Using an electric push mower over their gas guzzling counterparts previously involved some serious power and range tradeoffs for homeowners. The Worx 788 cordless electric lawn mower ($430) changes the game thanks to a high capacity 36V PowerTank battery, which eliminates the need for pesky extension cords and allows the 19-inch mower to cut up to 18,000 sq. feet on a single charge. That should more than satisfy the weekly needs of casual landscape architects — which is a good thing considering the removable battery requires a good 16 hours of beauty sleep to charge. An IntelliCut dial also allows users to easily switch between a normal “quiet” setting and a beefier “power” mode for mauling thicker brush. Its mowing height can be adjusted between 1.5 and 3.5 inches, while a fold-able handle helps leave room in the garage for your more important toys.
