Electric lawnmowers: solid engineering or eco-hippie crock?
As I'm facing the prospect of mowing my first lawn since I had to mow my parents' decades ago, I'm looking into lawnmowers. The prospect of an electric (possibly corded, possibly rechargeable) appeals to me for a few reasons: no petrol (petrol motors are, generally, more complex devices and more prone to failures than pure electric), less noise (I hate loud mowers), and price (the electric ones seem to be reasonably cheap and lightweight).
The question is... are electric mowers actually any GOOD? Does anyone have experience with them that he/she can share?
