Modern electric mowers are very powerful and very efficient and they are quiet. They do not require much service or repair so they make a great choice for small flat yards although they can do large lawns. The drawback of this type of mower is the fact that they have to be connected to electricity via extension cords which you must drag with you as you mow. Gasoline Powered Walk- Behind Lawn Mowers This category of mowers has the most different types of mowers in the class making the choice of a mower more difficult. All of these mowers share the fact that they are powered by a gasoline engine which will require more maintenance than the mowers we have discussed to this point.
The push mower will probably cover any garden size in-between. The second thing to look at is the lay of your land. Is the terrain flat sloped or steep? Lawn mowers with larger rear wheels or even rear-wheel drive are better for sloped and irregular lawns. The other choice to consider is a front-wheel drive self-propelled mower which is perhaps best for expansive flat acreage. The final consideration is landscaping ornamentation and obstacles. If you have numerous trees bushes or perhaps a pond look for a lawn mower with ease in maneuverability. Clippings and Cuttings Other things to consider when selecting a mower are the type and height of the grass the amount of moisture in your grass if you are in a low-lying area and any other organic material you may encounter such as twigs or pine cones.
Alternatively you can purchase reel mowers which have revolving blades that will flash over a fixed blade as they do the cutting. You can select these two kinds of mowers as either gasoline-dependent models or manual human-powered models. The rotary lawn mowers use the protective housing to prevent the grass from shooting out at you as the rotating blade does its job. It also keeps the circulating blade itself from suddenly flying out at you should it break loose from its fastenings sometime during the mowing job. That is why the protective housing is often manufactured of hefty metal with a painted finish to prevent rust damage. The reel mowers (which are hand-operated and not automated) are perfect if you want to enjoy the physical benefits of exercise.
If you enjoy the idea of having a beautiful lawn in front of your dwelling to gaze on to walk on occasionally and for the whole community to admire then you also probably realize that all lawns call for one thing - a lawn mower to keep all that grass looking tidy. But lawn mowers dont come in only one common size design or type. There are many lawn mowers for the many types of grass-trimming needs a lawn owner will have. You can choose lawn mowers called rotary mowers which rely on a circulating blade to trim and slash at the tall grass; the blade is shielded by a protective cover.
