What the expert says…

Andy Massignan, Product Director for the Residential Lawn Portfolio at AriensCo (opens in new tab) says that you should expect to pay between $4000–$8000 for top-end models. “In addition to bigger batteries to extend run time, other premium features include self-propelled drive systems to make mowing easier on large or hilly properties, comfort features such as ergonomic handles and grips to minimize vibration from the mower, and a steel deck construction to ensure the mower lasts a long time." 

So what’s the price of an electric lawn mower? From budget to blowout, electric lawn mowers vary considerably in price. We’ll walk you through how much you can expect to pay for the features you need. 

First of all, you’ll want to decide whether you would prefer a cordless or a corded model. The difference? A cordless model makes it convenient to reach those far-flung areas of the yard, but it comes at a price. Corded models start at about $100, while a cordless model may set you back between $200–$500.

Next up, you have the choice of push or self-propelling models. Push mowers offer a wallet–friendly option, while self-propelling models will assist you in pushing the lawn mower forward, making it easier to complete your task. They may be worth the investment if you’re on a large site or you would struggle to maneuver a mower without assistance.

In addition to the initial outlay, don’t forget to factor in running costs. You’ll be pleased to know that electric lawn mowers are relatively inexpensive compared to their gas counterparts. You’ll pay in the region of 20 to 60 cents an hour.
