Electric lawn mowers are not as powerful as traditional gas mowers but they are sufficient to get the job done. Deck Size The deck size or cutting swatch of the mower indicates the width of lawn that you will cut on each pass you make when mowing. So the larger the deck size the less passes you will need to make to mow all of your lawn! A larger deck size will generally mean a bigger mower so if you are very limited on storage space or unable to push or handle a large mower this is something you may need to consider. Compact Storage Features If storage space is at a premium look for a mower that has a collapsible handle that will fold down. This will allow you to store the mower upright or in small compact spaces. Mowers without this feature can take up a surprising amount of space.
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.
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.
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.
