Hehe, I like it. A small part of the batteries in the EV can be pulled out and used in the mower I'd buy it.
The electric mower I am working on getting some more info on has a 44' deck, runs about 7 mph, So for an hour, I'll race you. If it takes longer, I'll forfeit

Thanks for all the comments. The old gas mower is still working and he's not quite fed up with it yet. When the time comes I hope he'll get an electric.

I didn't expect people to dislike dealing with the cord, but that's definitely a consideration. I know when I vacuum the long cord is something I deal with. But vacuuming involves a lot of back and forth and going around furniture. We have a small tree in the front, I guess you just have to plan around it and learn to be methodical in your pattern.

HA! Good point! It's kind of like other people's children. If my own kids screamed it bothered me but other people's kids, not so much. Maybe our neighbors would be moved to keep up with the "J" family and get nice, quiet electric mowers.
