Defective Product, Horrendous Customer Service
We purchased this mower over the summer and successfully mowed our lawn once. The second time it stopped moving after about 10 yards. After multiple conversations with customer service, we followed their instructions and the mower is still not working. I requested a refund and was referred to Jim and Alan in the Recharge corporate office. I spoke with Alan who skirted every issue, offering transparent false empathy and said that he did not have the authority to offer a refund, but would... more

Seems Simple Enough
I was wowed initially with my new mower. I have half an acre beautiful manicured lawn. The mower cut beautifully with clean lines and perfect start. After the first cut, I attempted to cut my lawn again. The mower stared, but would only move 25 feet at a time. This problem only made the distance shorter with each attempt. I contacted the "Warranty" group as instructed. The tech suggested replacing the main control unit. So I waited a week for that part to arrive. The instructions were... more
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Fast, Simple Turn On And Go
Cons: Bad Instructions, Unreliable, Expensive, Kinks Not Worked Out

Frustrated
I purchased this G2 Recharge Mower on 6/1/2013 . I accepted delivery on June 10. I have a couple of issues that I needed addressed and have not heard from Recharge as Mower's Direct is not supposed to handle

I used this mower one day worked great. The next weekend I got my front yard cut but now I am not able to get the mower to move. It's as if the brake is on. This unit has a red-button switch for the brake not the lever as is posted in the manual.

The battery is half charged and... more
Pros: Quiet, Fast, Great When It Worked For One Cutting Session On Les Than 12 Acre
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Unreliable, Bad Instructions

Waste Of Money
Our mower worked for about two mows and has been inoperable since after many attempts to repair. Parts fall off, front wheels become out of alignment, doesn't hold a charge, cuts uneven. A piece of yellow junk. Shame on Recharge.

Less Than Okay
The mower arrived in a broken crate and had damage that warped the cutting unit. Contacting the distributor got a pickup and delivery scheduled. The replacement arrived quickly and again in a very damaged crate. Cheap Chinese packaging had split and again damaged to mower. The second mower also had a mis-drilled mowing height handle that would only allow about half of the mowing height range to be accessed. Two bad units in a row convinced me that a very good idea had been very poorly executed.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality, Packaging

I Love This Mower...
We received our mower and put it together in less than half an hour. It started right up and does a great job on our yard.

We only have a residential lot so there is not a lot to mow, but it is working for us really well. I cannot tell you how it will do on a larger, rougher lot.

I am really delighted to be using a battery-operated mower. No more gas cans or expense of the gas. I sleep easier knowing there is not a gas can in the garage.

No Service
I have written 3 time with no response. The mower is one year old. I have a bad bearing in one cutter motor. When I turn off the key and stay seated the mower will start moving on it's own. Very dangerous! Stepping on the brake has no effect. I have to put the machine in neutral or jump off the seat.

I'm not happy with the service. Other than that I like the machine in enjoy mowing with it. If anyone sees a service man anywhere give him my name.
Pros: Quiet

The Energy That Grows The Lawn Cuts The Lawn
I always like the idea of having the sunshine power my lawn mower. Since the 1970s, I have charged my lawnmowers with solar panels.

The Recharge mower G2 runs on 36 volts the same as my earlier electric-horse mowers. 40 some years later, I still solar charge my lawn mowers, at updated voltage of 48.

After lots of enjoyment in cutting lawn with my Recharge G2, I recently decided to turn it over
to a local fellow for his father to use.

G2 Recharge Tractor Is A Scam
Great idea...however...Driven by Solar, Inc. does not stand behind it's product. I support green technology and wanted to give business to those companies who make a "green" product. Sadly, the fact that it is made in China, sold in Canada (Driven by Solar, Inc.), and warrantied in USA (American Warranty Services) makes for a disaster when this product and it's parts fail, which it will most probably do within the first 6-12 months of regular use. Will be reporting Solar Inc to the... more

I Like It!
I like the G2 very much. After three mowings I find it leaves my lawns looking great. Its tight turning is a plus to me. It is quiet enough so it doesn't disturb my neighbors no matter when I mow. And a big plus to me is that the G2 is 100% environmentally friendly compared to those loud, gas-and-oil-driven mowers.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging

My Mower
Had a little trouble at first if I had a man to show me when I started it would have been fine, but was afraid to push buttons, but I think I have it figured out now. I also have a rechargeable push mower and love it too.
Pros: Durable, Features, Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again
