Robotic lawn mowers have very different blades than the traditional mowers. First the blades are a lot smaller which play a large part as to why it is less likely to throw objects far away. Even though robotic lawn mower blades spin a lot faster and yields a better-cut quality than traditional mower blades the force behind the smaller blades just isnt enough to launch objects nearly as far as larger heavier blades. Also robotic lawn mowers blades are usually recessed or protected on all sides obstructing a clear pathway for flying objects to travel. Being an avid user and tester of robotic lawn mowers I have personally seen objects thrown for a maximum of 5 feet max from a robotic lawn mower. The objects rarely make it more than 8 inches off the ground and do not have nearly the amount of force behind them compared to if a traditional mower throws the same object.
Reel/cylinder (horizontal axis) - Reel/cylinder mowers may be human-powered but they are often joined together with an internal combustion engine. As the most well liked commercial walk behind mowers (a lawn mower you push); the horizontal mower blade axis can make reel/cylinder mowers a superb all-rounder. Theyd be of little use on commercial lawns however for a small household lawn they are excellent. Rotary (vertical axis) - Vertical rotary blades are incredibly powerful and consequently typically they must be powered by an interior combustion engine. That said electric rotary mowers have grown to be ever more common. The primary down side to rotary mowers is because of the vertical axis they do not collect the grass cuttings.
Gas powered mowers are more efficient than electric mowers. Gas mowers also expend less energy. Gas mowers handle wet conditions much better than electric mowers. Gas mowers are much less expensive. Each type of mower has its advantages and disadvantages. When trying to determine which type of mower to purchase you must weigh the environmental advantage against the efficiency advantage. Bells & Whistles Riding lawn mowers for sale have kept pace with the automobile as far as bells and whistles are concerned. Riding mowers can come equipped with accessories such as cup holders cruise control sun shades and even CD players.
Maintaining Your Mower Regardless of if you purchase a gas or electric mower you will always want to keep it well maintained. The most important thing you will need to do is keep the blades sharpened. Your lawn will look much nicer with a sharper blade. Dull blades will give your lawn a raggedy uneven look. Similar to a car low tire pressure can negatively affect the performance of riding lawn mower. Low tire pressure will cause the mower to use more gas or battery power while in use. However you do not want to over-inflate your tires either. Over-inflated tires could burst when running over something sharp such as glass or a sharp stone.
