I just purchased this sunbeam twin blade electric mower today. dont know much about it but didnt think i could go wrong with it for 20.00. I plugged it up and it works. sounds like a high powered blender lol. does anyone know anything about these odd machines?

That's a neat unit.  Sunbeam probably used a motor from their appliance line.  I wonder how much power it has?  How wide is it? 

 

I can imagine the warning decal, though: "Don't run over your cord or the motor will stop and you might jump."

My next door neighbor had on of those, shoots the grass everywhere, and it always cut the grass.

That one looks great.  

 

I think a twenty was a good deal for a classic.  

 

I used my electric Toro snowblower to do the 5 - 6 inches in the driveway.  One good things, the electrics always start.

Lol thanks. It's definitely a odd mower. And to think I picked it up at a peddlers mall of all places!! And it's a 18 inch cut.

But when the power is out... gasoline is still king.  :D

I had a neighbor who had one when I was a kid. His son hated mowing with it because of the cord it was always in the way.

Neat little mower ! It sure has a different discharge design being 2 each going to a different side , is that to make sure you get grass into the flower beds ? lol Maybe it doesn't have enough ump to throw it that far ?
