Electric Mower Roundup: the only Thing Roaring Is the Dandelions
Electric Mower Roundup: The only thing roaring is the dandelions
Though my personal approach to lawn mowing involves letting the English ivy choke out all the grass, I understand the impetus for a lush carpet of perfectly-manicured fescue. (For starters, croquet is less than ideal on the ivy; same with barbecues and Red Rover matches.) But maintaining a placid, grassy yard shouldn’t have to mean firing up the roaring, fuel-guzzling beast known as gas-powered lawn mower. Greener (often quieter, frequently cuter) machines come in earth-sensitive electric varieties.
The Black & Decker Lawn Hog ($215) is a tiny titan. Weighing in at a mere 52 pounds (that’s about as much as one of those super-sized bags of dog chow), this mower possesses a 12-amp motor and cuts a 19-inch path. A one-lever adjustment system raises or lowers all four wheels for a 1 1/4 inch to a 3 1/2 inch cutting height, and a rear-attached mulching bag collects clippings for disposal or composting. Want to mulch the lawn as you go? Simply leave the bag off and the trimmings drop to the ground. The Lawn Hog runs by electricity - in this case that means a 100-foot plug-in cord. Users have to be careful not to run over said cord, but the perks include no gas, oil or tune-ups.
