Electric mowers are ideal for the environmentally friendly person but they are not good for larger lawns because they have a cord. However there are rechargeable electric lawn mowers if you are insistent upon being environmentally friendly. Keep in mind the charge does not last long enough to do large lawns over an acre. Now that you know the differences in lawn mowers and their performance you should find it easier to buy one that meets your needs. This lawn mowers buying guide should be useful in determining the type of lawn mower you need for your yard. Comfort and affordability are essential in buying a lawn mower but you need to know what you are looking for before the salesperson sells you the most expensive lawn mower in stock that doesnt meet your needs.
Obviously most people do not have a flat plot of land so you need to look at only models that are going to be able to mow your lawn. Dont waste your time looking at something that is not going to make your lawn care easy. Here is a list of things to consider when looking for a lawnmower: 1. The grass type. Basically if you have coarse grass with a lot of large weeds you are going to need a lawnmower that can chop the weeds just as easily as it cuts the grass. 2. The amount of land you have to be mowed. If you have several acres of land you more than likely will not be happy with a push mower and you will not be able to use an electric mower and have the yard completed in one day.
Traditionally the main method of mowing your lawn has been with a gas powered lawn mower. It is a machine that has served the test of time and performs the job well. There have been corded electric lawn mowers around for a while of course but gas mowers have remained the most popular. More recently though cordless lawn mowers have come onto the market and have been growing in popularity. But overall which is best? One of the attractions of gas powered mowers is that their range and how much lawn you can cut is limited only by how much gasoline you have in your can. Therefore for large lawns this is clearly an attraction.
The biggest benefit when comparing petrol powered mowers to electric or cordless styled mowers is range. Battery-powered cordless mowers will only run until their battery dies giving the user about forty five minutes to an hour at most. This will do the job for most lawns but you might end up with a half-shaven grass if you have a large grass area. As for electric lawn mowers they will last as long as you dont have a power outage or blow a circuit breaker but they are always connected to your home. This connection stretches about 150 feet - fine for most jobs but again any irregularly shaped or big plot of land will present some complications to anyone using an electric mower.
