Maintaining Your Mower Regardless of if you purchase a gas or electric mower you will always want to keep it well maintained. The most important thing you will need to do is keep the blades sharpened. Your lawn will look much nicer with a sharper blade. Dull blades will give your lawn a raggedy uneven look. Similar to a car low tire pressure can negatively affect the performance of riding lawn mower. Low tire pressure will cause the mower to use more gas or battery power while in use. However you do not want to over-inflate your tires either. Over-inflated tires could burst when running over something sharp such as glass or a sharp stone.
The idea of a robot with sharp blades attached to a powerful motor wandering around the lawn can sound frightening. But should it be? If you have seen a robotic mower whether in person or on the internet the thought may have crossed your mind. But exactly how do accidents with lawn mowers happen? Each year about 68000 people with injuries caused by traditional power lawn mowers are treated in hospitals. (Source: American Academy of Pediatrics) The most injuries from traditional lawn mowers occur when people place their fingers near the blade generally in an attempt to clear away a clump of grass or other undesired matter.
For many home owners reel lawn mowers also known as push mowers are making a comeback as their first choice for cutting their lawns. There are a number of good reasons for this. Probably the first consideration for people is the low environmental impact reel lawn mowers have compared to gas powered or even electric mowers. Gas mowers cause a surprising amount of pollutants in terms of noise as well as gas and oil used and spilled. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) a new gas powered lawn mower produces as many volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides emissions in one hour of operation as 11 new cars each being driven for one hour! They estimate that over 17 million gallons of fuel mostly gasoline are spilled each year while refueling lawn equipment.
There are many different kinds of lawn mowers. Once you begin looking towards getting a new mower you will probably lookup some lawn mower reviews and very quickly discover that youve many options available to you along with the specific type of lawn mower (for example cost size and the like). That said its fair to say that the type of mower you are considering purchasing is the primary factor involved. Cost size and everything else becomes unimportant if you start searching for commercial zero-turn mowers when you happen to just have a 20ft lawn. It is essential to undertake a brief analysis of the various sorts of lawn mowers and lawn tractors before you start checking through reviews allowing you to grasp the basic facts surrounding them; like if for example the mower you are wanting to buy runs on a horizontal axis (known as a cylinder or reel mower) or vertical axis (termed as a rotary mower). Just below are my different types of lawn mower reviews.
