Which electric lawnmower to buy?

Hey, gas one conked out, looking for advice for a battery powered lawnmower. I have dewalt tools so I was looking at the $578 one that has two 10ah batteries, seems good. However I don't use my tools often and honestly it might not matter if I use a different battery.

Any advice? Thanks.

EGO is the best, they make quality tools and their battery thermal management system is very intuitive.

GreenWorks is a more budget friendly option while still making good products.



FYI, a more relevant forum is the Home and Garden section.

Ive been researching on electric mowers since the weekend and theres a common denominator in all of them:

All these companies suck at warranty claims and it doesnt matter which brand including the super expensive Ego +. Horror stories of months without having a mower, so you might as well buy a spare.

For this reason Im now strongly considering gas mowers because theyre mostly serviceable, although Im really not liking the idea of inhaling the fumes from it (original reason why Im going electric)

Thanks all.

Despite all this, and because my yard isn't very complicated, I ordered the DeWalt mower for $578 that comes with two 10ah batteries that are compatible with all my power tools. As long as it does a decent job I will be happy, and the cross-compatibility of the batteries will be great.
