However, the machines last only 10 years. It's not the engine or the blade that wears out, but rather all the switches and fittings. Once the plastic starts to crack I can try glue or duct tape but the writing is on the wall.
I almost went for a battery powered lawnmower but balked with the manufacturer's run time at only 45 minutes. That must stand for the best possible result -- not the real-world test.
Keeping it real! Stoke.
