Will it destroy the industry, no
Will it change the industry, yes
Owners and operators will have to be conservative. Battery option equipment is the waive of the future. Personally I'm all for it. Less fuel, less maintenance, less down time with battery operated.
A bigger concern is if fuel would jump up, we would increase pricing....so would every other service in every industry. So the guy that owns a restraunt now has all his bills double (not just mowing). So he raises prices and at some point people will not want to eat out as much....restraunt goes under, and you loose a client. This would happen in every industry
It's the low ballets that will kill this industry
