Basically, I know that it's an electric motor and that it is more likely not a good idea. But if anybody has seen the commercial, you understand my question. The end of the commercial shows a sprinkler head spraying water all over the top of the mower. This is unusual, would like some clarification. As I have seen on my particular mower, where the plastic meets different parts of other plastic there is a small seam there that is open where water could get through.

Brandon, per the manual, the answer is unequivocally “no.” A little light mist or spring shower might not hurt, but do NOT operate your lawnmower in the  pouring rain.
