Obviously not commercial, but with a decent deck this would be a viable proposition.....and being from the Ryobi/AEG/Dewalt etc group it would have good quality batteries. Be interesting to see what follows.....

At $3,999 it's better priced than the $6,500 Husqvarna Battery Rider. They are different machines though.

Does anybody do a battery powered zero turn yet? 

 

It would also be good if any of these had a battery pack that was easy to change in a few minutes and could be charged externally.

Wide cut is good

 

If it is battery powered I'd vote for walk behind… (don't have one, never used one)

 

Pros -

Less total vehicular mass than a sit on on soft ground

Saves battery energy not having to deal with and carry the extra weight of an operator.

If you are walking behind it you can always give it a bit of 'extra push'

 

Cons -

Unsuitable for those that are unfit/out of condition/lazy
