Eco-friendly push mowers have been popping up like weeds lately, but what about consumers whose yards are too sprawling for a day’s worth of marching back and forth while pushing a machine? At the recent National Home Show, Driven By Solar invited attendees to learn about the upgrades made to its Recharge Mower, a riding mower that seems to be eco-friendly.
Requiring no oil, no gas, and outputting zero emissions, the Recharge Mower purportedly impressed consumers at the show. “We found an overwhelming number of people were seeking an environmentally responsible solution to their landscaping needs,” said Jim Brody, vice president of sales, in a recent press release. “They were thrilled to learn that the unit requires virtually no maintenance, just how easy it is to operate, that it is extremely quiet and includes an array of safety features.”
Launched in 2009, the Recharge Mower has recently undergone upgrades to render it even more efficient. A brushless drive motor has been installed, decreasing power requirements and improving the unit’s torque. The 5Ah Smart Charger is now cooled by a fan and features a longer cord to make recharging even easier. Additionally, the Grass Deflector allows the Recharge Mower to discharge grass clippings back onto the lawn. Those interested in bagging the clippings can use the attachable Grass Catcher as well.
