I'm VERY torn whether to pickup a gas or battery mower. I want battery to be better but I'm not at all convinced yet.

To make matters more interesting I moved to an area where electricity is roughly 7.5c a kW (Washington). But I just can't figure out which mower is going to last... These $300-600 mowers I can't imagine having to service the mower regularly AND THEN drop $150-200 on a battery every couple years if it's a pos and every 5 if not.

And THEN even if it's a decent mower the company will still probably go under and stop making batteries for it. ugh
LOL... WTF are you talking about?? Sell your house quick since lightning "probably" will strike it soon!!

Bought with Citi Costco card for extra warranty and no tax in CA was a big plus too.

I can appreciate your desire to dig deep in the numbers.

Do you already own a mower? Gas or Electric? How much were you going to spend on a gas mower vs how much on electric ($320 this deal)?

What maintenance are you referring to? With electric - no gas, oil, spark plugs, tune up, pull cord, etc. You still have to keep undercarriage clean and airflow open, and of course pay attention to the blade.

I'd think even with higher than average rate of electricity, charging this battery would live in the realm of low power devices in your home.

A lot depends on your situation too though - grass area, leaves, type of grass, terrain, mow frequency, etc. These additions could either mean you need a new battery ($200) or more charges on this one. They also mean more gas, oil, trips to get those things, the "dirty" process of filling, cleaning, and maintaining the gas engine (not fun for some).

Say at worst, in 3 years you need a new battery. I doubt this Greenworks brand will be gone anytime soon. $67/year for the battery. I think this would put you in break even territory between cost of ownership between Gas/Electric over the life of the mower.

Then also consider with electric, it's arguably better for the environment, less fumes in your yard/home, way less noise (you can converse with your spouse while laughing at your confused neighbor who can't hear anything over the tiny engine they're pushing around), generally cleaner, and comes in a cool green color.

My reasoning was that, in the ~$500-600 range total cost of ownership for 6-9 years for what I hope is a good enough mower for me, I'm happy going electric.

Found one website that suggested not needing to maintain gas/oil could lead to electric being cheaper to run and maintain.

I left my old mower in another state and just bought a place with a 6-7k sqft lawn that's mostly flat. The grass is very thick though, wife's dad ran his 190 some odd cc mower at it and said he was struggling.

I think I have this model, got it at Lowe's with the 5ah battery. My prior mower, a 10 year old toro personal pace "recycler" would clog up with tall or damp grass (sometimes you just can't get a second cut in each week). That toro would stall out, unlike the mower I had before, the toro had a flat deck with little space between the blade and the underside body.

Tired of that plus the every other year carb rebuild, even though I only put top tier gas in it, no grocery gas.

My greenworks mower experience has been excellent.

The last time I sent my gas mower into a local shop for "servicing" it cost me -- by the time they were done screwing around with it, including "finding a problem" I didn't have before -- nearly as much as a new mower. At this point a deal like this on a quality GW mower (minus tax too) is absolutely the way to go. Forget the gas, forget the "tune up" jobs you need to do over time -- local places, at least around me, are notorious for that kind of thing. I'd rather spend the $$ on a new battery as maintenance than dealing with the local clown shop and paying for gas, etc.

This is why I decided to go electric. Got tired of changing spark plugs, tune ups etc.

I don't mind buying a new battery every 4-5 years to keep this thing running.

Why do these companies go to multiple different sets of battery voltage? I already have several 40v and 80v tools. The 80v tools are far superior and I love them though.

Showing out of stock for me. I'm looking at getting one because I have very mild asthma and my lungs usually feel like they're on fire from the exhaust fumes after mowing 1/4" acre with my otherwise flawless Honda mower.

For those on the fence, don't forget corded mowers if you don't have a lot of obstacles in the middle of the yard. I've had solely a B&D and a Greenworks over the past 15 years and they've held up really well, especially sing both were around $150.

After hundreds of mows, I've only cut the cord once (second time using it).

I'm in the market for a battery mower but this is the upper limit of my price point, especially if the battery only lasts a few years.

Get that $450 Honda gas mower from home depot. Take care of it and it may outlive you. I moved to electric for trimmer, blower, and hedge trimmer. I'm a firm believer in sticking with gas for mower and snow blower

Same. I paid $200 last spring to get work done on my gas mower when I only paid $320 for it. I think I'll run the gas one a couple more seasons and then switch over.

Anyone have any idea how this mower compares to the Craftsman 56V?

If you store the battery properly, especially in winter, you won't have to. Maybe 10 years.
