If you enjoy the idea of having a beautiful lawn in front of your dwelling to gaze on to walk on occasionally and for the whole community to admire then you also probably realize that all lawns call for one thing - a lawn mower to keep all that grass looking tidy. But lawn mowers dont come in only one common size design or type. There are many lawn mowers for the many types of grass-trimming needs a lawn owner will have. You can choose lawn mowers called rotary mowers which rely on a circulating blade to trim and slash at the tall grass; the blade is shielded by a protective cover.
If youre looking for an economical lawn mowing solution thats safe hassle free and environmentally friendly then an electric lawn mower might be what you need. An alternative to traditional gasoline powered lawn mowers these modern mowers are powered by electricity either directly via an electric cord (corded electric lawn mowers) or by a rechargeable battery unit (cordless electric lawn mowers) housed within the mower deck. When looking to purchase an electric mower there a number of factors you should consider as outlined in this article. Consider Your Yard Size The first thing you should consider is your yard size.
Users with electrics that run on battery power eventually run out of power and need to be recharged which could take several hours. Imagine this: A beautiful sunny day with a weather forecast that says the rest of the week will be rainy. Its time to mow the lawn but wait whoever mowed the lawn last time realized the battery had run out and forgot to recharge it. Recharging a 12 volt battery takes a bit of time as opposed to just pulling the starter cord of your powered mower. If the petrol runs out all one needs to do is make a quick trip to the fuel station to get a refill and the blades of grass can once more quiver in fear.
You should regularly clean the rider and engine compartment before each use. Your goal is to clean out any debris that may have built up from the last use. Check the air filter as well because dust and debris will build up over time which will cause airflow problems. Airflow problems will eventually lead to efficiency problems. Always keep an eye on your oil level. Just like an automobile if the engine runs low on oil the engine may seize up. If the engine seizes up it may ruin the motor and require you to replace it. Always change the oil every 50 hours of use or before the beginning of every season.
