Comment:
I bought this in 2010 because I was tired of my teenage son's complaining the gas mower would not start.<br /><br />After a couple of years, I did have a small issue with the battery charging directly but it still charged when attached to the mower and in 2015, after 5 years, 4 of those in the cold of PA, the battery finally needs to be replaced.<br /><br />A quick search shows Home Depot, where I bought this mower, has the replacement battery for sale for around $100, which is around what I expected.<br /><br />So, it runs well, it starts immediately, it requires almost no maintenance, it last for years, and it is very, very quiet.<br /><br />Buy it.<br /><br />Buy it now.
