we replaced our 2012 AC electric mower with new 2018 20 in. 40-Volt Brushless Lithium-Ion Cordless Battery Walk Behind Push Lawn Mower - was on sale for mothers day,

the old AC mower has a sharpened blade , but the paint on the underside failed and grass would stick to it. I was going to sandblast then repaint it, wife said save your time and get a new cordless. i was going to do the first spring mow with the old AC one then the RYOBI could take over. the 8" damp grass kept sticking to old mower and I was cutting in 3 passes. Wife got the RYOBI out it was set on middle setting and did a doughnut around me and walked away. I got the hint, work smart first, then hard.

The RYOBI with bag on is like a vacuum - the catch bag is packed. one charge lasts us 2-3 mows are yards 25 x 30 ft and 15 x 35 ft

a neighbor stopped by and took the old mower, he has some moss to mow. ;0)
