Looking for a lawn mower and trimmer

I am in the market for a new lawn mower and a trimmer. Trying to stay within a budget and not looking to spend more than $600 all in. I would prefer a self-propelled, cordless option but all suggestions are welcome.

If on a budget ... the RYOBI 40V Lithium Ion Electric Cordless Mower and String Trimmer Combo Kit from Home Depot for $399 plus taxes is a decent option.

I have been using an old school Simpson-Sears Craftsman lawnmower since the 1980s ... and it is still working great.


And I recently replaced my Trimmer/Edger with the same Toro. Sold off the old one for $55 (bought it 6 years ago for $56+HST) on Kijiji and purchased a brand new one from Home Depot.


I never worried about running a cord around. It fairly easy and simple (provided you know how to use it ... been doing so since the 1980s).

Can't do gas powered because I cant stand the smell of burning gas.

Don't really trust cordless because I don't believe in the battery life. Battery powered will never have as much power as corded because the battery loses power during usage.

My current setup is a cub cadet mower and an echo trimmer. Both have been great for the last few years!
