Gasless, but not gutless. Quiet, but not shy. Advances in battery technology have come a long way in recent years. More power is now being packed into batteries so your mower can speedily deliver a knock-out punch to your lawn. Have you considered upgrading your conventional, gas-burning mower with a new electric or battery-powered option? Doing so could mean a 20% incentive on any new battery-powered or corded electric lawn mower could be coming your way!

Making the switch also has these advantages:

  • Lower energy costs – depending on how often you mow, electric powered mowers will cost about $15 per year in electricity. Gas mowers use approximately $30 of gasoline.
  • Less maintenance – no spark plugs, air filters, fuel filters, or oil change.
  • Quieter operation – electric mowers create up to 75 decibels of sound, similar to a washing machine. Gasoline mowers can exceed 95 decibels, comparable to a motorcycle on the highway.
  • Eco-friendly – no toxic gas emissions from nitrogen oxides, airborne particulates, carbon monoxide, or carbon dioxide

This incentive also applies to:

  • Electric Chainsaws
  • Electric Tillers
  • Electric Snowblowers
