It’s the weekend. A time to relax, put your feet up, and wind down after a hard week at work. Not on your life. Your neighbors get their mowers out, and they proceed to mow their lawns. Let the noise pollution begin, as you close your windows and turn up the television.
If you are one of those who worry about the level of noise your mower makes, or how much carbon emissions result from the use of it, then you may want to consider buying a rechargeable battery one. And if you really want to display your green credentials, how about a mower which charges via solar panels?
A lawn mower is one of the most vital pieces of garden equipment in the whole range of garden tools. Cordless electric lawn mowers are becoming increasingly popular. I’ve heard of some enthusiasts, who in their desire to go green, have built their own solar powered mowers by converting from gas. Whether that really makes much economic sense or not I’m not too convinced. Getting hold of a used lawnmower might not be too expensive, in fact I know of one which was picked up in a yard sale for just $5. But, it`s when you come to all the additional costs, such as a solar panel (over $100), electric motor (around $300), battery (say $90), and switch, wire, charge controller, meters etc can add up to a further $150. To me it makes more sense just to buy a manufactured battery driven cordless lawn mower now that many have come down in price as they become increasingly popular.
