Battery Mower

E0666 250 Battery Mower
As I try and wrestle with my lawn each weekend. The sprinkler situation, the water shortage etc… I saw this little gem which I see has gotten some great reviews.

The Neuton

The Neuton CE 6.2 Mower gives you the powerful performance of a gas mower with convenience of battery technology. There is no gas or oil to spill and no engine emissions to pollute the air.

This is the most powerful mower with a removable, rechargeable battery you can buy. With 360 watt-hours of battery energy, it has plenty of power to mow through even tall, wet grass.

Would you buy one of these?

I like the idea of no cord. In fact I have run over quite a few cords. Also the gas ones are so noisy and dirty.
