My dad started using one back in the 1970's during the first energy crisis. Now that I have my own house, I never ever thought about getting a gas mower. Loud, smelly and obnoxious.

all my lawn "tools" are electric. They do a wonderful job.

I'm hoping that when both my back and front lawns are gone and are replaced by veggies, I will be able to get rid of the electric ones as well.

I have a cordless eletric and it works fine for 4000 sf of yard.

And I'm thinkin of ways to make the lawn area smaller so I would have to mow less.

Here in coal country (PA), most of our electric power is generated from coal. So I don't think switching to electric tools is reducing carbon emissions much here, unless we pay extra every month to switch to wind power. I vote for lawn reduction or lawn elimination, using native plants as a replacement. And the new reel mowers (human-powered) work great.
