Man Card Check: Electric Lawnmowers? Anyone tried one?

Seems like the technology might finally be getting up to speed so I am seriously considering pulling the trigger on one. Don’t have a lot of grass and can cut the whole yard in like 15 minutes. It’s just that in my head I’m like, “an electric lawnmower???” Can I really be one of “those people”?

I already have an electric pressure washer with which I have been thrilled. It ALWAYS starts I got it because the gas ones are the least reliable starting machines EVER sold to the general public. Dayum, I cannot even say how much I hate a gas pressure washer, but that’s really another topic.

Im really just tired to death of carburetors, old gas, water in the tank, dried fuel lines, spark plugs, air filters, broken pull cords - you name it. My current mower is toast and so is my weedeater, so it’s either go electric or get the Honda but even they require maintenance.

My neighbor just got a Stihl because he already has their battery powered chainsaw - which is a bad mofo, btw. I REALLY want one of those chainsaws for the car when I go hunting' - BIGLY - but Im not sure the Stihl lawnmower is the best choice compared to the new 80v rigs offered by HD and Lowes.

So insomniac ramblings aside - Does anyone have a lithium battery powered lawnmower? Im particularly interested in either the Stihl, or the Kobalt 80v or Snapper 82 volt. The Kobalt and Snapper are made by the same company, Greenworks, which is made by the same company that also makes tools sold by Stanley, Black and Decker, and Dewalt - chinese but not horrible chinese.
