Sun-Joe-Mow-Joe-MJ407E-20-Inch-BagMulchSide-Discharge-Electric-Lawn-Mower-0This is our full and unbiased review of the Sun Joe MJ401E Mow Joe Electric Lawn Mower.  Well straight away this bright green lawn mower certainly looks attractive, and with its 14 inch wide blades it also cuts a respectable sized area.  It also offers the ability to raise and lower the blades height which is ideal for keen gardeners.  The 3 height adjustment should be used in early spring when ideally grass should be trimmed regularly before lowering the blades for a closer cut as the grass starts to develop.

Overall Product Rating: ★★★★½

This is also ideal to use on fresh turfed lawn as the high blade facility goes to nearly two and a half inches or 6 centimetres.  The rear grass collecting bag is made from sold good quality plastic and can easily be removed making cutting convenient and easy.

With collapsible handles and a detachable grass box, it’s also great for storing in small storage areas.  And with the Sun Joe MJ401E also comes with a full 2 year manufacture warranty.

Sun Joe MJ401E Product Positive Reviews

Sun Joe MJ401E Mow Joe reviewThis light weight lawn mower operates with ease and the motor is relatively quite unlike some other models.  It is a low cost model so doesn’t expect it to be made from anything but plastic but the mower does a good job on maintained grass.

Its powerfull enough to cut most small to medium sized lawns but don’t expect it to cut tall or wet grass very well if at all.  But even high end models struggle with that some times.

As a side note you really shouldn’t let your lawn grow that long anyway.  The cut it leaves is uniform and smooth, but you will probably need to keep the blades nice and sharp for optimum performance.  My top tip is to purchase a metal file, and give your blades a quick sharpening before every use.  Your instantly see the difference when the grass has a clean cut to it.

Sun Joe MJ401E Product Negative Reviews

A lot of people have had 2 distinct issues with this model, the first one been the complete failure of the motor and the second one with the wheels falling off.

Sun Joe MJ401E Video ReviewSeveral complaints have focused around this issue.  However I am fully aware that a motor is a sensitive piece of equipment and sometimes they do go wrong.  This isn’t just isolated to this lawn mower as its quite a common issue for any electrical motor.

The other common issue is the grass basket is quite small so requires regular emptying when in use.   In addition to this several people had an issue with the blade height adjustments slipping during use.  But these are small issue that can easily be overlooked when purchasing a quality electric lawn mower at this low price point.  This is a small unit and many people have commented on the fact that it looks like a toy mower and sounds like a vacuum.  But overall it ticks a lot of boxes and nothing that can’t be fixed.

Sun Joe MJ401E Review Summary

Overall Product Rating: ★★★★½

This is ideal for people with small to medium yards, but if you do have a large yard size that needs cutting I would recommending considering another machine.  Its also ideal for people looking for an extremely lightweight lawn mower who find a traditional lawn mower to heavy to use.  This is a light weight model and is very maneuverable.
