Lastly, since I am getting older I was wondering about the electric start option for either of the above mowers. I assume that electric key start means there is a battery and I wonder how long they last and how much to replace. I also think that since it is elelctric start, the pull start on the mower (in case the battery is dead) is much harder to start than if I just go with the Z Start or Toro Easy Pull that is guaranteed to start on one or two easy pulls.
I appreciate any opinions regarding these two mowers. Thnaks in advance!
