The new generation of cordless, battery powered lawn mowers aren’t your Daddy’s old mower. These beauties pack power, style and some cool tech into an otherwise boring piece of gear that sits in your garage 99% of the time. Let’s face it, lawn mowers aren’t the sexiest of backyard tools. At least for me, they bring back nightmares of having to mow the yard as a kid when I’d rather be out doing something fun with my friends. If you are going to blow a few hundred bucks on a tool, wouldn’t a nice chain saw or nail gun be a lot more rewarding.
There are a lot of models & options available, so we put together our list of the best battery powered lawn mowers that won’t break the bank, but will still get your lawn looking amazing.
