We use sealed lead acid batteries which have an over 97% recycling rate as this is an established infrastructure, and 98% of the battery itself is fully recyclable (lead, plastic, etc). Just as a benchmark, in the US only 55% of aluminum soft drink cans are recycled and 26% for glass bottles or even car tires

How do I store the batteries during the winter?
Never leave batteries in temperatures below 0° Celsius/32° Fahrenheit. Batteries will freeze and will be damaged which will result in less operation time next time they are used. The batteries are easily accessible to allow easy removal and storage.

How often should I charge the battery?
Leave batteries on charger at all times when not in use. For safety reasons and convenience, it is recommended to always leave the batteries on the charger ready for the next time you will use your unit.
Our lead acid batteries have no memory so you can use them as little or as much as needed and place them back on the charger ready for the next time you mow your lawn.

Does the self-propelled feature use up a lot of battery power?
The self-propelled function is belt driven to minimize friction loss and maximize battery performance and reliability. The less effort it takes to power the wheels, the longer the batteries will last!
