Even if you don’t have an interest in late night lawncare, these eco-friendly machines are taking the yard care industry by storm. They now account for around 15% of the sales of all push mowers. That may not sound like much, but it continues to grow.
Some people choose a battery-powered lawn mower because it’s green, but there are a lot of other benefits to them too. We’ll tell you a little more about them here.
Noise pollution is a real problem. There are now a number of mowers that are perfectly acceptable for you to use at 6 AM when you want to cut your grass without waking your neighbors.
They may not be as quiet as a whisper, like some electric cars, but they are lightyears away from the sound of a gas mower.
Out of all of the top-rated battery-operated mowers in the Consumer Report top five, all of them are between $400-$500. But when you consider how much you’re saving on gas, oil, maintenance, and spark plugs, you’ll break even out that loss before you have to buy a new mower.
Ease of Use
These batteries typically take an hour to charge and can power through 1/3 of an acre with needing a charge. They’re also a great alternative to electric lawnmowers because you don’t have to worry about the cord.
Most of these lawn mowers are made from hard plastic that won’t gouge or scratch. And because there aren’t any fluids to worry about, you can tip your mower over and clean out the underside without worrying about ruining anything.
No Oil or Gas
With battery-powered lawn mowers, you don’t have to buy fuel or change the oil. You also don’t have to worry about storing any of that extra fuel, either. There’s no harmful exhaust or spills to concern yourself with and gone are the days of getting gasoline all over your clothes or hands or having to run to the gas station when you run out of gas in the middle of cutting your lawn.
With these lawn mowers, you don’t have to change fluids, switch spark plugs, or replace air filters. All you have to do is make sure the blade is sharp by sharpening it every spring and that the battery is charged.
