A riding lawn mower has less power than a lawn tractor but can get around flat surfaces quicker than most lawn tractors can. Riding mower models usually have fewer accessories and are not that great for use in the winter time. They need to be put away during the winter. You can find riding lawn mowers at many lawn and garden retailer in your area as well as online. As far as price well many of these mowers can cost five hundred dollars or more but in the long run since they save you so much time they are worth the price. There are many product review websites available so if you still arent sure if one is right for you then you can read reviews from other riding lawn mower customers including product specifications features pros and cons and just about anything else you want to know.
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.
The hover mower produces a cushion of air underneath the mower which allows it to be moved across the lawn. They are lightweight compared to other types of electric or gas lawn mowers and are ideal for use on sloping lawns. Their low body design and lack of collection box for grass cuttings also means that they are great for maneuvering under plants and bushes and into awkward spaces. Four-wheeled electric type mowers use an electric motor to power a rotating blade. The four-wheel design gives them better maneuverability than a rear roller mower and makes them more lightweight for ease of use.
This solves the problem of lugging a cord around your yard. Cordless electric mowers use 1 to 4 rechargeable 12-volt batteries. Most are more expensive than both gas mowers and electric mowers with a cord but there are some cheaper options out there. Plus you are not having to spend money on gas or maintenance so youll save in the long-run. Depending on what model you get cordless electric mowers may also come with a mulch plate. The plate is handy because it allows you to use the mower to mulch your grass in addition to just cutting it. Check to see if the cordless electric mower you are interested in comes with this feature. If you are interested in getting an electric mower be it cordless or not be sure to check customer reviews. Since these mowers are relatively new on the market it is difficult to say what types of problems they may face over time. The best way to find out about these is to hear what actual owners are saying.
