Another model by Husqvarna is the Husqvarna 6021P 21-Inch 149cc Kohler XT-6 Gas Powered 3-N-1 Push Lawn Mower With High Rear Wheels. Independent mower reviews comment that for a push mower (it is not powered) it does a great job. It has 3.6 stars out of 5, so it is not one of the “top” mowers, but it is a decent model. We included it, because it is reasonably priced and provides real value. Of the negative reviews, most of the consumers mention that the Kohler Engine failed on them. There are not a lot of bad reviews, but it should be taken into account. If you are from the State Of California, this mower is not for you, as it is not compliant. Overall we think that this mower is a buy. Click here for the best price: Husqvarna 6021P 21-Inch 149cc Kohler XT-6 Gas Powered 3-N-1 Push Lawn Mower With High Rear Wheels
The Greenworks 25022 20-Inch 12 Amp Electric Bag/Mulch/Side Discharge Lawn Mower mower has amazing reviews. It has 4.5 stars (out of 5).

This model can easily fold up, so you can store it after you fold it up. The cutting deck is made from steel to ensure that it will last you a long time. This is an electric lawn mower, so you are doing your part by not adding additional carbon to the atmosphere. The EPA estimates that Americans use more than 800 million (yes million!) gallons of gas to mow their lawns! Keep in mind that the Exxon Valdez catastrophe dumped close to 17 million gallons into the ocean, so if you decide to mow with electricity, you are helping out.
