Cut your grass, cut your costs, and cut your emissions — with the 36 volt Greenstation Lawn Badger!
The Greenstation's newest mower is a perfect, agile 18" residential tool, but don't let the size fool you — this Badger packs a punch. A 36 volt integrated cordless battery drives a quiet, zero-emission, highly efficient electric motor. The no-pull electric start is easy and instant with a safety key and bar trigger. Set all four wheels to 5 cutting heights with one-hand operation. And a durable metal deck comes with a grass bag and optional mulching plug so you're free to maintain your yard your way.
But the most amazing thing about The Badger is the price: if you purchase it at one of the six SCAQMD (South Coast Air Quality Management District) Mower Exchange Programs, you'll walk away with this $365 clean green machine for just $100!
