I'm starting a hunt for an electric riding mower. Consumer Reports only had a few that they reviewed though. Anybody have any advice?

I don't think there are many options overall. I shopped riders a few months ago. Most are gas, and electric like this one is quite a bit more expensive than your standard big box gasser from JD.

Worth noting that these are powered by lead acid batteries, not lithium ion.

With an average life of less then 2 years. Cost to replace batteries over $600. This is a bad deal on the mower. I would not buy until they come out with lithium battery.

I spend less than $20 a year on gas. So...$600 +worth of batteries would get me around 20-30 years of gas.

The life expectations on the batteries is 3-7 years, depending on how well you maintain it. Not sure how you got 2 years. When not in use, batteries need to stay charged at 80 percent or higher.

Old battery technology. You'll be sorry you didn't wait for the lithium ion battery version. Wait if you can.

These are deep cycle batteries and it all comes down to use and care. Also, specs for these wouldn't actually be in years anyway. They would be measured in cycles.

Tesla needs to make a mower.

I was kidding at first, but. ... A Tesla ride-on mower would probably sell really well.

Gas, oil, air filter, spark plugs, deck belt, and the time involved to maintain and replace it all versus replacing batteries every 4-6 years.
