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.
Although the presence of a clipping collection box does make them difficult to use under overhanging shrubs it also removes the hassle of having to rake up cuttings after mowing. Rear roller electric lawn mowers have a roller instead of wheels at the rear of the machine. The addition of a roller enables the gardener to create a striped effect in their lawn as the roller flattens the cut grass in front of it. Both four-wheeled and rear-roller electric mowers are ideal for use on rough and uneven ground. The fourth type of electric lawn mower available on the market is the electric cylinder mower. Here rather than using a rotary cutting movement that flails the grass and damaging the blades of grass the cylindrical cutting motion of the blades acts like a pair of shears as they meet the cutting edge of the machine. This creates a clean cut leaving the lawn less prone to dehydration and browning. Cylindrical lawn mowers are used by many professional gardeners and groundskeepers and are ideal for use on flat lawns where a short cut is required. A rear roller can also be attached to cylindrical mowers to achieve the striped lawn effect.
Electrical powered mowers are divided into two categories. The AC powered types and the battery powered. You can have the freedom to work anytime and anywhere in your lawn by choosing the battery powered Husqvarna mowers. If you have a bigger lawn with long grass the ride-on mowers will save you time and labor. The cutting deck is mounted at the front which enables you to see the progress and efficiency of the actual action. Its a common problem when sometimes you have uncut grass and weeds spread into your lawn. Choosing this brand of mower solves this problem by providing a container for you.
The easiest way to mulch your lawn is to use the very grass clippings produced when you mow. As the clippings decompose they return valuable nutrients to the soil including nitrogen which contributes to a bright green color. The clippings need to be small enough so that they break down quickly and they must be spread evenly throughout your lawn. Mulching will also save you time as you will not need to water or fertilize as often and you will no longer need to rake clippings after mowing. Because the clippings need to be of a small size to mulch your lawn with its own clippings you will need to either mow very frequently or invest in a mulching lawn mower.
