Mowing Equipment

We visited a local business (not big box) and have kind of settled on an EGO self propelled 56 volt mower for $800 and an Echo 58 volt multitool trimmer/edger that will also accept a hedge trimmer and a blower attachment for $340. Very nice high end units.

The trimmer is part of Echo's "professional" product line and they assure me it will do the job. Being able to add a blower and a hedge trimmer is a bonus.

We went with rechargeable over gas for several reasons. Ease of use is the biggest with no concerns of gas, gas mixing, fuel stabilizers, fuel storage, tune-ups, etc. With the rechargeable units, we just have to keep the batteries charged.


  1. sounds like some nice equipment to maintain your property, have fun.

  2. Very high end electric tools. Still might need an extra battery.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. Friends of ours in San Antonio had an electric mower. Back then you had to maunever with a very long extension cord. Worked great, low noise level and like you said, no fuel, mixing or tune ups. Wish I had one.

  4. Most interesting. Keep us posted on the outcome.
