Most home owners with electric lawn mowers say the primary reason for choosing electric was environmental consciousness. Experts say that mowing your lawn for about an hour with a regular gas powered mower causes more air pollution than driving a car for 150 miles. Electric mowers use substantially less energy to operate so there is much less drain on the environment. Another benefit to having an electric lawn mower versus gas run is that you wont have to worry about pulling away on a cord to get it started. Electric mowers are turned on with the push of a button.
One reviewer mentioned that he could hear the birds singing above the low sound from his electric lawn mower. The traditional spark plug is not present with this lawn mower and neither is the need to keep an eye on gas levels for refilling at the most inconvenient places. To bag or not to bag that is the question! Yes you may choose to collect lawn clippings in the bag that is included with the electric lawn mowers or to let those clippings naturally mulch and fertilize your lawn. This is both good for the environment as well as your billfold since you wont need to purchase fertilizers that may be unhealthy for humans as well as pets.
Cordless lawn mowers are limited by how long they can run before the battery charge runs out - generally the largest range is a third of an acre from a single charge. However you can increase the range by buying a model where you can remove the battery and then buy a second battery. The power of gas mowers tends to be greater than electric mowers (either corded or cordless) so if you have particularly tricky areas then this may be a consideration for you. However cordless lawn mowers have a number of advantages. The most obvious one being that there are no messy gas or oil cans to deal with.
A fully charged Toro 20360 mower is able to cover up to 10000 square feet of lawn. Weighing only 77 pounds the mower is lighter than other cordless mowers of the same class. Some of the advantages you can get by purchasing this particular model include safe and easy use thanks to the easy two-step operator control easy to charge e-Cycler battery with two-color LED charging indicator and a two-year manufacturers warranty which include the maintenance for the mower as well as the battery. On the other hand for commercial or large scale use you will need more advanced tools and equipments. Golf courses sports fields and grounds (e.g. soccer field football field tennis field etc) and other commercial landscapes need more than one type of lawn mower. For this purpose Toro offers a series of commercial lawn mowers which include the ToroReelmaster series (fairway mowers) Toro Groundsmaster series (rough mowers) and Toro Greensmaster series (walk and riding greens mowers).
