Mowers have come a long way in the last few years. From the chugging petrol motorized ones to the electrically powered. We are focusing on the new kid on the lawn, the one that uses a battery and needs no cord. These cordless lawnmowers are not only environmentally friendly but work in all weather conditions and are clean and effective at mowing.
Here’s our pick of the bunch:
