Robotic Lawn Mowers Cut Harmful Emissions and Pollutants

Bookmark This Article to Delicious

It is common knowledge that gas powered lawn mowers are serious environmental polluters. It is estimated that 1 hour of lawn mower use equals driving an SUV 100 miles. I have read that lawnmowers contribute up to 5% of the nation�s pollution, even more alarming comparisons and statistics can be found on the internet.

Even if you are not an environmentalist, the price of gas will definitely make you a conservationist. Gas prices continue to climb. Personally, going to the gas station with my little gas can is not a trip of leisure, it has always been a chore.

It costs about $7.00 a year in electricity to mow my yard. I used to spend more than that in one trip to fill up the gas container.

Changing the oil, air filter, and regular maintenance is not what I consider an enjoyable event. John Deere charged me $129 one year to do all that, so it became a semi-annual day of bonding between me and ol� JD.

Maintenance on a robotic lawn mower is minimal. Once a year change the blades, a 5 minute task. Every 3-7 years the battery needs to be changed, another 10 minutes or less. Since robotic lawn mowers do not rust and all the parts are plug-and-play, they could last 10 years or more.

Technology has advanced where batteries can now power automatic lawn mowers to do an effective job. They can mow, go back to the charger by them selves, and go back out again on a schedule without any help all season.

Since it is all electric it doesn�t burn any gas or oil. That means no pollutants so we can all breathe easier. Robotic lawn mowers are also very quiet. They are so quiet that they can be run at night while every one is asleep.

Robotic lawn mowers aren�t going to put John Deere or the local landscaper out of business anytime soon, but one day the do-it-yourselfers are going to be the ones that will be the neighborhood oddity.
