2009 Solaris Self-Propelled Cordless Electric Lawn Mower Review – 4

Solaris Brushless Moter Lawn Mower

Yesterday in Part 3 we reviewed the batteries for the 2009 model of the Solaris electric self- propelled lawn mower.

Solar Charged Mower – Part 10 – Mulching Blade

Mulching Blade

A feature that we have not yet written about regarding our new solar charged lawn mower is it's mulching ability. I have always used the mulching feature on any lawn mower I have had in the past. I like the idea of the grass being cut in to very small pieces and remaining on the lawn to provide nutrients to the roots of the grass.
