Removable Batteries For cordless electric lawn mower models that offer a removable battery you should have the option of purchasing additional batteries so you can simply replace a flat battery with a fully charged one to allow you to continue mowing. A removable battery is also handy if you dont have a power supply in your shed or wherever you store your mower - you can simply take the battery unit out and charge it somewhere more convenient. Watt Hours Rating Each cordless electric lawn mower will have a voltage rating such as 24 Volt or 36 Volt and the size of the mowers fuel tank is measured in watt hours - the higher the watt hours the longer you can mow for. To calculate the watt hours rating for a mower simply multiply the battery voltage rating by the amp hour rating - this will tell you how much power the mower battery can deliver over time.
This style of lawn mower is well-suited for lawns that measure around 100 square meters and are made of soft-bladed grass. As long as you did not include the Saint Augustine or Bermuda types of grass in your lawn this lawn mower will work. The power lawn mowers also come as either rotary or reel mowers. The rotary type is less expensive than the reel type and is also simple to run and easier to sharpen. The reel mowers are amazing for easily shortening your grass to golf green level and they leave a tidy appearance to the grass afterwards. If you arent opposed to the smoke the odor and the racket a gas-powered lawn mower could be what you are looking for . But for those who do mind the noise odor and smoke the electricity-powered lawn mower style is a superior choice. Electric-powered mowers can be found in corded or cordless styles. The corded lawn mower will need a cord stretching about 100 feetlong which will plug in to an electric outlet.
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.
If you have a small or regular sized yard (say up to 5000 square feet) then a regular electric mower is probably going to be suitable for your needs. If you have acreage or a large yard then a riding lawn mower or a cordless electric lawn mower with additional batteries might be a better option. If you opt for a corded mower you will be restricted by the length of the electric cord and the availability of power outlets around your yard. Unless you do have a small yard battery operated mowers are a much more flexible option as you dont have to worry about dragging along an electric cord while mowing.
