Battery Run Times
The quoting of battery run times between manufacturers varies greatly, with some brands 'over selling' themselves. We like to be totally honest and quote the worse case scenario.
This mower, when fitted with two 4Ah batteries will give a minimum cutting time of 25 minutes in quite dense grass, but in reality lawns are often cut more frequently which lessens the load on the motor and reduces power consumption.
Most of our customers are reporting run times of between 45minutes and 60 minutes on a single charge in light load situations
