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.
Simply plug in and charge with none of the obvious hazards of dealing with a highly combustible liquid. One of the particular complaints made about gas mowers is their starting. The usual method for starting up involves a pull cord mechanism and in some instances can take several attempts before the engine springs to life. Inevitably this can require some considerable effort not to mention frustration particularly with some more erratic starting mowers. Gas mowers tend to be more difficult to start at the beginning of the mowing season (i.e. spring). Cordless lawn mowers have no such starting difficulties.
The starting mechanism varies but normally requires no more than the pulling of a handle to start. There are none of the reliability problems that have come to be associated with starting gas mowers. Another issue relates to emissions. Although the engines of gas powered lawn mowers may be relatively small compared with those of cars they are responsible for significant pollution. In fact some studies suggest that using a gas powered mower for an hour is equivalent to driving for 100 miles in terms of the emissions produced. Cordless lawn mowers do not produce any emissions directly but of course cannot be considered to emission free as the power station producing the electricity to charge it will produce some emissions. Overall however the net contribution to pollution is smaller. Overall unless you have a very large area to mow I think that cordless lawn mowers offer considerable advantages over their gas powered counterparts and should be a consideration for anyone in the market for a new mower.
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).
