    basically you can't go all electric unless all you mow are cookie cutter lawns that take 30min or less.

    i have some yards that are 2 1/2-3 acres. it would never work for me.

    Even doing small lawns wouldn't the battery go dead by the end of the day?

    no. you could do 2 yards on a single charge and i'm sure you would have backup batteries. you could charge batteries in the trailer while you were using the other backup batteries. just keep alternating them all day.

    i'm sure you would have more than one set of backup batteries anyways if you were taking the electric approach. you would probably have 10 batteries for each mower.

    not really. it's still cheaper than buying a 10k ztr mower, $500 blower, $300 trimmer, $300 edger, etc.

    those electric pushmowers are only $400 each.

    alot faster to be honest. it takes a few seconds to swap out batteries. alot faster than filling up with gas.

    Not really cheaper considering how much work you have to turn down. Even average lawns will take 5times longer. There went the time and money saved in gas
