However one has to be very careful with the electricity run lawn mower because it should not be run in the presence of water in the lawn or the lawn being exceedingly wet. The best alternative for mowing the lawn are the petrol mower which does not require being attached to any mains or run on batteries that do not sustain sufficient power to help a gardening enthusiast mow a bigger lawn. There is no issue related to wet lawns as well. Petrol mowers are easy to maintain as well in comparison with their electricity run counterparts owing to the simpler engine design.
The hover mower produces a cushion of air underneath the mower which allows it to be moved across the lawn. They are lightweight compared to other types of electric or gas lawn mowers and are ideal for use on sloping lawns. Their low body design and lack of collection box for grass cuttings also means that they are great for maneuvering under plants and bushes and into awkward spaces. Four-wheeled electric type mowers use an electric motor to power a rotating blade. The four-wheel design gives them better maneuverability than a rear roller mower and makes them more lightweight for ease of use.
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.
Although the presence of a clipping collection box does make them difficult to use under overhanging shrubs it also removes the hassle of having to rake up cuttings after mowing. Rear roller electric lawn mowers have a roller instead of wheels at the rear of the machine. The addition of a roller enables the gardener to create a striped effect in their lawn as the roller flattens the cut grass in front of it. Both four-wheeled and rear-roller electric mowers are ideal for use on rough and uneven ground. The fourth type of electric lawn mower available on the market is the electric cylinder mower. Here rather than using a rotary cutting movement that flails the grass and damaging the blades of grass the cylindrical cutting motion of the blades acts like a pair of shears as they meet the cutting edge of the machine. This creates a clean cut leaving the lawn less prone to dehydration and browning. Cylindrical lawn mowers are used by many professional gardeners and groundskeepers and are ideal for use on flat lawns where a short cut is required. A rear roller can also be attached to cylindrical mowers to achieve the striped lawn effect.
