I would second the motion that you should just keep using the electric. Use the piles of dead grass for what God designed them fertilizer!

Also, if you really want to get the job done faster, a well maintained and operating gas mower is faster and cuts better.

I went the reel mower route for 2 years. It is a very pleasant way to to cut the grass (you can even go barefoot) and is 100% free of any negative ecological byproducts. However, you have to mow twice per week, and it takes 3 hours each time.... and I only have a 1 acre lot. For me, it just makes more sense to do it right and do it fast using the good ole Briggs & Stratton 3.5HP lawnmower form 1994.
Trying to make the most of what God has given me.
