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.
The combustion within the engine then powers the cutting blades of the mower which can either be rotary or cylindrical. The rotary blade acts like the big hand on a horizontal clock. They rotate clockwise cutting the grass as they turn. In most case there are 4 blades and they are shaped to produce an updraft of air as they spin like an aircraft propeller. This causes a differential in pressure under the mower which pulls at the grass before cutting it. The rotating blade mower works much like youll see on a combined harvester. One blade will capture and lift the grass and then the next blade in the cylinder will cut it.

Although gasoline powered mowers didnt receive mainstream success until 1945. Once American soldiers returned home from war and resumed their household tasks they decided they didnt want to waste their time and energy on an old push mower.
