    (I do actually have a tramp. The girls spend most of the day in summer bouncing on it. The Google image predates us buying the house)

    I bought Ryobi cordless drill and flashlight relatively early. But by the time the rechargable batteries were worn out and needed to be replaced, Ryobi had changed the design and a replacement battery was more expensive than buying a new drill with the new style battery. I had hoped I would buy additional tools and use the same set of batteries. Planned obsolescence.

    EGGzackly - same with my Milwaukee cordless set - drill, reciprocating saw, flashlight, circular saw.... I'm HOPING this is different because Ryobi is building such an extensive (more than 50) tool collection on this same technology, and the same charger works for several different types of One+ batteries.

    I'm buying several "sets", which include 2 batteries each and a charger, so I'll have chargers at various locations, PLUS extra batteries --- the "sets" are almost as cheap as buying ONE individual battery.

    Has anyone suggested the "Original" Cordless Mower? I actually own something similar... (batteries not included)

    Those have cords, but you'll probably need an extension cord.

    My reason for this is first of all our current petrol lawnmower could well be older than me and the aluminium chassis is starting to crack badly. The second is I could shortly be needing to have surgery on my wrist which will mean 6 months in plaster, which in turn means that Mine Beloved will have to be mowing the lawn, and she doesn't want to be dealing with a pull-start engine, plus the weight of a petrol motor (and the electronic start is about NZ$1000)

    SO my main question is, has anyone here had any experience with cordless mowers?
    I've had this one for about a year, now, and it works great. I use this one for the 'nicer' grass in the front yard and around the pool, and my 54" zero turn for the back yard and pasture. Mower seems to have plenty of power, and the battery lasts long enough -- about the time it's winding down, so am I.
