My brother who is a landscaper and has all the fancy big mowers. Picked this up for his home. Ya Ya Ya battery powered. Well he loves it. Cuts his whole lawn on one charge and folds up to put wherever you want. This is the more expensive one but believe ryobi has one without battery for $169 that has great reviews.

You know I was sort of interested in the battery ones as well.

They definitely have my curiosity especially with how far electric stuff has came.

The fold up Toro's are actually pretty neat and save a lot of floor space. But personally, I think Toro quality has declined a lot in the recent decade. Used to sell them and each year they'd get kinda worse. China made everything now. I'm a huge fan of older Toro mowers/power equipment in general. I'm rocking a 1991 Toro. 5.5 Briggs OHV, 3 speed, RWD, aluminum deck, blade clutch. Starts on 1st and runs like a fucking champ. Dat flawless cut each time.

I want one. But I still have a good working gas mower :-(. Sucks to break down and store though. This thing breaks down in like 5 seconds.

Whatever you get, don't get a mower with fwd. I got one as a homewarming gift from my sister and it's a solid honda but it's fwd. It makes no sense because you are primarily pivoting off of the rear wheels so the fronts aren't down nearly as much and spins half the lawn. Go figure it's a Honda

great mower, but if I could have picked one, it wouldn't have been fwd

Stay away from Koehler engine on anything, I like toro one lasted 14 years, other 7 years old and still going strong, about $400 a machine and well worth it.
