The Hustler Zeon (see Finally — electric riding mowers) isn’t the only electric zero-turn lawn mower around — or at least it won’t be for long. Eco-Mow has a proto-type electric zero-turn mower that will be available soon.

The base model can cut up to one and a half acres on a single charge and costs $4,500. Larger models can cut up to three acres on a charge. Details were announced in Spartanburg firm's electric mower cuts carbon footprint.

The Zeon is still pretty cool, though. Here’s a quick video for you.
