You can have my electric mower when you pry it out of my deZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzztttttttt
Can I borrow it??
Corded or cordless? Lithium battery? Cost? Weight? Does it handle thick grass? I have lots of questions.
Ok, obviously cordless.
Cordless. I believe it’s a lead acid battery. I think it was around $300? Battery on this model pops right out so you can have spares ready, but I’ve never needed that. Easily does front or back yards, sometimes both at once. My yards are not dinky either. Absolutely no maintenance, my favorite part. Really tall grass is a problem. Going slow and bagging instead of mulching helps then.
ok, $385. And there’s a newer model. Mine is three years old (and I had two previous models before that—Steve doesn’t do gas mowers.)
Black & Decker CM1936ZA 36V Lithium Ion Cordless Lawn Mower , 19″ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010UOB6OE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_2ftoxb7YT18QY
And lithium ion apparently.
I have no idea how the weight compares to a gas mower. MUCH quieter though. Start and stop as often as you want, which is very nice.
I like the convenience and low maintenance of electric mowers, but lithium models and so expensive and lead acid models are so heavy.
$385 doesn’t seem expensive to me for what you get.
I like the convenience of paying someone else to do it…
I have rocks!!
Steve Crooks, it claims to use a lithium battery, but I see evidence that it’s actually lead acid. It’s much heavier than the Greenworks lithium mowers; there are comments by amazon customers claiming it’s lead acid; and the replacement battery on walmart.com (http://www.walmart.com/ip/30224762) says lead acid. I want to buy one for my mom, but 90 pounds is too heavy.
Yeah it’s weird. You’re supposed to keep it plugged in all winter which sounds like lead acid to me. But it says really big on top lithium ion. Truth be told I don’t really care: it works. As for 90 pounds, that’s hard to believe. There may indeed be other brands that are better in some way, black & decker is the only one I’ve ever used. Maybe when this one wears out… I just know that I’ll always stick with battery power.
