Hi All, I'm looking into converting a walk behind mower to electric and can use some direction. I've been using a 42' lawn tractor for years but my new place has a yard the size of a postage stamp. I decided buy a kobalt 80v 21" mower with the 5ah battery. I returned it 2 weeks later. It was amazingly quiet, but left random blades of grass uncut with every pass. Cutting twice still didn't give the cut I would expect. I also realized going from 42" to 21" sucked, even with a small yard.
I think a wide walk behind mower might be my next option, currently looking through the classifieds. I'm trying to figure out motor and voltage for this project. Amazon has a 2000 watt 48v motor and a 3000 watt 72v motor. Will any of these work? One 36" cut has an 11 hp motor for comparison. I would like a 80 minutes of run time but 60 would work and enough power to cut grass quick in 1 pass. I've added a picture for the type of mower I'm looking to convert.
