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.
