Compared to traditional gas-powered lawn equipment, electric counterparts boast several advantages.
- Longer life span
- Easier maintenance
- Less noise pollution
- Less carbon dioxide emissions
- Power plants are more efficient than gas-powered lawn mowers, yielding lower emissions for electric mowers.
- Using a gas-powered leaf blower for just a half hour produces about the same amount of emissions as driving a big pick-up truck 3,900 miles, according to a study from Edmunds.1
- Electric lawn equipment is ideal for smaller yards (less than a half-acre in size).
