The electric lawn mowers and other lawn mowing equipment are a popular item on the Israeli market.
And they are often the only options when the weather is cold and the plants are out of bloom.
In Israel, a simple and cheap lawn mow can be purchased at a discount for a few thousand shekels, or around $2.50, while a larger, expensive lawn mowed can be sold for $300-$500.
The Israeli government, however, has been pushing for electric mowers to be sold at a higher price.
The latest attempt at the government’s push came from the country’s Ministry of Culture and the Arts, which last month launched a petition calling for the government to set a price for electric lawnmowers.
In a written statement to The Jerusalem Times, the ministry said that “the government is aware of the popularity of the electric lawn equipment and is planning to regulate it accordingly.”
“The ministry will regulate the use of electric mowing machines according to the laws of the country, and will regulate its distribution accordingly,” the ministry added.
The ministry is also in talks with other Israeli municipalities to set prices on the machines, which it expects to be cheaper than the traditional, gas-powered ones.
The ministry has also asked that the Israeli Civil Administration and the Israel Land Administration regulate the sale of electric lawns.
The Ministry of Tourism and Industry, however is also considering setting prices on lawnmowing equipment, according to Haaretz.
According to Ha’aretz, the Ministry of Agriculture has already decided to set an average price of about 10 shekeles ($0.70) per mower for its sales in the country.
The same newspaper quoted a senior ministry official as saying that the ministry was “looking into the possibility” of setting prices higher than 10 shekel.
The electricity price of the lawnmower, which costs around $300, is often the highest, according the Israeli website EcoWatch.
That website estimated that a mower that is “green” and has no toxic emissions could cost as little as $120.
The electric lawn machine also has a much smaller impact on the environment.
It does not produce as much carbon dioxide as a gas-burning machine.
And unlike gas-fired machines, the lawn mop can be turned off and on in the middle of the day.
