I used my cordless trimmer on my first job today, as it's a very small yard in the city. Just not powerful enough to be efficient. It's fine for my own house, where I keep things under control. I've used the thing for several years now - never needed a gas trimmer for what I'm cutting, and I also have never been "on the clock" when doing my own lawn.

When you are being paid to do a job, time is money, and the wrong tool for the job will not make you any money - unless you can sucker those people who were duped/brianwashed/indoctrinated into believing all the "green" nonsense into paying three times the normal rate.

I saved the planet today by running my Toro Super Recycler through some really tall grass and mulching the snot out of it. PULVERIZED! Right back into the earth! Let me know when a cordless mower can come close to that.
I'm SO eco-friendly, it's not even funny.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Very true. Supply and demand will determine our out-come. And, at least in my area, I see the demand and continued growth potential.

It appears as though everyone wants to focus on the initial production of the mower and batteries. The real benefit will be not only the energy saved during the use of the battery powered mower (recharged by solar energy which is free after initial purchase) and the significant reduction in polution output. Zero carbon emissions.

Again, initial investment is low so if it is not a profitable side of the business not much is lost.

Yes, it will mean more physical work but at my age it will do my heart some good.

I do appreciate the comments and reference to other threads and websites. Keep it comming.

Thanks.

I think that may be a big thing in the future Hustler has had a electric zero turn out for 2 years now that is doing well and is even used commercially in a few areas around here for early morning mowing and eco friendly customers.
