His additional comment was that trees bushes shrubs and others may entangle the electric cord and recommended increased awareness of the power cord in those situations. What will they think of next? A flip handle can you imagine? Yes indeed the flip handle electric mower reduces time and energy wasted in trying to turn the mower around to cut the next row of grass. This wonderful feature is found on the Black & Decker MM675 Lawn Hog 18-Inch 12 Amp Electric Mulching Mower Flip-Handle electric mower. This feature like the reduced weight of the LM175 makes mowing easier for older children or smaller adults who might otherwise struggle with a heavier mower that needs to be manually turned.
Most home owners with electric lawn mowers say the primary reason for choosing electric was environmental consciousness. Experts say that mowing your lawn for about an hour with a regular gas powered mower causes more air pollution than driving a car for 150 miles. Electric mowers use substantially less energy to operate so there is much less drain on the environment. Another benefit to having an electric lawn mower versus gas run is that you wont have to worry about pulling away on a cord to get it started. Electric mowers are turned on with the push of a button.
These mowers operate like a bulldozer or tank in the way they can turn right back on themselves. Even though bulldozers and tanks use treads to control their movement and a zero turn lawn mower uses its rear wheels the principle is the same. By varying the amount and direction of drive power applied to each wheel you can control the movement of the machine. For example if both rear drive wheels on the mower are moving forward at the same speed the lawn mower will go forward in a straight line. If one wheel moves a little slower than the other the lawn mower will roll in the direction of the slower going wheel. And if you want the mower to roll in half circle just make one wheel turn backwards as the other moves forward. Normally zero turn lawn mowers have two rear drive wheels linked to hydrostatic transmission which is what transforms the engines power into hydraulic pressure.
Lawnbotts are programmed to cut your lawn frequently such that they just take off the very tips of the grass blades. This means the clippings are the perfect size for a good mulch. LawnBotts boast lithium ion batteries which are even more eco-friendly than lead acid types. RoboMowers follow a more traditional mowing schedule and therefore cut the grass blades when they are longer. Their triple chamber mulching system cuts the longer blades into smaller pieces also providing an effective mulch and natural fertilizer. Mulching is just one of the many benefits provided to owners of robotic lawn mowers.
