It's 2019, if you are serious about it, invest into a 60V or 80V system

40V is only fine for small lawns.

Honestly speaking here, most lawns are getting smaller...

Why is higher voltage better for bigger lawns?

Higher voltage = more power = can drive bigger blades = bigger deck with out bogged down.

I bought the 19" 40v mower 2 years ago, when grass get too tall, I can only mow at half width. Simply not enough power if you don't mow frequently.

Also do not expect the 4ah and 2ah batteries are simply storage rating. Mower runs much slower on 2ah.

I agree with you, when the grass grows to be 12” or more and your whole lawn is like that your own mower will chug and stop. But for those who mow regularly to semi regularly it will work well.

Glad some people are finding this thread useful.

With a brushless dc motor you can get higher torque with higher voltage. Heat is also generated from the current flow and higher voltage requires less current so you wont get throttled as quickly due to over heating of either the motor or controller. Efficiency wise the lost energy is in heat so a higher voltage system should have higher efficiency. This lawn mower has a brush DC motor so it has less torque then a brushless motor. 40V brushless motor would be fine.

Anyone know where to get a second charger? Haven't seen em at Lowe's. Want to sell the mower as I bought a gas one...but need a second charger to sell with it. Would prefer to not buy from US, but seems to be only option. Part is KRC 60-06.

This might be helpful for some out there. Got the 40V last year. 50’ x 110’ lot. Lots of trimming. Cut regularly and had plenty of battery each time. I was very pleased with the product and the job it did.

I have this unit still in box and I debating returning it.

I have a gas trimmer and mower but wouldn't mind using battery if it does the job well. It was purchased with a buy now think later type of deal.

Last month it was 299, plus I had some coupon.

For the people that used it, would the battery be toast after one use? My lot is that big at all and I enjoy mowing once or twice a week.

I need a decent mower, not a toy, so I hope it works well.

Mine is still in the box as well! Haha. Guess I better try it out.

My lawn is only 40x25 feet in the back. Even smaller front.

I just picked one up - my backyard is tiny so I think I will be ok - I have been using a corded one and the cord is so annoying. Do corded ones and 40V ones have similar power?

How did you get the $40 discount? Was there a code of some sort?

There was a banner that popped up on the website - you had to spend over $490 or something and it would remove $40 if you clicked the banner.

Can anyone recommend a good vacuum / blower under 300 ish? Almost everything I’ve come across has awful reviews.
