Lawn Mowers

Electric Mowers

Electric MowersShould you purchase one of the electric mowers that are available or stick with a standard gas mower that you have likely used for many years? This is the big question for a lot of consumers. They ask themselves this question as they become more aware of environmental issues. They want to make a contribution. Even if it is in a small way by using less gasoline and oil in their daily lives. Then there is the convenience of not needing to purchase and store gasoline. You do not need to store it around your home or service your lawn mower when it needs an oil change.

Electric Mowers – Size of Your Yard

If you have a relatively small yard to cut, electric mowers are a potential solution. You can cut the lawn easily with one battery charge. Or with a lawn mower that is electric but needs to be powered by an electric extension chord. As you approach 1/4 acre in size, you begin to test the limits of your battery. You may be unable to finish cutting the lawn with one charge. Note that as the battery ages, it will store less and less power. At some point a second battery may be required.

For the writer who has a larger lawn to mow, an electric powered lawn mower is really not an option. However if one was available that would be able to cut the lawn on one battery charge, I would definitely consider one of the electric mowers.  I would not need store oil and gasoline around my home. This can be a fire hazard and an environmental issue for me. I would definitely like to move away from a gas powered lawn mower. I will consider an electric mower with two batteries to do the job.

Buying electric mowers that are powered by extension chords is really not an option for me. I do not have the patience to deal with the chord. We have lots of trees and shrubs to cut around in our yard. Too much hassle for me in this case.
