The mower is cordless, electric, rechargable. Easy to put together, no tools needed. 15 hr to initialy charge, my yard is 10,000 square feet, so it's a small yard, and mower only needed the 1 charge to mow the yard. Pushes and feels the same as gas mower. Easy to start, of note, manual states that you CANNOT leave the battery plugged into the wall. Max plug in time is 24 hours, otherwise you will decrease the battery life. Also notes that during winter months you MUST plug into the wall and recharge it every 2 months (saw some other online reviews that had negative feedback regarding the battery and I suspect they may not have read the manual) . Very happy with this purchase.

This mower is awful... and it was so expensive! I bought mine in mid-March 2013. Now it is March 2014, and the battery won't charge, can you believe it? There is no 'off' season in Eureka, the grass grows all year, so winter storage was not an issue. I called Overstock to return it, they won't, they gave me the name of the manufacturer, who would not help me. They said (three weeks ago!) that they would contact a shop close to me to bring it in for repair, and no one has called me. Also, the mower is VERY heavy... Bottom Line, do not buy any products from this manufacturer, unless you want an expensive piece of junk laying around.
This is the third summer using this mower. I could tell at the beginning of the summer it was slowing down. I bought a new blade and thought that would help it. I needed to recharge before completing a small yard. Now yesterday and today I charged and attempted to use it... both time the full charged battery died after 5 minutes. Very disappointed.
Overall I really like this mower with one exception. It pushes very hard. I researched this product out thoroughly before buying and all the reviews did not mention this issue. It got pretty high reviews from everyone but no mention of it pushing hard. In fact I was very tired after pushing this mower throughout my yard. I'm sure it's due to the weight of the battery which was surprisingly heavy. If that ever gets worked out this is an awesome mower. I would not have bought this mower had I known how heavy it would be to push.
