Electrical lawn mowers have a few more advantages than gasoline powered ones. They use less energy, they are eco friendly, they are more portable because of their weight and they aren’t as noisy.

Gasoline powered mowers can cover a larger area than an electric one. They are also better for taller grass. Electric mowers are easy to store and also a lot more easy to handle. Also we can add the advantages above, eco friendly, lightweight, less noisy.
The main disadvantage is the limitation of cords and batteries. Electric mowers cannot cover an area larger than 100 square yards. A power cord is no longer than 100 feet and batteries don’t last longer than an hours. This is why gasoline powered mowers are great for large yards.
