Bat­tery mowers

Amateur Gardening - - Your Letters -

I READ the let­ter (AG, 18 Fe­bru­ary) about the mer­its of dif­fer­ent types of mower. Tim Bill­brough was stat­ing that elec­tric lawn­mow­ers are good, which they are, but I sug­gest every­one con­sid­ers bat­tery-op­er­ated mod­els.

So when my old elec­tric mower broke, I bought a bat­tery lawn­mower. It’s great – no ca­bles to ham­per you, the bat­tery lasts for the whole of the 30ft and 40ft lawns, and the best thing is the new mower is slightly lighter than the old one and has made cut­ting the lawn a plea­sure again.

Wendy says AG’s Ed­i­tor has found the new lithium-ion ma­chines much bet­ter than bat­tery mod­els of the past – and much lighter and less trou­ble than petrol. He found the bat­tery gave four cuts be­fore need­ing a re-charge.

“The mower has made cut­ting the lawn a plea­sure,” says Anne
