My outdoor plug is a 10A GFI, and the ONLY tool I have that has tripped it is my 14A Patriot wood chipper.
Yep, I have the same mower as Neil. And it rarely goes above 500W. Maybe the blades have to lock to pull that draw, in which case a little extra cord resistance is appreciated.
I've been running electric since 1997. It's been great to pull it out after winter and it starts right up. I have been eyeing battery powered ones.
