Staying green while mowing the green

Push mower is powered by batteries.


The " Automower Solar Hybrid " it's not, but this manually operated mower is nonetheless claiming to do its part for the environment by running on electricity instead of gasoline.

Neuton makes a line of emission-free push mowers that are powered by 24-volt batteries and run for 45 to 60 minutes on a charge, according to Uncrate. They could be a decent alternative for those Nervous Nellie homeowners who eschew robo-mowers for fear that they'll be stolen.

Perhaps its most unusual mowing characteristic, however, is that it's silent. Which will be a disappointment to surly teenagers protesting their chore duties.
