Thanks to everybody who tried to help with our lawnmower last year - I mentioned the lawnmower now, as the grass is growing again, and my husband… I don’t even think he swore, I think he went past swearing. Like to filling the air with Beetle Bailey-style ampersands and such.
So we’re definitely getting a new lawnmower, which I don’t like because we’re working on debt, but I also like not spending Saturday afternoons watching my husband work a Sisyphus machine, so there’s that.
I’m very much interested in rechargeable electrics. The price has definitely gone down in the past few years and the quality seems to have good reviews. We have a fairly small yard with not that much slope. On the other hand, it’s more expensive than a more reliable gas mower; on the other hand, it’s better for the environment and solves that “goddamn it we don’t have gas EITHER” or “the gas might be old?” or “I don’t remember, does it have oil mixed in or not?” problem, too.
I looked in Consumer Reports and don’t see that they’ve done mowers yet this year; they had some in the buying guide from last year and the last year’s reviews. Looked at some Black and Decker models on Amazon, they’re a bit cheaper than some of the top scorers but they have good user reviews. Then there are some that are way cheaper and also have good reviews, but then you think maybe they’re “good for the money” reviews.
We don’t want a cord.
