The 14 year old rover quattro 40 died of old age - loss of compression and starter housing console broke off the top of the mower. So looking for a new mower 18" blade cut.
I have 430m2 of average lawn to fortnightly for 5 months of the year (Wet season Darwin) would prefer to mulch.
Have looked at Stihl RMA460 and Ryobi 36V not long enough run time on a single charge.
So it is down too these too brands. Victa is owned by Briggs & Stratton and AEG is manufacturered under licence by Ryobi from Electrolux.
with additional 2.0AH battery Total price $698
Total price $799
Both mowers seem equal on performance.
Battery life expectancy and performing in the Wet season with high humidity are a concern.
So questions are has anyone used these mowers in Darwin? Performance/experiences
Battery life in high humidity?
Can you mow in the rain with electric mowers?
