<p>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 <a href=”http://www.goupstate.com/article/20090511/ARTICLES/905111053/1083/ARTICLES?Title=Spartanburg-firm-s-electric-mower-cuts-carbon-footprint” target=”_blank”>
