E-Bike Lawnmower

When an electric assist bicycle and a gas powered lawnmower converge you get a tricked out electric lawnmower that can perform as well as a gas powered mower. See video of it in action below.

Video Description:

I converted my 125cc two stroke Victa lawnmower to electric using a MY1020 motor manufactured by UniteMotor Co and 36V worth of SLA batteries. As you can see the lawn is very overgrown but it performed as well if not better than the two stroke version. It total I have 19Ah of batteries comprising buddy pairs of 7Ah (left over from ebike experimenting) and 12Ah (brand new). Total mowing time was over 45 minutes.
