Einhell has been around in the gardening lawn mower industry since the 1960s and is widely known for creating reliable electric mowers, petrol lawn mower types and other Einhell lawn garden equipment.
This Einhell GE-CM 18/33 LI cordless electric mower in particular is one of the most popular mowers in the Einhell electric battery mower range and is perfect for the average garden which is around 200m² in size.
So as you can see if this cordless Einhell is a friendly choice for mowing your garden, we have reviewed its features below and overall advantages and disadvantages so as you can have a clear judgement about whether or not this mower is right for you.
This Einhell robust machine comes with a huge amount of notable features such as its interchangeable battery packs, lightweight and height adjustable blade, however, so as we can see just how worth it this cordless mower is, we have reviewed each feature type individually.
Let's get into it below.
First off and most importantly, let's discuss the power system of this Einhell lawnmower review. The cordless mower features one 18V 4.0Ah lithium-ion battery, this a high-performance battery from Einhell and can be interchanged in between other Einhell garden tools as long as they require an 18V battery.
The mower additionally comes with a power X-change charger for the charging of batteries and a battery capacity indicator on the mower that has three LEDs showing the power status of the battery packs.
As well as the Einhell lawn mower being powered by its 4.0Ah battery, the mower also uses a brushless motor to help the robust machine cut grass in a faster time frame, it uses a brushless motor for this job which is durable and avoids fuel costs ongoing with petrol mowers.
Overall, we think that the power system of the Einhell lawn mower cordless model is pretty high performance and impressive for a robust machine of this small price. The battery itself is high in power capacity and does not take more than an hour to recharge, and the fact you can switch it between other Einhell garden machines makes it great value for money.
We also appreciate the Einhell lawn mower has a battery level indicator which many low priced models do not have.
What we don't like about this Einhell cordless lawn mower has to be its lack of additional batteries which would have been great for extending the run time of this cordless mower.
The power of this mower is also not suitable for larger lawns or thick grass/steep hills, so you should keep this in mind if you have a bigger garden and go for a more powerful mower instead such as the Einhell GC-PM 46 S model.
Next up, let's talk about the blades on this Einhell lawn mower. The robust machine comes with a 33-centimetre blade width making it ideal for small garden sizes and level lawns under 300m2 in size.
The blades of this mower further come with an entire cutting deck which has a central cutting height adjustment lever so as you can set the mower to cut grass height at a specific measurement, whether low or high.
Its height range of cutting varies between five levels of 25mm-65mm and can all be adjusted via the central height lever to your exact cutting height desired.
The blade system for this Einhell lawn mower is pretty standard for its price and more than enough to give you a professional cut to your small lawn, it's five-level central height adjustment system is also easy to switch through and control thanks to the position.
We do feel as if the height options of this cordless mower are slightly limited with the height adjustment capability only ranging between 25mm and 65mm, while most allow you to cut as short as 20mm with 7 cutting heights, this may be a disappointment if you are after that golf grass short look to your lawn.
Design-wise, the Einhell lawn mower is mainly made up of durable plastic components which are resistant to plastic so as it can hold its own against any nasty bumps or impacts during mowing.
The basic design edge has foldable handles too for easier storage which are also height-adjustable handlebar handles into three different positions and a carrying handle that allows you to move the high-grade, impact-resistant plastic mower around with ease.
One of the most notable design aspects of this resistant plastic mower has to be its extra-high rear wheels which are 180mm in diameter compared to its 150mm front driving wheels allowing for better movement of the mower on grass.
Total weight of the mowers comes in at just 11kg too.
In terms of design, this Einhell mower is made to be very durable with its high-quality, impact-resistant plastic body and is very lightweight, making it easy to push around for anyone without your having to get fatigued or be strong.
We also like how the foldable handle includes adjustable positions too which allows the mower to be comfortable for any user.
The only downfall we can suggest about this Einhell mowers design has to be the fact that it is mainly up of plastic which might not have as high of a build-quality in comparison to other mowers which are on the market, but this is mainly due to its low price.
For extra features, the Einhell cordless mower comes with a 30L grass box collector capacity which should be adequate for a small garden size, the mower does not have a mulching function or roller, however.
For the low price of this cordless 18V mower, we did not expect Einhell to included many extra features on this machine such as roller or mulching function, the grass collector unit is a great size according to the cutting width of the mower.
Downfalls have to be the lack of accessories such as a mulching function or a rear roller for creating professional stripes on your lawn, but you might find this on more expensive mowers by Einhell instead.
After reviewing all the major features of this Einhell lawn mower, you might still be on the fence about whether or not this model is right for you, so to complete this lawn mower review overview, we will sum up the most notable advantages of this lawnmower below as well as its disadvantages.
This cordless battery Einhell mower comes with a huge variety of advantages in comparison to other mowers of a similar price on the market, despite this models mainly plastic build, it is rated to be very durable and lightweight to move around.
The design has a decent grass collector and cutting width which makes the mower perfect for anyone average small backyard which needs maintenance.
We appreciate the interchangeable battery system of this lawn mower too, as well as the battery level indicator included for its price.
Although this Einhell cordless model is pretty great for its price, there are some notable downfalls of the model and you should bear in mind that you get what you pay for with this mower.
Firstly, the lawnmower is not designed to be used for large lawns which are not level, it also has a limited cutting height feature which will not allow you to get a very short cut on your grass.
The mower by Einhell additionally has a lack of extra features such as a mulching function or rear roller so might be limited on what else it can do for your lawn. There is likewise an absence of additional batteries which can be helpful to extend the run time of your mower.

This model from Einhell is perfect if you are on a budget thanks to its low price and is pretty much a no-fail buy thanks to its durable parts and build.
In terms of who should not buy this mower, this should be if you are looking for a mower that can cut large lawns or one which comes with more height adjustor options for its blades and extra features.
