Our cordless electric mowers/yard tools came well before the 'electric' car. Normally you wouldn't drive your car sucking fumes off the exhaust (we can hope) but you do it with your gasoline yard equipment? Not here, no sir.I used to be able to use that line - until I switched to a battery mower!
Nice little mod.Had my B&D 36v self-propelled electric mower for over 3 years now. Bought it for $50 on craigslist. I replaced the sealed lead battery(ies) at the time. It was more than enough to mow my lawn. This fall the battery was starting to barely get the job done. So over the holidays I did a little conversion to Lithium. This way I can still use the old sealed lead battery and have another as just enough back up.
So I used Ryobi 18v lithium batteries paired together (see pictures). Together they give me about 144 watts compared to the old battery that was closer to 400 watts. Eventually I will just use the Lithium batteries as I have a 6 port charger. Just have to switch batteries about 1/3 of the way through.
