Electric mowers run on electric power both by a corded connection from the main power source or they are also powered by rechargeable batteries. In hover mowers a turbine above the spinning blades pushes air downwards producing an air cushion to raise the mower somewhat above the land which eliminates the impact of friction in between the ground and the mower leading to its enhanced maneuverability. In a robotic mower a border wire defines the area to be mowed and the mower is programmed to operate on its own without any requirement of a human interference in its working.
You should also consider your climate and grass type. Some models will cut higher than others or they have bigger wheels to raise the height of the cutting blades. In general RoboMowers are basic functional units with less bells and whistles and the price reflects this. They are quieter than gas mowers but you wouldnt be able to use them at night without disturbing the neighbours. They are slower than the LawnBotts requiring several mowing sessions to cover their reported area. RoboMowers are designed to mimic traditional mowing schedules and therefore cut the grass when it is longer. The blades mulch the clippings very well.
There are a few things however that you want to consider such as the proper maintenance of the mower itself. Always make sure to keep your mower clean and free of excess grass clippings and dirt. Also make sure that oil changes and spark plug changes are done at recommended intervals. You will also want to make sure to keep your blades in shape with regular blade sharpening. A sharp blade will make for better cutting thus reducing how hard the mower will have to work. The second option with Push Lawn Mowers is the self-propelled mower. These mowers make walk behind mowing a little easier to deal with.
Always ensure that the oil is changed and drained properly. This can be done with the help of oil evacuation systems available in the market. The maintenance of the mower is very essential to keep the lawn healthy. Before the mowing season begins take it for servicing to check the performance. Pre-cleaners can be fitted to the mower. The pivot points of the mower should be greased well. To prevent corrosion lubricating and greasing is very necessary especially during the monsoons. Sharpening of the blades periodically helps to cut the grasses accurately. Some other steps of servicing are adjusting a new belt using fuel stabilizers etc. There are many companies who send their technician for servicing your machine like blade sharpening greasing and oil filtering etc for a very nominal fee. Conclusion: At the time of purchasing riding lawn mower if your evaluation is perfect it can serve you for years. While using it always follow the safety tips like focusing on your work etc. There are many books on lawn mower servicing which are available over the internet.
