There are a few disadvantages to reel mowers. The most obvious being that you have to push them! This in itself is not a drawback if you cut your lawn about once weekly. However if you let your lawn grow longer you may find it quite hard to push your mower through the tall grass. Reel mowers cannot cut up or mulch small twigs so you will need to either check or rake your lawn prior to cutting or know that you will need to manually remove them from the blades. A small twig will catch in the blades and stop the reel dead. You may need to make several passes over some areas and reel mowers dont always get the tall stalky weeds the first time around. Because of this reason the cut will not be as exact as a gas mower. If you have a significant number of weeds in your lawn this may cause frustration especially if you would like a perfect cut first time around.
Another bonus of electric mowers is that you will not need to store fuel for the engine which saves both storage space and money. Warranty Options Investigate the warranty options available - most electric mowers come with a two year limited manufacturers warranty and some will also offer a lifetime warranty on the mower deck. It is likely that any problems you might have with the mower will occur within the six months to a year so having a warranty that covers you beyond this initial period of use is a bonus. Finally price is often the determining factor when making any purchase. If you do have a set budget do your homework and always try to buy the best quality product you can afford as this is likely to save you money on maintenance and repairs in the long term.
