Anybody have a cordless electric lawnmower?

Looking for recommendations.
I'm considering this one

and this one

Each has their pros and cons, but I'm open to other considerations.

Yes.

I have a Greenworks G-MAX 40V 20-Inch Cordless 3-in-1 Lawn Mower with Smart Cut Technology which I paid $225 total for about half a decade ago.

Pros:

Quieter
Better for the environment
Easier maintenance
Lighter and easier to push
Easy to start
Intelligent blade speeds (maybe newer non-electric does this too)

Cons:

You may eventually have to replace the battery or want a second one if you have a large yard. But hey, no gas or oil or winterizing...
