Sustainability Post #9 — Electric lawnmower

Filed under: Information — Tags: , — Topher @ 3:12 pm

Well, I have been wanting an electric lawnmower for a while (too much and too course for the reel mower) Battery run, given the distances from house to places that need mowing. And my family in a surprising move, got me one for Christmas last.

It is cool, however, I came home the other day to find my sweetie mowing around the vegetable garden. It is that quiet, and pleasant to use.

So beware all (3) of you who love to mow, an electric mower might just lose you your favorite job.

  1. I think it’s interesting that I have been getting daily calls now from people who have found my web site and want to talk about how they can save energy with solar. They are motivated by dollars and not sense. Why has it taken money to make conservation and sustainability an issue when it is just plain common sense? Guy
