We all know that gas-powered lawn mowers come with their own set of problems such as, weight, noise, pollution, maintenance, and winter storage. These issues alone may be enough to make you consider an eco-friendly rechargeable mower.

At Green Living Made Easy we love the Neuton Mower. It is loaded with safety features and has a very environmentally conscious design.

What we Love about this Mower:

Safety features begin with the use of a key to even activate the mower. I like this feature because my kids always like to play around the garage area and I have to keep a "heads-up" attitude with equipment that I purchase.

So, a safety switch is just the ticket for young kids. Along with the key you need to move a panel on the handle and squeeze to engage the blade - easy for adults, but difficult for young children.

Another thing we really like is the quietness of the Newton Electric Mower. I mean you still have a spinning blade and the sound of cutting grass with the blade, but you don't feel like you need to wear hearing protection like you should with a gas-powered lawn mower.

I believe this is one of the quietest, if not THE most quiet mower on the market. The Noise Pollution Clearinghouse has rated the Neuton the quietest rotary mower you can buy. The noise level is rated at 80 db.

The Neuton Electric Mower is Lightweight

The Neuton electric mower is extremely light. Combines with the folding handle, it makes for easy folding and storage in the garage.

The accessories available for this mower are really cool! You can add an on-board trimmer and mow and trim at the same time. This trimmer is a string trimmer and will clean up walkway edges, trees and posts around your lawn - all while you mow.

You have 3 options for dealing with the grass clipping from the Neuton. You can use a rear grass bag, the side discharge chute, or you can install the mulching plug (which we prefer) to leave your nutrients in your lawn.

Once you are past the initial purchase price, this mower will begin to save you money right away. With gas prices going up every year, you can operate this mower for about 1/20 the price of a gas mower, including the maintenance.

Neuton Electric Mower - Performance:

The quality of cut in very comparable to a similar sized gas-power unit and I believe there is plenty of power to go through the difficult patches where needed. Cleaning the Neuton Electric Mower is a snap too as you can tip the mower completely on its back without need to worry about gasoline spilling all over the place.

A few of our Dislikes:

While the Neuton Mower is extremely light and moves very easily, I do miss a self-propel mode though. But being as light as it is, that is not a huge issue.

Another thing I dislike is the use of a lead-acid battery. I do prefer the lithium-ion availability of some other mowers.

I would recommend the purchase of another or spare battery for about $100. If you are anything like me, you may forget to charge your mower before you use it and having a spare battery around with a full charge on it would be very helpful. Also, a spare allows you to have double the mowing time available to you.

If you have a fairly large lawn this may not be the mower for you, or any battery operated mower for that matter. I would say if you have a lawn area in the neighborhood of 10,000 to 12,000 square feet - that would be the limit for a battery power mower like this. I dread the thought of getting almost done with my mowing chore and having the battery run out. However, if you have a larger yard and are set.

Overall, we give the Neuton Mower 8.5 out of 10 stars. It's a great green product, it's easy to use, and it works well.
