Will check again...

I think this is the one, since I replied in it.

Thanks in advance

Only part of my yard is sodded and irrigated so the amount that has to be cut in the summertime is small, relatively speaking. I bought this cordless electric mower at Home Depot a couple of years ago. This will be my third summer using it and I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Will never go back to a gas mower.

I have used a reel mower since 1959. I would recommend it for small yards especially because of the fine cut.

My next mower will be a cordless.  I have a moderate size lot for a city.  It takes an hour to mow so I figure battery next time; don't have to worry about it starting in the spring.

Always use the right tool for the job.

Those things are great for a small yard.

Late to the party...but for something that small, i agree that a reel mower is the way to go. Takes up a lot less storage space too.

If you insist on battery, I've heard good things about several brands: Black and Decker seems to doing well in the outdoor battery tools....though i just used one of their weed wackers helping someone yesterday and wasn't impressed. I think Ryobi and GreenWorks are the better options. I have a green works mower, weed wacker and a blower and they all work well.

Do they have other power tools? If not, i might suggest a Makita mower. Then they can get makita power tools and have common batteries for several uses.

I just bought the Husqvarna, based mostly on their reputation for quality.  An important consideration for me was not just the mower, but what other battery operated tools would I buy.  I bought this to use as a trim mower.  The battery powered mower is much lighter than a gas mower.  I have only used it twice, but so far I like it quite well. 

I did not purchase any other tools yet.  However, I will eventually buy some "bare" Husqvarna tools.

Most brands now have a full line of tools that use the same battery.  Therefore I would consider what "Line" you will be happy with, not just what mower.
I tried not believing.  That did not work, so now I just believe
