    I'm wondering how much mowing I could get done with a conversion and perhaps a bit more amp-hours on the battery. The idea of a quieter mower with good hill traction is quite appealing.

    BG - there has actually been some that were factory built. I expect with better batteries coming on line that this may come back to the surface.

    The rolling resistance isn't what takes the power on a mower. The actual mowing does. You might want to google electrac (GE). There actually are folks that are converting others. Check out this place:

    (There are actually a couple of forum members from here that are members there. And no - I am not jagwire, I'm still Jags:))
