Has anyone here have a cordless mower? If so what are your experiences with them and what brand do you have? I only intend to be using it for areas that my rider is unable to get to. I’m anal about keeping my grass short so it won’t be used for heavy use. Any advice will be helpful.

My brother had one for a while, it lasted three years. It worked well for small jobs, but tended to get hot if he pushed the workload too much. Nothing like the power of gas. And they do cut their own cords if you let ‘em. I’d think your intended useage should be okay.

I have a colleague that really likes his. He cuts around the property with the cordless mower then mows the inside with a reel mower. It’s amazing how much nicer the lawn looks where the reel cuts but I think that’s simply a function of the reels cutting so cleanly. I think any mower with a sharp blade will work about the same. I don’t recall him complaining about the battery life and his yard is decent size.

Nomad, that’s one of the reasons for wanting the cordless and to avoid dragging a cord around.

Al, do you know if he had the 24 volt or 36 volt. Yeah your right the reel style does have a better cut to them.

My eyes see “cordless”, but my brain decided it said “electric”. Dang, getting senile.

The one I’ve decided on is on back order till June and is a GreenWorks model 24 volt 18” cut self propelled mower. It has a 4 year warranty on the mower and a 1 year warranty on the battery.

I’ve had the Black & Decker 24V for 11 years. We live on a 1/4 acre lot, and it works great.

When I replace it, it will be the B&D 36V, self propelled mower (unless there is a better self propelled mower when I’m in the market).
