I posted the 100ah version a while back with mixed feelings on it. But the cheaper 75ah version is $300 cheaper than its larger battery counterpart was when on sale and was a bit easier to digest. So I purchased it, haven't got it yet but it's on the way.

I swear I'm not trying to ram this thing down your throats lol. I've just been keeping my eye on it out of personal interest. It's only for those actually interested in it at all.

Purchased one today as well. Seems to be the lowest price by about $200 this year. Certainly will continue to drop by next year, but good deal with today's conditions. Also did the HD card to get the extra $100 off bringing to $3200 pre tax. Says it will be here by Thursday.
With 30 day return policy, seems worth the risk. Sick of 1h mowing times, time for an improvement.

Nice but I'm waiting for the steering wheel 38" riding mower to be cheaper.

It has had a few sales already. Not as drastic as this I don't think, but they are constantly on and off for sure

This guy claims to have the 1st patented all-electric and battery-powered zero-turn mower. I wonder if this guy ever got paid?

Man, this thing looks really nice! I wish I could justify buying something like thing, but I only have 1/4 acre to mow.

I didn't have any luck with my first venture into battery operated mowers - Greenworks stopped working after the second use and it took months to get it replaced under warranty. To top it off they upgraded me to a bigger sized battery mower (from 20V to 40V) but didn't send me the batteries or the charger. At that point I had already bought another gas mower. To make matters worse, my wife managed to misplace the batteries and charger while spring cleaning, so I have a new 40V that I never even got a chance to use - and I'm too salty to drop another $130+ on a charger and batteries.

I don't have much luck with gas powered mowers either.....turns out you have to do more than just put in the gas and make sure it has oil. My first mower was a hand me down that ran flawlessly until I tried to perform maintenance.....never ran after that, and I never attempted another maintenance either! I'm too cheap to take them anywhere for tune-ups as I can't bear to spend $100 to service a $300 mower.....they tend to run at least 4-5 years without any issues anyway.

But man, I'd love to have this baby. My parents have a 25HP zero turn and that thing is a blast. I imagine this thing would be as well....only better not having to wear hearing protection and/or headphones cranked up to max volume to drown out the engine....not to mention not having to deal with spilling gas, or how I always seem to be out of gas when I need to mow!

Big things for small engines: always use fresh ethanol free gas. If it takes more than a couple weeks to go through a 5gal can, then only fill it part way, or use a 1 gal etc. Use stabil or other treatment if you aren't positive you will use it right up.
Store small equipment without gas in the tank for any extended period. Don't worry if it sits for a week in between mowings, but run it out of gas at the end of the season before storing it for winter.
Perform regular preventative maintenance. Usually every year. For a push mower this is usually an air filter, spark plug, and oil change. Will likely run $20 in parts. Sharpen or replace the blade as well. An oil extractor makes changing oil on small engines a breeze. No more worry about spilling oil, or flooding the carb with gas while holding the mower upside down.
If this is too much for you, then pay someone to do it. Not sure where you looked, but if that $100 included a new blade it's not bad. For annual maintenance and blade the cost for you to do it would be about $40. If that didn't include a new blade then look elsewhere. Most shops will sharpen a blade if you bring it to them for $5-10.

Check out mean green mowers not sure if they are licensing the technology but some cool stuff in the horizon. https://www.youtube.com/user/MeanGreenProducts

I agree with mean green having some neat stuff. They have a solar panel sun shade that pretty much trickle charges while mowing and keeps the sun off the rider. Only if I had that much money and more land to cut. I think around 5 years we will be looking at mean green type attachments on the residential sized electric mowers at a much cheaper price.
