    I don't think this is anything new. My neighbor, who is completely non-mechanical, bought a Black and Decker battery mower a few years ago. It works okay, but he goes slow to get a good cut. Also, although his mower is lightweight, the battery is HEAVY, so the mower as a whole is the about the same weight as a gas mower. He's got about 7,000sqft of lawn, and at most he can mow 1/2 of it before having to recharge overnight.

    Don't we already have enough old batteries contaminating our landfills? And what about the dirty, coal-fired, or even worse, nasty nuclear power plants that are in operation to recharge these disposable electrical-powered devices?

    If you want to really "Think Green" then consider one of these beauties!
