They are also heavier and louder than the above-mentioned mowers. Gasoline powered mowers can be used on lawns up to 1 acre in size with any type of grass and no matter how rough your lawn. The only thing that stops this type of mower from doing any size lawn is how much walking you are willing to do. For lawns that are one acre or larger you should look into a self-propelled mower. You will also need to choose between a two-cycle or four-cycle engine. Four-cycle engines run on regular gasoline two-cycle engines require that you mix special oil with the gasoline.
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 big difference is that riding tractors have cutting decks mounted in the middle rather than the front. Because of this riding tractors are much less maneuverable. Electric vs. Gas Powered Just like automobiles there are both gas and electrically powered riding lawn mowers. If you purchase an electric mower you always need to make sure that the battery is fully charged before using. Electric mowers are also quieter and more environmentally friendly. On the negative side since the mower runs on a battery there is always the concern that the battery will drain before the job is complete. Price-wise electric mowers can be quite expensive.
Four-cycle engines are easier to use but two-cycle motors are typically quieter and more durable. Riding Lawn Mowers There are nearly as many types of riding mowers as there are walk-behind mowers. They come in classifications of lawn mowers (the smallest type) garden tractors (very large with many options) and zero turn lawn mowers. If your lawn is more than an acre in size you should consider purchasing a riding mower. This type of mower will save you a great deal of time and effort when mowing large lawns. If you have many trees or other obstacles in your yard to maneuver around you should consider a zero-turn type of riding mower. Only people with very large lawns and that do a lot of gardening and other heavy outdoor yard work would need to consider purchasing a garden tractor sized riding mower.
