So who's taken the plunge and switched to battery power?

So who's taken the plunge and switched to battery power?

Although I still have my old Hayter Harrier 56, I decided this year to to give battery power a try.  Got myself a EGO LM1900E-SP and a 7.5AH battery and fast charger.  Must say it's an absolute joy to use. Light, powerful and just so convenient to use. 

Power is easily on par with a petrol 19" and the collection is just fantastic, it packs the box whether the grass is damp or dry.  Battery life: A single charge is also more than adequate to cut front and back lawn and still has more than 30 percent charge left. the battery as it's a 7.5ah takes around an hour to fully charge.  This mower can also be purchased as kit LM1903E-SP, which comes with a 5.0ah battery and fast charger which takes around 40 minutes to fully charge.

Do I miss the stripes: No I don't at all.  ;)

I have a small Einhell push mower, model GE-CM 33 Li Kit. This will run for around 40 minutes and will cut both my lawns.

Sounds good, and does what you need it to do. And no faffing about with petrol and getting the thing started makes these things so convenient.

Only thing that worries me is the reliability after a year or two, the batteries and other components are pretty pricey to replace. But most are backed up with some fairly decent warranties these days.  Time will tell. ;)
