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.
Electric mowers run on electric power both by a corded connection from the main power source or they are also powered by rechargeable batteries. In hover mowers a turbine above the spinning blades pushes air downwards producing an air cushion to raise the mower somewhat above the land which eliminates the impact of friction in between the ground and the mower leading to its enhanced maneuverability. In a robotic mower a border wire defines the area to be mowed and the mower is programmed to operate on its own without any requirement of a human interference in its working.
The Introduction of Gas Powered Lawnmowers Despite the widespread success of McGuires reel mower consumers still viewed mowing the lawn as an inconvenient time consuming task. Because of this they desired a non-man powered mower. The solution came in 1902 when English engineering company Ransomes Sims & Jeffries introduced the first internal combustion gasoline powered engine. Finally in 1919 Colonel Edwin George made it possible for gas powered mowers to be manufactured in the United States. However due to the financial depression and the Second World War gas powered mowers didnt receive mainstream success until much later.
Are you one of those people who are just sick and tired of mowing the lawn with their traditional old lawn mower and are looking for a better option? Electric lawn mowers are a new alternative that offer many benefits over conventional gasoline powered lawn mowers. Traditional mowers have an engine that runs on gasoline fuel. In contrast electric mowers are powered by electricity either directly from a cord that you plug into a socket like any other appliance or by using a rechargeable battery that fits in the deck of the mower. Cheaper to Run While the initial upfront cost of an electric mower can vary and may potentially be more expensive than a gas mower there are long term cost benefits to be gained.
