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.
Robotic lawn mowers are not maintenance free and most owners mentioned that one can expect to spend between $250-$300 per year on upkeep. Most of this maintenance is performed by the owner therefore the robots are designed for easy exchange of parts. Also unless your lawn has clear edges there will likely still be a little trimming that will need to be done for example in the areas around trees or along fences if the robot cant get as close as it needs. There are 2 main brands of robotic lawn mowers in the US and Canada: the LawnBott and the RoboMower. Both makes and models provide a beautifully cut lawn and contribute to its health with frequent mowings mulching systems and random mow patterns.
There are a few things however that you want to consider such as the proper maintenance of the mower itself. Always make sure to keep your mower clean and free of excess grass clippings and dirt. Also make sure that oil changes and spark plug changes are done at recommended intervals. You will also want to make sure to keep your blades in shape with regular blade sharpening. A sharp blade will make for better cutting thus reducing how hard the mower will have to work. The second option with Push Lawn Mowers is the self-propelled mower. These mowers make walk behind mowing a little easier to deal with.
Always ensure that the oil is changed and drained properly. This can be done with the help of oil evacuation systems available in the market. The maintenance of the mower is very essential to keep the lawn healthy. Before the mowing season begins take it for servicing to check the performance. Pre-cleaners can be fitted to the mower. The pivot points of the mower should be greased well. To prevent corrosion lubricating and greasing is very necessary especially during the monsoons. Sharpening of the blades periodically helps to cut the grasses accurately. Some other steps of servicing are adjusting a new belt using fuel stabilizers etc. There are many companies who send their technician for servicing your machine like blade sharpening greasing and oil filtering etc for a very nominal fee. Conclusion: At the time of purchasing riding lawn mower if your evaluation is perfect it can serve you for years. While using it always follow the safety tips like focusing on your work etc. There are many books on lawn mower servicing which are available over the internet.
