    I’m transitioning my business from gas to battery. I’m posting videos on some equipment. Maybe it can help others interested in battery..

    What’s the point? A gallon gas can carry’s more energy cheaper.

    This is the only information I can find on those batteries. Did you actually have to pay that much for one?

    What guage is that deck? Doesn't look thick to me.

    What is your reason for switching to electric? It seems like a half hour per battery isn't quite there if you're using a push mower at several properties. I'm all for the cordless but have found that they're not where they need to be yet for my purposes.

    Are you advertising this as a "green" option or do you do it for sound reasons or do you feel that the batteries have less impact on the environment? Just curious.

    The battery equipment is just all-around more pleasant. No fumes and low noise.

    So fumes and noise are the main reason, i get that, but I know it wouldn't fit my bill.

    Sure 2hrs runtime if you cutting air. If you mulching w/that GW push mower your run time significantly less.

    Problem w/battery stuff is you need 3 batts for any piece of equipment you run if you actually running it commercially and not just put putting about
