In the past, rechargeable cordless mowers were considered to be inferior machines to their petrol or electric counterparts, and both heavy and cumbersome. This was chiefly down to the lead acid batteries used in the machines – modified car batteries with all of the inherent maintenance problems associated with them. Thankfully, the days of heavy, leaking batteries are in the distant past with the advent of lithium-ion technology. These new batteries (often referred to as Li-ion for brevity) are transforming the way we can operate garden machinery, and in particular, lawnmowers — making them light-weight, manoeuvrable and able to work continuously when more than one battery is in use.
For more complex gardens, the wires of an electric lawnmower may well get snagged on shrubbery, or the cable simply won’t be long enough to cope with the shape of your lawn. These machines are much easier for mowing both front and back gardens without easily accessible power supplies. The cordless mower offers complete freedom as well as all the benefits you would expect with a corded electric option. These environmentally friendly machines are quiet, lightweight, and easy to store and maintain making them perfect for anyone who wants to keep mowing the lawn simple.
