While not quite a renovation (unless one renovates the lawn every week when one uses the lawn mower
) I was curious if anyone has any experience with a solar charged brushless electric lawn mower?
I don't understand solar stuff or electrical stuff but lots of y'all seem to by the posts in this ara of the forum.
We recently purchased the new solar charged lawn mower which is being sold at a few retail outlets in the Boston & Seattle areas as well as throughout Canada that uses a solar charging station so the mower is completely off grid.
We chose the 19 inch model (also comes in a 21 inch model), is self propelled, etc., etc., (i.e. does all the stuff a mower can or should). The solar charging station was easier to install than I thought and once the batteries become fully charged in the next day or two we'll have our first test run. We have started to write some articles in our blog with some pictures,etc. which you can view here using this link to the first article
But, have I gotten myself into a mess? Is this brushless motor technology for real and if so, which is better, brushless or a brush type of motor for an electric lawn mower?
As well, what about the solar charging station? How long do those panels actually last? If I lay it horizontal (which I have done) could it be damaged by a hail storm or a strong rain storm?
Thanks for your experinces,
