Toro 21” 60V Battery Personal Pace Super Recycler lawn mower review – It’s deja vu, all over again

REVIEW – A few years ago, I bought—and really liked—the TORO Super-Recycler gas mower. Then I killed it. In a move too stupid to admit in public, I neglected to check the oil after a year of use. One day as I was pulling the string, it seized—never to start again. I  had to revert …

SnapFresh Cordless Lawn Mower review – not enough power

REVIEW – In the last year I’ve been transitioning to battery-powered tools for working in my yard.  After I reviewed WORX’s cordless fan, I purchased their weed eater.  SnapFresh then sent me their leaf blower and their hedge trimmer, both of which I liked.  The most recent lawn tool that I’ve been testing is a …

Greenworks 2 x 24V (48V) 17″ Brushless Lawn Mower and Drill review – a gateway into the Greenworks ecosystem

REVIEW – Most of us have spent our entire lives using gasoline or corded electric lawn tools. I had infamously bad gas lawnmowers when I was a kid, where you had to yank the starter cord 10 or more times with all your kid-strength to get it going, then you had the hassle of mixing …

WORX 20″ 3-in-1 cordless lawnmower review

WORX 20V GT Revolution Trimmer/Edger/Mini-Mower review

REVIEW – I’ve been a homeowner since 1989, but I have never used a weed eater to trim around trees or the edges of sidewalks. How can this be you ask? I’ve always had problems starting pull string style equipment because I have crummy shoulders and not enough upper body strength. So Jeanne has done …
