Anyone have any experience with them? I moved from mowing 4ish acres of shitty terrain lawn with a riding mower to an in town home with a much smaller backyard and like the idea of not having to deal with mixing gas, carbs, etc.

I sold the Husqvarna ones from time to time 18 years ago when I was a full line dealer.



Absolutely trouble free and worth every penny. If my HOA didn't take care of the grass, I'd have one right now.

You will go from mixing a little bottle of 2 stroke oil to replacing $150-$200 batteries every couple of years. Pick you poison.  I did and went right back to gas mowers.

Love my Worx.  Battery pack is a cube with a handle that pops into the lightweight mower and pops out. It takes about 12 hours to recharge.

I mow for exercise, fresh air, and sunlight. I bought an extra battery pack, and found out that I poop out quicker than the batteries do. But I got a third, so when I am going on vacation, I can mow the whole lawn in a single session.

The battery packs can be opened up. They hold two motorcycle type batteries, which any battery shop can replace for you every few years.  

No oils, no fuels to store. No rip cords.  No prepping for the winter.  Just sharpen or replace the blade every couple of years. Very safe. When you let go of the handle, it turns itself off.

My Worx mower battery pack just contains two motorcycle starter batteries. You could even change them out yourself if you have a screwdriver.  ?Motorcycle batteries cost $100 a piece?

Are any battery operated mowers self-propelled?

Bought an EGO from Home Depot last year. More than I wanted to spend but it is *so* nice to use. Light enough to manhandle easily, moves at *my* pace, folds into a small space, battery lasts more than long enough for my small yard, battery recharges quickly, quiet enough that I can mow literally 24/7 w/o hearing protection or bothering the neighbors (it even has headlights!), no gas/oil/air filter/spark plug to worry about. I don't like yard work to being with but the EGO makes it tolerable for me.
