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.
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.
All models except the LawnBott Spyder LB2100 require a few hours of time set up of the perimeter wire and then usually some tinkering until you get the pattern that best fits your lawn. The wire is laid on the ground and held in place with the included pegs or it can be buried a few inches deep for full invisibility. When the robotic lawn mower senses the perimeter it turns and goes off in another direction. Fully automated robots also use the perimeter wire to lead them back to their docks for charging. Some people complain that this one-time perimeter wire set up is harder than expected.
In case you havent noticed these push-pull lawn mowers are making a big comeback. They are absolutely green environmentally friendly AND they will definitely keep you fit! Mowing the front lawn for 20 minutes each weekend is a good enough warm-up before you hit the jogging path for a 2-mile jog! Of course if you have a big lawn then a push-pull mower may not be ideal but maybe if you schedule your lawn mowing activities then maybe it would just work out! Push-pull mowers have several valid reasons going for them at the top of the list is that they are cheap lawn mowers theyre green (zero smoke and zero noise pollution) and they are economical to maintain just a squirt of lubricant here and there! Among the long list of cheap mowers here are three models that come highly recommended by customers who bought and are using them to take care of their lawns.
