There are many different kinds of lawn mowers. Once you begin looking towards getting a new mower you will probably lookup some lawn mower reviews and very quickly discover that youve many options available to you along with the specific type of lawn mower (for example cost size and the like). That said its fair to say that the type of mower you are considering purchasing is the primary factor involved. Cost size and everything else becomes unimportant if you start searching for commercial zero-turn mowers when you happen to just have a 20ft lawn. It is essential to undertake a brief analysis of the various sorts of lawn mowers and lawn tractors before you start checking through reviews allowing you to grasp the basic facts surrounding them; like if for example the mower you are wanting to buy runs on a horizontal axis (known as a cylinder or reel mower) or vertical axis (termed as a rotary mower). Just below are my different types of lawn mower reviews.
Removable Batteries For cordless electric lawn mower models that offer a removable battery you should have the option of purchasing additional batteries so you can simply replace a flat battery with a fully charged one to allow you to continue mowing. A removable battery is also handy if you dont have a power supply in your shed or wherever you store your mower - you can simply take the battery unit out and charge it somewhere more convenient. Watt Hours Rating Each cordless electric lawn mower will have a voltage rating such as 24 Volt or 36 Volt and the size of the mowers fuel tank is measured in watt hours - the higher the watt hours the longer you can mow for. To calculate the watt hours rating for a mower simply multiply the battery voltage rating by the amp hour rating - this will tell you how much power the mower battery can deliver over time.
Some powered lawn mowers come with a throttle control taking off some of the strain on the users pushing ability. To work the throttle control on these self-propelled mowers the user only needs to either press down on the throttle or ease up to either increase or decrease the speed of the mower and this throttle control allows the user to mow his or her lawn easily almost like a ride-on except with more accessibility. Owners of a petrol powered mower also dont have to worry about running over a cord by accident and reduces the risk of other garden lovers tripping over the cord.
Maintaining Your Mower Regardless of if you purchase a gas or electric mower you will always want to keep it well maintained. The most important thing you will need to do is keep the blades sharpened. Your lawn will look much nicer with a sharper blade. Dull blades will give your lawn a raggedy uneven look. Similar to a car low tire pressure can negatively affect the performance of riding lawn mower. Low tire pressure will cause the mower to use more gas or battery power while in use. However you do not want to over-inflate your tires either. Over-inflated tires could burst when running over something sharp such as glass or a sharp stone.
