    Battery Powered Lawn Mowers-Chime in Knuckleheads

    I don't even know why I bother asking you Neanderthal Fossil Fuel Loving Climate Change Denying Sumbetches but I will anyway.

    Does anyone have a Battery Powered Lawn Mower? If so, what do you recommend?

    While Slippy Lodge is approx 30 Acres and requires a tractor for bush-hoggin' etc, the immediate grass around the house is less than 2000 SQ FT and shrinking as I add new raised beds for veggies every year or so.

    But, Mrs S wants to keep SOME grass and everyone knows little princess gets what she wants...

    So last time I mowed it was a bit wet and my grass is healthy and thick and I noticed my Heavy-Assed 15+year old Craftsman Self Propelled Lawn Mower is struggling and finally the heavy wet grass is too much for the engine and it starts to smoke and sputter and damn if it doesn't up and freakin die on me!

    I give it the normal maintenance and replacement checks to make sure and tear it apart but after messing with it for a few days, I pronounce it DOA.

    I've been saying I'm done with Ethanol gas and I try and put Ethanol Free in my small engines but for whatever reason I just cannot bear the thought of putting another dime into the purchase/maintenance and repair of internal combustion small gas engines! ...

    So, any advice on Electric Battery Powered Lawn Mowers? Some of them have descent reviews but I just don't have any experience with them. PS All of my other lawn gas engines are STIHL and most are over 15 years old...hopefull they will last...

    1940 9N Ford, runs 8 gallons of shit fuel ,all day mowing ,3' goldenrods

    1972 2000 Ford, harder to work on than than the 9N but user friendly.

    Howse 5ft brush hog, 30 years young. Has only used grease every run. Does the farm every year X2 or X3

    Ford 501 sickle bar. See Howse above.

    1972 Ford/Jocobsen Kohler K321 LGT14 42" deck. Broke steering once, then only wear items. Simple to work on like the 9N

    Husqvarna 6.5 briggs. PITA to start when warm. Good mower otherwise

    Old Craftsman ???Hp it runs and cuts, better than newer Husky.

    Two push reel mowers. Don't let the grass get big, or have a lot to do.

    Weed wackers. Husky L326 has been fine 20 years, A1 O.K. . A freebie Homlesslite works on the other place, but a PITA compared to the Husky.

    My Advice, get a couple goats/sheep, before eletricrap.



    warningGoats/sheep might attract Muslims to Slippy ranch

    Slip, I've got some really valuable insight for ya ….. Don't run over the damn cord, my experience is it pisses everybody off.

    Back when I was a young 'un, my grandmother had the bright idea to get her an electric lawn mower. I volunteered to give it a go (I must have been about 9 or 10, and proudly wearing my "Everybody bugs Me" sweatshirt) and I wasn't 10 minutes into mowing until I cut the cord (No …. I'm not talking about cable tv). Next, was the pissin' everybody off part.

    So, my advice is screw the "Go Green" nonsense and run down to your local hardware or lumber yard and buy ya a good mower. Don't forget the ethanol free gas.

    Me? I ride my zero turn mower and grin, I only wish I still had that darn sweatshirt.

    Go get you a 72 inch diesel Kubota zero turn, . . .

    You ain't young enough to wear it out, . . . change the oil every 50 hours, . . . change the blades in the early fall.

    You'll never regret it.

    Besides that, . . . when you are taking your dirt nap, . . . the widow and the kids can sell the darn thing for darn near what you paid for it.

    Battery mowers are for French wine sipping, . . . water color painting, . . . girly boys who generally speak like that British freak that plays the piano and wears stupid looking glasses.

    May God bless,

    Wife cuts the grass, and nothing is too good for her. Husqvarna 42" rider, John Deere electric start self propelled "push" mower for the edges.

    Horse does the fine work.

    Yer lookin' at this problem from the wrong direction, Slip my friend.
