It is getting close to time for me to buy a lawnmower. When I was growing up and cutting my dad's lawn he always had a self-propelled lawnmower. I was very lucky in that I never had to use a push-mower. Lately I have been looking at the electric lawnmowers. I would love to get one because of how quiet they are and because they produce far less polution. So far all of the electric mowers I have seen are not self propelled and I'm wondering if I will regret buying one because of this. I have read some websites that claim that the electric mowers weight far less than gas mowers so the pushing is not a problem.
My lawn will not be large at all... in fact it will be quite small (about 20 feet out from the house on three sides and about 10 feet out on the fourth).
Considering the extension cord for the electric lawnmower, I will have about 11 trees to navigate around, so I am wondering it that will be a fuss.
Has anyone had a chance to compare electric mowers to gas mowers?
