I use my et's daily on the farm. The e12 with brand new 225ah batteries
cut 3 acres (even on hilly terrain) on one charge. In fact, after sheep
done grazing a 5 acre pasture, I mowed down what was left on two charges -
which was much more work than standard mowing because of the height.
But my e20 with old batteries will only mow .75-1 acre per charge.
3 acres is not a far fetched claim!
