Best Outdoor Power Equipment – [2020 Updated List]

The 18 Best Pieces of Lawn Equipment To Buy This Year

Each year at BestHomeGear.Com we recognize the Best Outdoor Power Equipment on the Market. We compile our list of Top outdoor equipment rankings by their popularity – including lawnmowers, weed eaters, leaf blowers, hedge trimmers, etc. As a Quick Reference Guide for homeowners and contractors. 

Let’s face it, some folks don’t have the time to wade through a mountain of reviews – So for that reason, our top outdoor equipment rankings only include the very “best power equipment” in each category.

How We Rank Outdoor Equipment

The outdoor power equipment reviewed in this post – are the most popular pieces currently used by homeowners in the United States – Gas, Battery Powered or Electric (corded).  There are many manufacturers for each type of power equipment – and It can be a bit overwhelming to know which model is the “best value” vs. one that is just “cheap”. 

To compile our annual list, we scour the earth each year for the Best Tool in each Category.  We then rank each piece of lawn equipment by Overall Sales volume and “Real User” ratings within each product category* (lawnmower, leaf blower).

The winning manufacturer and model number make our “Best of Outdoor Power Equipment” List.

*To source the most independent and accurate data available, we use statistics from the largest home & lawn Improvement sites in the U.S.(Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot), and then summarize their totals.

Note: Sales data based on affiliate sales at besthomegear.com, is Not included in the winner’s list.  The list is updated annually – the current version is January 2, 2020.
