Question DetailsAsked on 8/4/2016

where can I get rid of my battery operated lawn mower?

I have a Homelite battery operated lawn mower that doesn't work anymore - I think the electronic connection isn't working anymore, I would like to fix if possible for a low cost, otherwise just get rid of.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Could put out on your lawn near the street with a sign on it saying "Free - Does Not Work" - it will likely disappear in a day or two.


Could try listing as free - non-working on Craigslist.


Could pull the battery and dispose of it (may or may not be free depending on your locale) at hazardous waste disposal site in your community. Then junk the rest of the mower at the local dump or break down to pieces to dispose of in regular trash.


Could call around to Mower and Power Tool repair places to find out diagnosis charge and assume about $25-50 additional repair cost probably if a simple connection problem. I would guess repair cost likely about $50-75 minimum plus parts, so likely into at least half the cost of a new one regardless of problem - and if battery has died, you are then into near the new cost with the service charge plus the new battery. "Low cost" repair not likely. Some of them will also take a dead one off your hands if in decent looking condition, as parts or for them to rehab and resell as a used mower.


Looks like new comparable mower is about $200 for 14", $400 range for 21" at Home Depot, and new battery about $100-150 depending on voltage - for comparison versus repair costs.
