Hi, I have a bumpy lawn and looking for an electric lawn mower now. If you use an electric one, please give me some review between corded and cordless. Thanks
I was looking into a kinetic electric flywheel log splitter for the same reasons. I never got one. I still split about 3 cords a year with a fiskars splitting axe, blood, sweat and iced tea.I am enjoying no carb maint issues. Oil and lube issues are gone. Fall storage prep is gone. Spring fire up is gone. It is a pleasantly low energy scene. My wife cannot flood and electric motor for example.
That design seem very fast. I would be concerned at first for my fingers I would think.I was looking into a kinetic electric flywheel log splitter for the same reasons. I never got one. I still split about 3 cords a year with a fiskars splitting axe, blood, sweat and iced tea.
The batteries are interesting. More and more common knowledge is being posted on youtube. One vid I found interesting described not the equipment, but rather the battery differences. Since they are now the motor, its worth knowing.ohh thank you guys so much for your help. It will help my decision easier and I still look forward to some new review :>>
This is very cool to know! Thanks for chirping up. I have my first go coming up. Echo 58v 4ah. Almost bet its the cells before a chip.If you ever need advice on battery tech I understand BMS, nicad, lead acid, lithium ion and lithium iron phosphate batteries real well. Like you were saying most of the time a single cell inside the battery fails causing a bad pack. If you want help just PM me, it seems as if you have it under control though.
And thus the discussion about the battery types.The problem with "cordless" these days is, "lithium."
I can't comment on mowers, but my old electric golf trolley, had a lead/acid battery the same size and weight as an average car battery. When these need replacing, (used more frequently and for longer than a mower) they were about £50. My new leccy trolly has a lithium battery, supposedly much longer lasting than a lead/acid one and so they should be, at £200 a pop.
So I'd suggest checking how much a battery replacement costs for a new cordless mower. Keeping in mind of course, the mower and battery can be stuck in the shed for six months at a time.
I've a bog standard Flymo with a cord. It's not a problem, I don't need a cordless mower.
