Economic Benefits of Electric Mowers
Why Electric: The Economic/Cost Savings
- Electricity vs Gas or Diesel: The electricity need to run a Mean Green Mower costs a fraction of the cost of gas or diesel.
- Lower Maintenance Costs: Conventional gas/diesel mowers require regular servicing that can cost hundreds of dollars for parts and labor over their operating lifetimes. Conversely, Mean Green Mowers need minimal maintenance aside from normal blade sharpening, a few grease points, and daily cleaning of accumulated grass from around the blades and motors.
- Lower Repair Costs: Conventional gas/diesel mowers have hundreds of moving parts in their engines, fuel delivery systems, and power trains, and these parts inevitably wear out and need replacement. These repairs not only remove the mowers from service, but increase their life-cycle costs, and often end up forcing operators to purchase new mowers soon after their 2 to 3 year warranties expire. Conversely, Mean Green Mowers have very few moving parts designed to operate for thousands of hours with minimal or no needed repairs.
