Cordless electric lawn mowers can be heavier than the corded models due to the weight of the battery. Being lightweight and easily manoeuvrable makes electric lawn mowers ideal for use by people who have difficulty pushing a bulky heavy mower when mowing the lawn. Safer to Use There are also health benefits to using an electric mower as opposed to a conventional gas mower. Being relatively lightweight reduces the risk of injuring or straining yourself while pushing or lifting the mower. And because they are powered by electricity you are no longer breathing in toxic fumes and exhaust every time you mow - now thats a breath of fresh air! If you opt for a corded model you will need to take care not to trip or mow over the electric cord or you can avoid this risk altogether by opting for a cordless model that uses a battery instead. Environmentally Friendly Finally electric lawn mowers are much more environmentally friendly than conventional mowers simply because they do not run an engine that burns gas (fossil fuels). At a rough estimate an hour of mowing with a gas mower is equivalent to driving 350 miles in terms of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted into the atmosphere! Electric mowers can help to significantly reduce carbon emissions that contribute to global warming.
It does cost more than the conventional mowers but the extra time you will have every weekend during summer more than justifies the additional cost. The latest generation of robotic lawn mowers have a tremendous array of technology installed in their relatively small frame. It may be hard to believe but many of the current robot lawn mowers are based on 20 years experience so even though they may have received some bad press in the past the latest models are infinitely superior to the early prototypes. There are many differences between the robot lawn mower and the conventional mower.
On most petrol lawn mowers the operator is able to set the cutting height to one that he chooses - usually between 20mm and 80mm for most home garden mowers. Cutting grass to different heights during the cutting season can contribute to the health of your lawn so careful attention to a mowers cutting heights is important. Finally we need to do something with the grass cuttings. Different mowers offer different options but all will offer a grass collection box of some description. This box sits on the back of the mower and collects the cut grass compacting it as it does. Some mowers also offer a discharge option where the cuttings are discharges from the mower to the rear but also sometimes to the side. Finally there is mulching. Mulching is where the mower cuts the grass cuttings down into really small bits and then reintroduces them to the lawn. These small bits of grass are then broken down by micro-organisms in the soil which help then to fertilize the soil. So that it. Thats how petrol lawn mowers work. Of course there is probably a little bit more in the detail but as a general rundown thats your ticket.
Budding then worked to design the first reel mower - a series of blades arranged in a cylinder with a push handle. Buddings mower was 19" wide and constructed of wrought iron. The first reel mower to receive commercial widespread success in the United States was created in 1870 by Elwood McGuire of Richmond Indiana. McGuires model was a more lightweight easier to push mower with fewer moving parts - making it an instant hit in the United States and beyond. By 1885 America was manufacturing over 50000 lawn mowers per year and providing them to every country.
