainage issues that result in some patches of the lawn growing 4 FEET HIGH around its brethren, like some kind of tyrannical grass dictator (welcome to spring in the Pacific Northwest). This year, I put off mowing for so long my backyard basically turned into a meadow. My small dogs were disappearing into it, and it’s entirely possible there are still neighborhood children in it, waiting for rescue.

    So right out of the box, this mower feels like a toy. I laughed when I opened it because it just seemed so…flimsy. It looks like something Fisher-Price would put out. It was easy to assemble – just the handle and attaching the tiny grass bag (which I took off 10 minutes into mowing). I wheeled it around the living room a little – it’s light, fairly easy to turn and is so narrow I can actually just push it through my house and out my back door to start mowing (which is nice, because now I don’t have to open my garage, go around to the back gate, unlock it, get the mower, come back around, mow and then do it all in reverse when I’m done).

    Imagine my immense surprise (and delight) when my husband shrugged, carried it outside, started it up and the mower immediately started chewing on the grass, spitting it out like an old-timey baseball player with a mouthful of chaw. After the third time we emptied the little bag that came with it, we just abandoned the bag and let the grass fly all over creation.

    If you are here looking to perhaps switch over from a gas to an electric mower, please allow me to share a few thing I wish someone had told me when I first started using an electric mower:

    – you need the right cord: different extension cords have different gauges (this might have been why my first two electric mowers bit the dust prematurely). The gauge depends on the length of the cord itself. DO NOT IGNORE THIS PART. I’ve had 2 electric mowers before this Sun Joe, and I think this is probably what killed them (using the wrong cord).

    – you need to be realistic about your expectations: they are never as strong as gas-powered mowers. If you are weak, hurt, impatient with yard work in general, horribly out of shape or otherwise don’t think you can push around ~30lbs then don’t get this. I’m in relatively decent shape (I do Jillian Michaels 3 days a week!) and even I struggle sometimes with getting this mower up and over my lumpy yard (I have no idea why it’s lumpy. It just is.)

    – because electric mowers aren’t as strong, you can end up going over the same area multiple times (3, 4, sometimes even 5 if your grass is high enough). You have to use common sense – when you hear the mower struggling, STOP MOWING. If you don’t, you’ll do what I did to my first two electric mowers and burn out your motor (learn from my fail, people).

    – these don’t really save time as far as the mowing itself (see above), but it is REALLY REALLY NICE to just be done when you’re done mowing (no oil, spark plugs, gas to worry about storing, etc). You literally just wipe it down, make sure all the nuts and bolts are still tight then wheel that sucker into the garage and take a nap.

    As you can see from the photos, 1.) this mower was able to handle my decent sized yard (over the course of several days) and 2.) I really wasn’t lying to you when I said I don’t care what my yard looks like, as long as the grass isn’t higher than the fence (so the neighbors won’t complain!) The before photo is what the entire lawn looked like before I started. Don’t get me wrong – this wasn’t an easy job. The Sun Joe did stutter and seize up a few times, especially when I got into tough areas of grass (where the blades of grass are like actual blades, WTF). But ultimately, it was able to take everything down with multiple passes.

    I choose to use electric mowers because they’re better for the environment, less noisy and I don’t have to figure out where to store gas or how to maintain the mower each fall. I’m willing to mow my yard in sections (giving both myself and the mower a rest), and go over areas multiple times, and do it over a course of several days. If you’re short on time or patience with a yard larger than a postage stamp, then skip right over this guy and pony up the money for a good gas mower. If, however, you’re like me and too lazy to upkeep a gas mower AND super cheap (and willing to do boring labor over a week), then this guy is pretty hard to beat for the price.

    Despite all the great reviews, I had pretty low expectations, especially considering the state of my yard. Even on a good day, my yard is a mess haha. We live in the south, so things grow fast. We have weeds, vines, lumps and bumps, large tree roots, and lots of small sticks and pine cones falling on the daily. I went out of town for nearly three weeks at the start of spring, my yard was a wreck when I came back! I’d put off buying a mower for a long time, but finally enough was enough.

    This thing handled everything like a champ! I picked up some of the pine cones and larger sticks, but there was still a lot of debris. Some of the weeds were up to knee height, and there were a number of dense patches of mixed vines and ivy. I rarely went over any areas twice, and all the debris and uneven terrain made no noticeable impact on performance. My front and backyard are pretty large, but despite the small size of this mower I was done fast! It’s very light and easy to push, not exhausting at all. We’ll see how it holds up, but for the price you can’t go wrong!

    Update:
    After a month and a half of use, I have one complaint. The mower bag is VERY fragile; be hypervigilant about emptying it, the mesh separates from the plastic bottom very easily if it’s too full. I ended up repairing the tear with Seam Grip, then reinforced the whole seam with Duct Tape. Since the mower is so small you’ll end up emptying the bag A LOT if you have a big yard, but even so I still think this mower is a steal for the price. For under $100 you can’t really expect perfection, and this little guy gets the job done.
