The 21st century arrives at Grouch estates

I gave the new battery powered lawn mower a try on Saturday.  No more priming and yanking, priming and yanking to get the bloody gas engine lawn mower started.  With this thing you push a button, pull up on the safety handle and off you go!   The battery lasted long enough to cut both the front and back yard but it was in the yellow zone when I finished.  The instruction manual says that after the first couple of uses and recharges the battery's useful life will be greater.  I guess it doesn't matter as long as it has enough juice to finish the yard at Grouch estates.

Young daughter took a picture of me and the ultra modern lawn mower in action.

  1. Wow! I wish I had had one of those when I had my house. I could usually start the lawnmower at the beginning of the grass cutting session, but I'd always have to stop and tend to Laura at some point, and would then be too tired to restart the lawnmower. Once I was so frustrated that it reduced me to tears. They should advertise the battery powered ones as gas AND tear free!
