Does anyone have an electric push-mower?
What Brand?
Does it work well?
I'm looking at the Black and Decker electric lawn mower and just wondered if they're as good as a gas mower. I know the charge only lasts about an hour but what are it's mowing capabilities?

i had one that was plug-in. i don't recommend that. i felt like i was vacuuming the yard every time i mowed. it cut great though, and was very quiet.

When I was 16 my mum called home and asked me to mow. I have 3 older brothers so that was a first for me. I told her I have no idea how, and she told me the mower's electric so just plug it in and pretend I'm vaccumming the grass with it.
I got the first section done, and then had to double back and do the part behind the gate. Somehow I ran over the cord, cut it, and electrocuted my left arm. 15 years later the skin healed but I have no arm hair there. Luckily the fire dept was 1 block down the street and could get the ambulace there (the garage fuse did not trip!).

Moral of the story: no cords!

I'm still not allowed to touch powertools or weedwackers.
