Default Clean air lawn care is using neuton lawn mowers

I just got an update of photos from Clean Air Lawn Care and they have a real nice set up.

They are using neuton electric lawn mowers.

What do you think of this?

I've never heard of Neuton? Do they make higher quality stuff?

The only battery mowers I've ever seen are the Black and Decker pieces of junk they sell at Home Depot.

While I think the battery powered equipment is very catchy, I have an issue with them. They are great for being quiet, but the whole "clean air" thing is misleading. The majority of electricity is produced by coal which is very poluting. So every time you charge the battery, you are using electricity provided by burning coal.
Probably not a big deal to some people, but I would feel as if I was cheating my customers who hired me for the "clean air".

Just a thought off the top of my head, thats all.

Never realy thought of that , good point though.
I guess the only way to realy have clean air mowing, is to mow with manual mowers but who wants to do that right.

I used a reel mower a few times when I was a kid. Man that was a pain. They sell them at home depot and such, but I wonder if they work any better then they used too. Im sure the one I used was all rusty and dull as hell!

It would be neat if they had solar panels at their building and could use them to recharge the batteries for the mowers.

That would be an idea. I wonder if it would be cost effective. I know the cost of solar panels are coming down. Maybe in the near future, they will be more affordable for more people. What if you could use wind power on top of your building to charge your batteries. Of course it wouldnt work for everyone, but some people may be able to do it. Especially in areas like Chicago.

looks like he has a solar panel mounted to the roof of his truck. I wonder if thats how he is recharging his batteries?

I dont think I would be up for pushing a 22" mower around someones lawn though. I wonder how many lawns he is doing on a daily basis using this type of mower? I really dont see how this business model will bring him profits though.
