My opinion is some time in the future it will be against the law to cut grass just like you can't water your lawn in AZ.

Re: Is anyone in here into lithium ion outdoor power equipment?

There are certainly places in the country that will not happen. For example, in some parts of Florida, they have mandated mowing requirements, allegedly to keep reptiles out of neighborhoods. If you don't mow, the city will do it for you and give you a bill and a fine. Personally, I believe that to be a scam, as you can't mow everywhere.

There are times when I wish I could stop mowing altogether here. But, I prefer the look of lawn over woods, at least in the front yard. My back yard is pretty natural (trees, rocks, underbrush, dirt), which is pretty maintenance-free other than cleaning up the sticks and leaves that fall from the trees.

I'd like to see some hard data on the energy requirements to make batteries, use them and dispose or recycle them. Then compare that data to internal combustion engines. My guess is they're aren't better overall.
