[Canadian Tire] Greenworks 60V 5Ah Self-Propelled RWD Cordless Lawn Mower, 21-in - $100 off, now $599

Hello all,


First time I spotted a good deal and wanted to give back! I had to borrow my neighbour's lawn mower yesterday (old one broke) which is the same model as the above. He bought it a few weeks ago for $700? and it ran great. Brought it back to my neighbour and he pointed out that this one dropped $100.

From what I saw online, nothing comes close in terms of its battery (60 V - most other versions at this price point are 40 V ), functions (self-propelled - similar price points don't have this feature), and price. I snagged it and can't wait to pick it up to use. Some specs below:

The Greenworks 60V Self-Propelled RWD Brushless Lawn Mower is designed with a durable 21" steel deck and features a 3-in-1 design for mulching, side discharge or rear bag capability. It has a single-lever, 7-position height adjustment for easy adjustment. The brushless motor is equipped with Smart Cut™ technology to help improve performance and extend run-time. Most importantly, the self-propelled design lets you set your own pace with it's variable speed. This lawnmower is designed to make mowing feel like less of a chore.
FEATURES

Greenworks 60V 5Ah Self-Propelled RWD Cordless Lawn Mower is powered by a 60V, 5Ah battery which offers up to 60 minutes of run time
DigiPro™ Brushless technology improves performance, motor life and extends run-time
Features a durable 21" (53.3 cm) steel deck and a 20" (50.8 cm) cutting path
Self-propelled design with rear-wheel drive and variable speed
3-in-1 functionality to include rear-bag collection, mulching and side-discharging
Single-lever, 7-position cutting height adjustment from 1-3/8" to 3-3/4"
Quiet operation and push button start for added convenience
Battery charge time - 2.5 Hrs
Replacement parts : 2.0 Ah Battery (060-7168), 2.5 Ah Battery (060-0747), 5.0 Ah Battery (060-0748), Charger (060-7543)

I would check online in advance, as the CT's where I live are practically sold out and I'd just purchase online and go for curbside pickup to be safe) but definitely a good deal and worth a short drive, if necessary.

If you need a new lawnmower or are getting your first, I highly recommend this model. Hope this helps!

In this price bracket aren't you better to go for the EGO?

You got a really good deal then! Argh!

At the moment though, it's $749. I guess if one can wait for the 80v model to go on sale (if it does) they really should. The one I posted isn't a huge step down though. You would get definitely get more power with the 80V model and at 4.0 AH, the specs say it would last for 50 mins. 60V at 5.0AH for the one I posted would be less power and run time overall, but the specs say up to 60 mins. For me, my lawn has some slopes, so the adjustable self-propelled feature is really useful. If your lawn isn't flat or it's hard to push, it's a really good feature that is worth the premium compared to non-self-propelled models.

I still think this model is a good deal, at least at this moment in time. I was hoping for more deals for Father's Day but it is what it is.

Two words: Canadian tire.

If you open it and it’s dead on arrival or doesn’t work or you don’t even use it and want to return it they won’t take it back.

Only things I buy at crappy tire are things under $20

Not sure what you're talking about. I've never had an issue returning defective items there.

Not a comment on the deal but I feel like the point needs to be made.
Voltage does not equal power. You could have a 1000V battery in a tool and it could have less power than an 18V tool. Power is equal to voltage x current. The only real issue is how much current you need to get the desired amount of power and if the battery has been designed to supply that much current. Having an 80V tool is not inherently better than a 40V tool, the 40V tool would just need to draw twice as much current to provide the same amount of power. The marketers at the companies that make these tools know that people think higher voltage = more power = better but that's simply not the case comparing between brands especially when things like brushed vs brushless come in which have different torque curves for the same amount of electrical power.

Your electrical theory is 100% correct for an electric heater. For a mower or any battery powered rotating machines, you should be more concerning about torque (and speed) instead when looking for good performance. The torque output of a DC motor is proportional to voltage. Without turning this into an academic discussion, just google search and you'll see. A quick explanation in laymen term can be found here.

Argh, second time writing this. @@ I think this is a pretty a good deal if you are okay without the self-propelled feature and need the blower. I wish they sold a lawnmower/trimmer/blower set because I saw combos with the first two but got spoiled using a blower and held off. I went with a Craftsman 20V trimmer and blower set on sale at Lowes and while the blower is ok, I'm impressed with the trimmer.

So fair to say that in a 40V vs 20V battery, you could get more torque out of the 40? Would that mean it could handle taller/thicker grass?

I also heard that Amp hours is also an important feature, as a higher rating means it could go for longer?

I'm seeing $561 on clearance right now at Lowe's?

https://www.lowes.ca/product/cordless-e ... wer-887747

Edit: there's also a $45 dynamic coupon with purchases > $550.

I'm happy with the EGO I bought several years ago on Kijiji - might be able to get a discount in late summer/early fall at Home Depot. I agree with you on the self-propelled not really being needed for everyone - my model doesn't have it but I have a largely flat lawn, so it's not terribly difficult to push. Also, the self-propelled feature will eat into the battery life for those that have it (my last cordless mower happened to have it - never really used the feature), so again, unless you really need it, non-self-propelled is probably the better way to go.

Edit #2: Also just to add, for those that have small garages like me, look for a mower that can fold away / stored upright (most of the EGO models can). Not sure this model is capable of that (I believe the Toro cordless can though).

I clicked twice and it's still showing $749. I'm in K/W so it might be store dependent? Image below:

https://ibb.co/713tRS2

I didn't really consider the fact it'd eat into the battery. I would (more below) report on how much it takes on my battery doing a go through of the whole yard but I uncovered a snag.

So I set it up, tested it out, worked fine, folded it up...went into the garage to get the S/N for registering and the front plastic piece looked off. I looked at it, tried to put it back into place and realized it was cracked and now it completely came off. :| It seems to be an aesthetic piece but can't say I'm 100% impressed. The tape on the box looked a bit funny and I even took a picture before I opened it to prove it. Wonder if it was a return? It was pretty clean otherwise but Le sigh...seeing as it was the last one, maybe Greenworks can send a clip or the thing it needs to be remounted properly. @@ If there were 100 in stock, I'd just return it, but I think it's sold out?

Hate to say it, but sometimes, I do seriously wonder about the quality of stuff at CT.

Still a good deal and I'm sure this is just a bit of bad luck.

That sucks - I know Greenworks is not necessarily top tier or anything, but I still would expect better than that. Hopefully they can just send you a replacement part.

Here's what I'm seeing at Lowe's (location defaulting to Mississauga);

From what I read in reviews, Greenworks was thought of well. Truthfully, I am sure the machine would run fine without the plastic cover on the front but it wouldn't look right and frankly, I don't expect it to fall off before my first use. @@ Hopefully, CT doesn't shaft me here.

I actually had tried a few other Lowe's stores online without success. Go figure., that location is the only one (learned something new here though!) It's really tempting, especially if I had a 20% off coupon (that'd be a steal) but for me:
- it'd be an hour drive and back (I'm okay with it but meh)
- runtime of about 45 minutes - the 80V battery has more power but the last time I mowed and mulched, it took me just under an hour, which means I'd have to take a break, charge it up, come back. May not be a bad thing (I could do some trimming in the meantime) but with the 60 V model, I'm thinking it'll just make the hour tops. I wish I could compare both models over the long haul to see performance, ability, and longevity
- the biggest actual setback is this is final sale and I think you could see why I'm a bit...apprehensive lol

Still, if you are in the Mississauga area, have a not too huge lawn, and have good luck, I'd go for the above!
