…but I just don’t know what to get. My gas powered mower has given up after about fifteen years. I’m not one to do a lot of maintenance (well, really much of any maintenance) on it, so I’m lucky it lasted so long. But, I’m sick to death of pull-start engines. I don’t want a corded mower. I want something where I can say, “I want to mow the yard” and moments later, I’m mowing the yard. No trip to the gas station. No spilling combustible fluid on the motor. No pulling my shoulder out of its socket and cursing like a trucker when I’m trying to start it.
I have a pretty average sized corner city lot. Sometimes, I let the grass grow a little too tall, so a mower is going to need to have the horses to gut through some tall grass, weeds, and clover. If I had to, I could mow the front yard, plug in to charge while I do the trimming and cleanup in front, then move to the back yard. I don’t have any hills or anything, but my dogs are diggers, so the backyard looks like the moon (if the moon had foot-tall grass).
Any suggestions on what to get? Is rechargeable mower technology just not up to snuff yet?
