Default Daughter needs a lawnmower

My daughter has a small lawn and needs an inexpensive lawmmower. Been thinking maybe a corded electric may be the thing since she is not good with maintaining engines. If anyone has experience with corded electrics or any suggestions, that would be most appreciated.

Look into the battery powered ones. Not cheap but she won't be buying extension cords every month

Buy the cheapest gas one they have at lowes. Its under $100. With zero maintenance it will last 3-4 years and start first or second pull.

When it breaks repeat the process.

If you cut that down to every other week you might be able to afford the electric bill

We(wife) uses an electric and it really is nice not having to deal with gas, oil, filters, stabil, spark plugs,etc. We are able to store it in a basement with no concerns. It's 14 years old, zero problems zero mantainence.

When I lived at home in the city, we had a small electric mower.... I think its perfect for a female.. No gas, oil, etc. to deal with. Push the on button and it starts.... Only pain in the ass is pulling the cord around with you as you mow, but she'll get use to dealing with that....
