Rechargeable lawn mower.
The battery powered Neuton lawn mower is for those neighbors who like to mow their lawns at 6 every Saturday morning. (Mr. Gordon, please pay attention. I know you get the magazine.) This thing is so quiet that it makes a vacuum cleaner sound like a jet engine. It comes with a grass bagger and a battery charger. You can also purchase a mulching kit, a trimmer/edger attachment and an extra battery, so you can mow for longer than the estimated one-hour run time. One battery will handle a smaller, city-type lot, but it's certainly not for those sod farms out in the suburbs.
It'll take longer to mow any yard with the Neuton because it only mows a 14-in. wide swath. If you'd like to listen to the birds chirp and let the neighbors sleep, make the $380 investment. Contact the company below for shipping costs.
