Had a battery fail recently on a customer and replacement was $250 +, they had paid that for the mower so another mower in the scrap yard. Lead Acid battery packs are usually cheaper but still $100+
My suggestion is get a name brand unit with electric start, Sears no longer services mowers, they do some warranty repairs however sometimes booking/scheduling can be insane. Other big box stores do sell reliable name brands but at the same time do not service them so PLEASE even if you see a smoking deal at a box store call a dealer and see if they can match it or not.
A good gas mower cuts far superior to an electric as well (mulch/bagging is also better)
So TLDR: buy name brand mower with electric start from a dealer (not a box store) if they can match the price you need to pay or a good manual reel mower (cut amazing)
Schurchill: husqvarna 7021p, honda engine, large rear wheels, no self propel, around $399.99 never have to buy another mower

Ya, I built some crazy ass shit with Lego as a kid. I had a thing for AMC Eagle AWD's as a kid for some bizarre reason, so I spent a lot of time going to the library and reading up on how AWD works in that car. I even hitchhiked to the library once cuz my parents were too lazy to drive me haha. Ya, I'm a nerd.
