We’re living in the golden age of cordless lawn mowers. Not long ago, these quiet, smokeless cutters had anemic batteries that made you wish you were mowing with gas.
Today, you can get about an hour—or even more—per charge. Here are three that can make one item on your to-do list a little easier.
RUN TIME: 45 MINS.
The 40-volt battery in this 20-inch-wide mower powers an efficient brushless motor and has load-sensing technology to maximize performance. Plus, it comes at a nice price.
