Finally you should keep an eye on the battery and cables. Eliminate any corrosion if it starts to build up by using a damp rag. Corrosion can build up due to acid leaks from the battery. Cautions and Dangers Since riding mowers are larger than manual mowers this makes them more dangerous to operate. In a study released by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission common dangerous problems include mowers tipping over riders falling off the seat and riders being run over by the mower. Therefore to fully protect yourself and your family you should take the following precautions: Always read the owners manual first.
The push mower will probably cover any garden size in-between. The second thing to look at is the lay of your land. Is the terrain flat sloped or steep? Lawn mowers with larger rear wheels or even rear-wheel drive are better for sloped and irregular lawns. The other choice to consider is a front-wheel drive self-propelled mower which is perhaps best for expansive flat acreage. The final consideration is landscaping ornamentation and obstacles. If you have numerous trees bushes or perhaps a pond look for a lawn mower with ease in maneuverability. Clippings and Cuttings Other things to consider when selecting a mower are the type and height of the grass the amount of moisture in your grass if you are in a low-lying area and any other organic material you may encounter such as twigs or pine cones.
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.
Another bonus of electric mowers is that you will not need to store fuel for the engine which saves both storage space and money. Warranty Options Investigate the warranty options available - most electric mowers come with a two year limited manufacturers warranty and some will also offer a lifetime warranty on the mower deck. It is likely that any problems you might have with the mower will occur within the six months to a year so having a warranty that covers you beyond this initial period of use is a bonus. Finally price is often the determining factor when making any purchase. If you do have a set budget do your homework and always try to buy the best quality product you can afford as this is likely to save you money on maintenance and repairs in the long term.
