I just thought I would share my experience with these cordless electric yard tools. Most folks here know I am a small engine mechanic and ran a landscape company for many years so I am very experienced with power equipment. I'll start of with saying I was skeptical of their claims of the power of gas. So I used these tools for a whole season to get a good feel for them and give an honest evaluation and opinion. Keep in mind my previous mower was a snapper self propelled with a big gas engine, side chute and bag. I have to say I absolutely love this mower! It took me a few cuts to get used to the fact that it makes almost no noise, I had to keep looking behind me to make sure it was cutting, lol. I never once put the bag on it, always mulched, and it never labored even in tall wet grass, it automatically ups the power on demand. I would slow the pace down when it was tall as it would leave stragglers due to the fact that it uses a no lift mulch blade, but the gas mower would too. Next thing I liked about it was it weighs nothing! I purchased the self propelled model because I have always run snapper self propelled mowers. But I really dont need that with this mower and I could have saved another hundred bucks going with a push mower. Next thing is the battery charges from dead flat to fully charged in less than an hour and I can cut my lawn 3 times on one charge. I'll post some pics and show some other things I like about it. Oh yeah, @Kenbo says I'm gay because I got rid of all my gas lawn equipment. But what does he know, he's Canadian, lol more pics and further discussion soon.
