But if youre one of the people who dreads running over the cord itself and cutting it with the lawn mower blades or if you simply find electric cords a nuisance then you will like a cordless electric lawn mower. It has a portable power supply. You only need to charge it once daily for about 4 to 6 hours each time. (Depending on the power capacity of your electric engine the mower might need to charge for a few hours more or less.) A human-powered or push mower will be appropriate for running on sloping hilly yards. For ease of use get the front-propelled type of lawn mowers. If your yard is really big then you might find that you require a tractor-type of lawn mower. This is the type you can actually drive like a vehicle as you trim the grass in the yard. If youre in the market for a "green" product then we highly recommend Earthwise Lawn Mowers.
Another bonus of electric mowers is that you will not need to store fuel for the engine which saves both storage space and money. Warranty Options Investigate the warranty options available - most electric mowers come with a two year limited manufacturers warranty and some will also offer a lifetime warranty on the mower deck. It is likely that any problems you might have with the mower will occur within the six months to a year so having a warranty that covers you beyond this initial period of use is a bonus. Finally price is often the determining factor when making any purchase. If you do have a set budget do your homework and always try to buy the best quality product you can afford as this is likely to save you money on maintenance and repairs in the long term.
By pushing the lawn mower the blades turn as the wheels turn cutting the grass or weeds. However push mowers arent as effective on overgrown weeds and dandelions because of the tall stalks and the speed of the rotating blades. Push mowers use a cylinder or reel system while other powered lawn mowers more commonly use a rotary mower with a vertical axis. A rotary mower cuts the grass shorter than a reel system with the added benefit that the grass is cut in a way that allows it to heal faster and thus grow faster. With a push mower the user would find himself or herself having to mow more frequently than with an electric or gasoline powered mower which is perfect for those looking for a workout but less so for the rest of us! Ride-on Mowers for Large Lawns Ride-ons can be fun for some people who have a bigger area to mow.
Engine features include the method of starting the engine the type of fuel and the type of engine. Lawn mower engines can be started with a recoil cord or an electric start. If you choose the electric start remember that the charge in the battery will require electricity to maintain it. Fuel choices include diesel or gas depending on the engine type. Your choice in the type of lawn mower engine is the two-cycle engine which requires a gas and oil mixture for fueling and the four-cycle which runs on straight gas. Research data indicates that the four-cycle engine is more efficient and requires less maintenance in the long run.
