Cordless lawn mowers are limited by how long they can run before the battery charge runs out - generally the largest range is a third of an acre from a single charge. However you can increase the range by buying a model where you can remove the battery and then buy a second battery. The power of gas mowers tends to be greater than electric mowers (either corded or cordless) so if you have particularly tricky areas then this may be a consideration for you. However cordless lawn mowers have a number of advantages. The most obvious one being that there are no messy gas or oil cans to deal with.
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.
Weve heard that mulching your lawn is one of the most effective ways to promote a healthy lush and beautifully green lawn and robotic lawn mowers are very effective mulching lawn mowers. But what is mulch? And why is it good for your lawn? Mulch is defined as any material that is laid over soil to provide a protective cover to enhance productivity. The main benefits to mulching your lawn are that mulch: holds water in the soil by preventing evaporation discourages the growth of weeds provides nutrients to the grass This means you will use less water and less fertilizer while having a healthier and better looking lawn.
However there are significant difference between the various brands and models even down to which is more eco-friendly. If you have been thinking about investing in one of these lawn-friendly/time-friendly automatic mowers or are just encountering them for the first time we encourage you to do some research to see if a robotic lawn mower is right for you. Reading reviews of the various makes and models will be very helpful in deciding which one is right for your particular type and size of lawn and for your own personal philosophy.
