Surprisingly they carry a potential risk for the homeowners who have lawns that have some dips or others who have rolling lawns. Ride on lawn mowers can tip over if they are on very uneven ground and cant go places where other lawn mowers might into the much tighter parts and close up to in-lawn obstacles such as shrubs and around the base of trees requiring additional work. They are however invaluable for cutting large areas of flatter lawn in the lowest possible time. The Pros and Cons Petrol power is one of the more common types mowers. They can be noisy but are very effective and can get to places where a ride-on lawn mower or lawn tractor wouldnt be able to reach as previously discussed. If part of the lawn is downhill and the ground isnt even that wouldnt be much trouble with a petrol lawn mower because with the users help the mower can get to grass in a dip.
Most of these accidents occur when the person reaches under the "skirt" of the mower or reaches into the discharge chute. (Source: Technology Associates) Other common injuries are caused by flying objects. Traditional lawn mowers have large blades that can throw objects as much as 50 feet. Combine that with risk of the operator slipping underneath flipping over in a riding lawn mower or being run over; one can easily see the concern for safety when it comes to lawn mowers in general. But robotic lawn mowers are completely different. The one biggest safety advantage robotic lawn mowers have over traditional lawn mowers is that you do not have to stand behind it or ride on top of it.
The longer the cutting deck the larger the cutting blade. The larger the cutting blade the greater amount of cut grass. Hence if you have a huge lawn then you would want to choose a mower with a longer cutting deck to speed up your cutting time. It is much quicker to cut your lawn with a riding mower. Riding mowers are also better for those individuals with health issues because there is much less manual labor involved. Riding lawn mowers can also serve other purposes such as being used as a snow plow or a small trailer. Riding lawn mowers should not be confused with gardening or lawn tractors.
Robotic lawn mowers have very different blades than the traditional mowers. First the blades are a lot smaller which play a large part as to why it is less likely to throw objects far away. Even though robotic lawn mower blades spin a lot faster and yields a better-cut quality than traditional mower blades the force behind the smaller blades just isnt enough to launch objects nearly as far as larger heavier blades. Also robotic lawn mowers blades are usually recessed or protected on all sides obstructing a clear pathway for flying objects to travel. Being an avid user and tester of robotic lawn mowers I have personally seen objects thrown for a maximum of 5 feet max from a robotic lawn mower. The objects rarely make it more than 8 inches off the ground and do not have nearly the amount of force behind them compared to if a traditional mower throws the same object.
