Okay for small to average yards
First of all to clear up any confusion, this is the 3 way, 20" STEEL deck version as Bunnings also sell a Homelite 18" 24V plastic deck version.
I've had my Homelite 24 volt mower now for a year, so here are my observations.
The weakness of this mower is the sealed lead acid battery system. To get the best out of this mower, users need to be aware of a few things.
Firstly, the supplied charger has no auto level cutoff, so if you leave it on too long the battery will overcharge and reduce the number of charge cycles from it's lifetime....Either use it with a timer switch, or get a charger meant for deep cycle batteries. The batteries are hard wired so they can't be swapped out for a fresh set to continue mowing. You have to stop, recharge and continue the next day.
Questions & Answers
I have a Homelite cordless lawn mower UT13126 which I bought from Home Depot in Winnipeg- Canada almost seven years ago. Since last few times the battery does not charge fully (showing two green light only and it runs out faster than before. Till Last summer and early spring it was working ok, but now it gives the problem as mentioned. Can any one tell me, whether battery could be a problem or charger?
