Not too long ago I was at a local hardware store and overheard another customer talking to an employee about buying a new lawnmower for her husband. That is when it hit me not everyone knows how to buy a lawn mower. So I decided I was going to write a simple-to-read buying guide that was easy to follow but still informative enough that almost anyone can buy a mower that meets their needs. The first thing that needs to be told in this buying guide is not all lawn mowers are created equal. With this being said you need to understand that a cheap model is likely going to have a hard time cutting grass in a terrain that is not flat.
Reviews are generally quite positive regarding these electric lawn mowers. One review did state the obvious which is to always make certain that the electric cord is kept out of the way of the cutting blades or the human mower may become a crispy critter. In many ways the Black & Decker LM175 18-Inch 6.5 Amp Electric Mower is similar to the MM875 above. It has a slightly less wide cutting path the option of bag or no bag. This electric mower is about 30 pounds lighter that the MM875 which many make it a bit easier for older children and smaller adults to handle with ease. One reviewer returned to the electric cord and the need to be aware of its position during mowing. This gentleman mentioned beginning at the electrical outlet and carefully working his way away from that point of origin.
Besides range petrol-powered mowers are also much more powerful and versatile than other varieties of mowers as mentioned previously. With the petrol mowers you are getting a serious piece of machinery. The the purist and lawn mower enthusiasts nothing but a petrol lawn mower will do because they are the genuine article. While electric and cordless lawn mowers cannot cut through wet or rough grass the petrol powered ones can. Also if the grass is infrequently cut it can grow long and wild. A petrol mower can easily tame the laid-back landscapers biggest horror but other mower types simply can not. In addition to the benefits mentioned above petrol lawn mowers often have an extension for mulching grass after it is cut. This means that instead of throwing your grass clippings in the garbage they can be used as compost which will add a great variety of nutrients to any future soil you wish to mix with the compost. Without a doubt petrol-powered machines can have a positive green effect and provide you with a lot of joy and pleasure while you are mowing your lawn.
One reviewer mentioned that he could hear the birds singing above the low sound from his electric lawn mower. The traditional spark plug is not present with this lawn mower and neither is the need to keep an eye on gas levels for refilling at the most inconvenient places. To bag or not to bag that is the question! Yes you may choose to collect lawn clippings in the bag that is included with the electric lawn mowers or to let those clippings naturally mulch and fertilize your lawn. This is both good for the environment as well as your billfold since you wont need to purchase fertilizers that may be unhealthy for humans as well as pets.
