Battery Powered Mowing & Lawn Maintenance
Tired of the never-ending drone of gas mowers, the scream of string trimmers, and the deafening roar of the blowers, not to mention the ozone-depleting toxic gas and oil fumes. Want to do your part to reduce noise pollution and help stop climate change?
Electric or battery powered lawn care equipment could be the right choice for you.
Battery powered electric machinery for lawn maintenance has come a long way since its introduction. Today’s equipment has the runtime most homeowners need and then some, fast recharge time, and best of all their performance is comparable to their loud toxic smoke spewing gas equivalent!
These machines are up to 75% quieter than their gas equivalents.
Tested and proven by CleanAir LawnCare for two seasons giving you professional, quiet , non-polluting reliable service.
At CleanAir LawnCare, we have prevented an estimated 8600 lbs. of toxic carbon emissions from being emitted into our planet’s atmosphere since 2017 using electric equipment and we are just a small company. Just think about all the lawn contractors you see with fleets of mowers blowers and string trimmers. You have to wonder how much damage they are causing.
Electric or battery powered equipment represents an alternative way of keeping your lawn looking great with the added safety of no dangerous fumes or messy gas and oil cans, no mixing. And battery powered mowers produce ZERO of the ozone depleting emissions of their gasoline counterparts.

It’s commonly reported that two-cycle gas lawn mowers are inefficient and release 25-30 percent of their mixture of oil and gas unburned into the air (People Powered Machines). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that over 17 million gallons of fuel (mostly gasoline) are spilled each year while refueling lawn equipment. That’s more than all the oil spilled by the Exxon Valdez, in the Gulf of Alaska!
Gasoline-powered lawn mowers emit huge amounts of pollution but using solar powered machinery can reduce your carbon footprint AND leave you with a great looking yard…and leave your grandchildren a planet they can still live on. And if you want to go really green, using a push mower instead of a power mower helps to reduce CO2 by over 80 lbs. a year according to the EPA.
Consumer Reports (https://www.consumerreports.org/lawn-mowers-and-tractors/how-green-are-electric-lawn-mowers/) cites the pros and cons of electric mowers saying: “Electric mowers are vastly preferable to gas models because they generate no tailpipe emissions. Compared with gas engines, which emit carbon monoxide and unburned hydrocarbons, electrics offer a lot of public-health benefits.”
Electric mowers are quieter than gas, operating at an average 75 decibels. That’s about the same noise level as a regular conversation. Gas-powered mowers operate at around 90 decibels, a noise level that requires ear protection.
But how well do they do the job?
An electric mower still gives you the options to mulch, bag, or use the side-discharge chute when mowing. Mowing height is fully adjustable (remember, keep your mower higher than 3 inches for a healthier lawn) and electric mowers are easier to maintain and start, lighter, and more fun to use than their gas counterparts.
A quality electric mower will last the average homeowner between 8-10 years and require a new battery after about 5 years. It’s a good idea to just purchase a second battery when you buy a mower to have one on hand for quick charges.
Here are five things to consider when deciding to purchase an electric mower:
- How big is your lawn? The average mower’s normal battery life will allow you to mow around a half an acre or more at a time. If your lawn is bigger than that, you may need to buy a second battery or allow recharging time to finish the job.
- What is your yard like? Do you have hills and valleys? Rough and bare spots? Electric mowers function at peak capacity on the average yard flat yard.
- How long does it take to mow your lawn? If it normally takes you under 30 minutes to mow, a battery powered mower will certainly do the trick. Run times range from 30-60 minutes for the average mower; recharging or a second battery will be needed for larger areas.
- What features do you need? If you’re looking for easy to push, easy starting, and compact design, a battery powered mower offers all three. They are traditionally lighter than gas powered mowers and store easily since there is no gas/oil leakage.
- What’s your budget? Of course, the more features you get, the more costly your mower will be. Decide what you NEED versus what you only WANT in a mower before you make the purchase.
So when you’re ready to make the move to a new mower, maybe it’s time to consider what an electric mower can do for you. Or better yet, what CleanAir LawnCare can do for you with the same planet-saving energy conservation!
Just think…no more lugging heavy gas cans and sloshing fuel around in your car…we’ll get the job done with no hassle AND protect the planet on your behalf.
