Electric Lawn Mowers

Electric Lawn MowersElectric lawn mowers have become very popular in the past few years due to the environmental impact of gas engines and the fact there is much less upkeep with an electric lawn mower. However electric lawn mowers are not for everyone. It is important for consumers to consider the issues before they make a purchase.  For example do you want one with a chord or one that is battery operated? How much lawn do you have to mow? And what about bagging grass clippings?

Electric Lawn Mowers – Size Matters

The general guideline is that if you have more than a 1/4 acre to cut, you probably should go with a gas mower. Under that and battery operated lawn mowers or chorded lawn mowers can do the job. The battery charge will last long enough to complete the job. Batteries age over time. Your battery may not last as long as it once did and you may have to invest in another.

You may not get the power assist feature on electric lawn mowers. This takes a lot of power and larger batteries.

Most consumers really do not want to have to deal with an electric extension chord to power their lawn mower. It is always getting in the way. You have to stretch it around shrubs and other obstacles that you may have in your yard.

The big advantage of an electric lawn mower of course is that there are no oil changes needed and there is no gasoline to purchase or store on your property. This also has a positive environmental impact in terms of operation since these liquids are not being used and do not need to be disposed of i.e. the oil. For the electric battery operated lawn mowers consumers should still dispose of old batteries properly to avoid releasing heavy metal contamination at our landfills.
