Time to buy a new mower (threw part of piston rod/crankshaft through the side of the engine on current mower). I've often been frustrated with carburators on gas mowers. The annual winter stretch without use is hard them. So I was wondering if anyone has any experience with electric lawnmowers. I think I'd prefer a corded model (don't want to trade carburator problems for battery problems). I need to decide soon, the grass will need cutting again in a few days. (aside. winter may have its downsides. One thing I do like about winter is the grass don't grow).
