Reel/cylinder (horizontal axis) - Reel/cylinder mowers may be human-powered but they are often joined together with an internal combustion engine. As the most well liked commercial walk behind mowers (a lawn mower you push); the horizontal mower blade axis can make reel/cylinder mowers a superb all-rounder. Theyd be of little use on commercial lawns however for a small household lawn they are excellent. Rotary (vertical axis) - Vertical rotary blades are incredibly powerful and consequently typically they must be powered by an interior combustion engine. That said electric rotary mowers have grown to be ever more common. The primary down side to rotary mowers is because of the vertical axis they do not collect the grass cuttings.
Walk-behind lawn mowers vary according to many factors such as what fuels the movement how blades move what pushes the whole mower and what happens to grass clippings. The best type of walk behind depends mostly on the slope and size of your lawn: how many trees you have: and what is the condition of your lawn: smooth or weedy? Of course your workout also enters into your choice. Some people think that mowing is a good exercise while others may want it to be as easy as possible. Most rotary blade mowers can bag mulch or side discharge clippings easily. A reel mower can be equipped with a bag or just drop its clippings on the ground.
The longer the cutting deck the larger the cutting blade. The larger the cutting blade the greater amount of cut grass. Hence if you have a huge lawn then you would want to choose a mower with a longer cutting deck to speed up your cutting time. It is much quicker to cut your lawn with a riding mower. Riding mowers are also better for those individuals with health issues because there is much less manual labor involved. Riding lawn mowers can also serve other purposes such as being used as a snow plow or a small trailer. Riding lawn mowers should not be confused with gardening or lawn tractors.
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.
