Lawn Mowers & Leaf Blowers

Electric Lawn Mowers (Residential)

Lawn Mowers vs CarsBecause many conventional gas and diesel lawn mowers do not have strong emission controls, they are widely recognized as a major source of smog-forming air pollution. In fact, a 6HP diesel or gas mower running for an hour creates the equivalent emissions of driving your car 160 miles. (source)

Not only do old-fashioned lawn mowers burn fossil fuels, they also create ground-level ozone and haze. And, an estimated 17 million gallons of gas is spilled each year as we refuel the mowers, which can pollute drinking water. Read the full story. »

Receive up to $100 toward the purchase of a new electric lawn mower.

Local Hardware stores
Electric lawn mowers may be purchased anywhere in Vermont. See Burlington's City Hardware and Biben's Ace Hardware for additional limited time savings.

Switching to an electric lawn mower can significantly reduce the number of toxic pollutants directly released into the air. And since Burlington runs on 100% renewably-sourced energy, there is an environmental benefit to mowing with an electric mower.
