The Introduction of Gas Powered Lawnmowers Despite the widespread success of McGuires reel mower consumers still viewed mowing the lawn as an inconvenient time consuming task. Because of this they desired a non-man powered mower. The solution came in 1902 when English engineering company Ransomes Sims & Jeffries introduced the first internal combustion gasoline powered engine. Finally in 1919 Colonel Edwin George made it possible for gas powered mowers to be manufactured in the United States. However due to the financial depression and the Second World War gas powered mowers didnt receive mainstream success until much later.

Easier to Maintain When it comes to maintenance keeping an electric mower running smoothly is a lot simpler than a traditional gas mower. You dont need to fill or change the oil or replace spark plugs or air filters - only keep the battery charged as per the manufacturers instructions. Many models have a durable non-metal deck casing which wont rust over time and can be easily wiped clean as you wont have any greasy oil or gas stains to remove. More Lightweight Most electric mowers are lighter than traditional mowers because they do not have a heavy gas engine or a tank full of fuel.
