First as the battery loses its charge the cutting ability of the mower will deteriorate causing multiple recharges if your lawn is too large to do on one charge. Next rechargeable batteries only last for a certain amount of time replacing them can be expensive nearly as much as purchasing a new mower. Lastly they do not work well if your grass is thick or your yard is rough. Electric Lawn Mowers Electric mowers are the big brother of battery-operated mowers. These types of mowers can be used on any lawn up to about three-quarters of an acre if you have enough extension cord.
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.
The engine size and torque specifications of your mower need to be sufficient to handle what you will be cutting. The types of clippings need to be factored in when you decide how you will manage the discharge of newly cut grass. Basically you will determine whether you wish to mulch or bag the clippings. If you decide to bag then you need to choose between side-discharge and rear-bagging. Some mowers offer a 3-in-1 discharge option allowing flexibility between bagging side discharge and mulching. Types of Engines Consider the types and features of the engine when selecting a lawn mower.
Just like any mower there also are downsides to petrol powered lawn mowers. Noise is one of those downsides with many places specifically in the US and parts of Europe having a noise ordinance which means that they cannot be fired up outside specific times of the day. It also might be a disturbance to nearby neighbors who dont appreciate the noise of a petrol engine in addition to the usual mower sounds. Another potential downside to petrol powered lawn mowers is the fuel. With petrol prices on the rise people are trying to avoid using too much petrol and are often aiming to reduce their fuel intake.
