By removing the person this alone eliminates most causes of lawn mower injuries. Robotic lawn mowers are unlikely to clog. Take it from someone who has been an exclusively user of robotic lawn mowers for over 7 years - robotic mowers mow frequently and chop grass fine enough that the likelihood of clumps forming under the mower (or anywhere for that matter) are eliminated. But even if you attempt to lift the mower while it is operating the blade will immediately stop spinning. However if the blade(s) were to get snagged onto something the robotic lawn mowers computer is smart enough to shut down the blade(s) and signal for help.
Discharging grass clippings on to the lawn is often listed as a disadvantage to reel mowers. However we would disagree with this assessment as leaving the clippings on your lawn allows you to mulch your lawn at the same time as you mow. To mulch well clipping size needs to be small so again this works best if you mow your lawn regularly. If you dont or prefer to collect your clippings some models also have a grass catcher that comes with it or can be bought separately. Reel mowers are hard to push through tall grass. If your grass is extremely tall the first time you mow it you are going to have a hard time. From then on it will be easier but only if you mow regularly. If you prefer to only mow every few weeks then a reel mower will not likely work for you. All in all we think reel mowers are a great choice for many reasons but they arent for everyone. If you understand and are content with the basic limitations of reel lawn mowers then the next step is to read reviews and recommendations to find which is the best reel lawn mower for you. The environment and your heart will thank you.
For most of the country lawn-mowing season is upon us leaving many homeowners with the age-old question "which type of lawn mower is best for my yard?" This question comes about because there are so many different types of yards and so many different types of mowers. We will discuss different types of lawn mowers and what types of lawns each of them fit the best. Manual Reel Lawn Mowers Manual reel mowers are great for very small lawns that are flat and relatively smooth. If you have a small flat lawn this could be the best type of mower for you. Reel mowers are lightweight because they do not have an engine there are few moving parts so they last a long time without the need for many repairs and they are quiet.
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.
