Was picking up my Greenworks mower found here on SD so I figured I'd walk the store.
I found this on clearance in Covina, CA.

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Husqvarn...1000178955

I actually have a Husky with a Honda mower and its worked great for 8 years now. Only need to add gas and it starts right up on 1st or 2nd pull. Getting up in years and wanted to upgrade to electric self propelled. Otherwise, I'd be all over this.

Someone else, please add brickseek!

Have this for three years. First pull start! A little on the loud side, bit it's common for most gas run mowers. Does get bogged down if grass is tall AND wet. Otherwise, I have seen it shred even a rock to pieces (by mistake). Haven't changed the blade since the cuts are even. No complaints but wish it had some more power in terms of CC. Can't go wrong with this price. OP stay away from electric if you have lawn bigger than 1/4 acre. Electric mowers are joke.

Seems to be basically 259 everywhere near me, looking to get one of their riding tractors though 👍

Thanks. I have a small lawn that has terrain. My Husky's still going strong. It's my body that's falling apart!

I saw one of these just on the floor. No price, no other boxes. It was literally just kinda there next to the grills.

Electric mowers are no joke. You just need to get one that is suited for what you want to mow.

Agree, sort of. I have just under 1/2 acre. I've tried 6 different electric mowers. Some self propelled, some not. 40v, 56v, 60v and 82v. None of them could do what my gas mower can do performance wise. Issues like bogging down in thick grass, thick, not tall. Battery(s) not lasting. Poor mulching. Bag filled quickly due to large grass clippings. Bag not filling all the way due to not throwing clippings to the rear of the bag. Clogged grass in the mower while mulching. Clogged grass where it enters the bag. They all did poorly in damp grass.

I think electric mowers have come a long way but they are not on the level of a good gas powered mower yet.

My local Lowe's had one in stock so ordered online for pickup in store. I've been looking for a decent deal on something to replace a pos Murray that I'm tired of fixing. The awd version was discounted as well, but rwd had better reviews and was a bit cheaper. Thanks

It sounds like you've been looking at mowers that are underpowered for what it is that you are wanting to mow. Electrics are plenty capable of getting the job done, you just need to get one suited for the conditions that you mow. For example, here's one in 2 feet of wet grass that'll run circles around this gas little underpowered gas husqvarna: https://youtu.be/5FA51RxwjNs

There are many arguments for getting one over the other, but the point is that electrics aren't a "joke" as long as you match the mower to your requirements.

Sounds as if they are not on the level of an average gas mower yet.

I see your point but I'm really just looking at 21"-22" push mowers that are reasonably priced for the average homeowner. The mower you show in the YouTube video is a commercial mower and it costs $23,000 https://superlawntrucks.com/proje...-23362-00/

Bingo! I bought a Green Works battery mower last year. Lawn was about 3-4" and this mower got bogged down way too easily. Boxed and returned it a few hours later. Gutless mowers.

Have you ever seen a commercial/professional lawn mowing person use a electric? Right..neither have I.
