Quote from Ghandi2002
:
How's battery life after a year? Sounds like there can be some issues with not charging / holding charge.
I have the same mower without self propulsion except mine came with a 4ah battery.
My lawn is almost 1/2 acre
In the summer i cut the grass every 7-10 days.
in the winter i cut the grass every 14-21 days.
I also have the leaf blower(came with 5ah battery) + the string trimmer (came with 2.5ah battery)
If the grass is very long or wet, i will need to use more than 1 battery to cut the lawn.
If the grass is dry or regular height, i can usually get it all with 1 battery.
The mower is great.
The leaf blower is great.
The string trimmer is great, too.
No noticeable degradation in battery life, yet.
Blows my mind how loud gas mowers are not that I'm used to my "quiet" lawn tools.
I would buy it all over again if i were given the opportunity - no regrets.

Search shows people mentioned groves are different
I can physically confirm that they work. I bought a few Powerworks 60v tools and the batteries are interchangeable.

A third acre might be a stretch for one 5Ah battery.
Definitely. I have a self-propelled Craftsman V60 with a 7.5ah battery, and I can cut my 1/3 acre lot if I move quickly, but just barely. If the grass is tall when I cut it (too wet to cut it frequently in the spring) I have to go slow and can't quite finish the whole lot. FWIW, I like that mower though.

There are too many goddamn battery ecosystems. I need a lawn mower but buying into another battery platform when you already own several makes for a weird feeling.

I moved to Washington and finally have a yard to mow at 38 y.o (my mom always had a corded mower which was dumb simple, but it's been a looong time since I mowed her yard). Sat here looking through all the expired mower threads last month when the grass came back to life after being dormant all winter... but found a gas mower with a "free" sign while going on a walk later that day.

Next day I got to teach my 6yo son what a PITA small gas engines are. He kinda looked at me like I was teaching him trepanning (medieval brain surgery); his generation won't ever squeeze a priming bulb, or clean varnish out of a carb, and they won't be any worse off for it. I got that sucker running, without any starting fluid even, and then one of the wheels fell off. Guess he's going to learn about the magic of JB Weld next.

I'm no mower connoisseur but this gas one dies when I'm cutting wet grass despite it running relatively well. And it's heavy AF pushing it up the slope. I remember the corded electric didn't weigh much.

So to the dude earlier in the thread, if you're the sort of person who drills holes in his skull to let the pressure out, get the gas mower.

Whoa, the free mower on the side of the road, someone's actual garbage, SUCKS??? You ever hear that expression "you get what you pay for"? Yeah, didn't think so.

If you base your opinion of a technology on what you find in the trash, you're going to have a bad time.

Buy a Honda mower. Fill oil. Pour gas. Pull cord. Done.

There's no way a battery mower is cheaper to own than a gas mower. I've had my gas mower 35yrs and it still works fine. I use about 2gal of gas per year and even at CA prices that is like only $6. I've changed the air filter once and the spark plug once and never changed the oil(don't want to spend money on those suction motor kit). The only thing is now the rubber gas hose is leaking(starting to rot) so I need to replace it but not bad for 35yrs. Other things did break though since this was a self-propelled but the lines and belts broke but i like the exercise so I never fix. How many battery packs will you use over 35yrs and will the company even be around in 35yrs
GTFO. I was with you until you claimed you run on 35 year old oil. Maybe if you're burning and adding a quart a year, but I think you're spinning a tale.

It takes me about 45 minutes to an hour to mow my lawn. This battery lasts 'up to an hour'. No thanks. I don't want to get 90% done and then have to wait 5 hours to charge the battery, or have to buy another one. I'll just take the 30 seconds to put more gas in if I need it, thank you.

Get another tool with a battery and no issue. I got a deal on the gw 60v chainsaw and within a few months I got the tiller and snow blower each on clearance for $100. Snow blower came with a 4.5 ah battery. I've had the black and Decker 40v trimmer and mower for 8 years. Added a chainsaw and hedge trimmer. 1 of the 4 batteries I have died, but I could buy an off brand replacement pretty cheap. I'm really tempted to buy this, but since we moved to 4 acres I only use the b&d mower to do a couple spots. When my gas 48" and 38" mowers die they will be replaced with the Ryobi zero turn or similar.

Edit: half or more of our land is wooded or buildings. I know the Ryobi can't handle 4 acres of cutting.

I have a little under 1 acre, and I'd like to get an electric mower. The grass can get pretty thick, and the backyard gets really weedy. Any recommendations?

For the past 10 years, I've been using an old push mower that my dad gave me (and he had probably been using it for 5 - 10 years at least), and it runs just fine, but I'd like something else. I've been having my son do some mowing, and he has a hard time pulling the cord to start it, and it's a bit heavy for him to push around for a long time. I had been thinking EGO, but it does concern me that they are expensive, and replacement batteries are really expensive, so I'm not sure if I'd be better off with something else. I'd also like to get a string trimmer, and I am not currently locked into any particular brand.

If you can, wait for a clearance deal in the winter. Most the mowers 56v or higher seem to be fine. Some people hate have multiple ecosystems, but I don't see it as much of an issue.

Of course I add oil but no oil change. You don't need that much oil when the engine is used 2x per month in spring and fall and only 1x per month in the summer months. In the winter months, grass barely grows and I mowed 2x overall and even then is barely a handful of grass.

I think with the ecosystems it's all about the batteries. If I buy a mower and a trimmer that each comes with a battery, I could then use both batteries with either device. But if I get different brands, I can't share batteries. And if one battery craps out after the warranty period has passed, I absolutely have to buy another battery, and in some cases the battery by itself costs almost as much as a device with a battery. So, I would like to find a trimmer and a mower where I can share the batteries, and maybe down the line I would add other things. I've mostly been looking at Greenworks and EGO, but EGO is more expensive. I don't know if another brand such as Ryobi is worth considering or not. I want something durable that will last a long time and can hopefully come close to matching the performance of my gas mower and will be user friendly. I'm willing to pay more for that if necessary, but I also don't want to have to be buying new batteries every 5 years if they cost $350. Of course, I imagine that this is what most people are looking for, but most of the comments I've seen involve yards that are 1/3 or less of an acre, so I don't know if the size of my yard would affect someone's recommendation.

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.
Ditto, my 6.75 HP Craftsman bogged down, literally stalled out many times in deeper grass. Thanks to C.A.R.B. governor restrictions. No such issue with this Greenworks mower. My only beef with this mower is the self propel grab bar is poorly located and had been redesigned on the current Lowes model. I suspect this model is just extra inventory Greenworks is burning off, when there gone that's it.

Reminder for So Cal buyers, $200 rebate for this mower through AQMD program when you recycle your old gas mower.
