Simply plug in and charge with none of the obvious hazards of dealing with a highly combustible liquid. One of the particular complaints made about gas mowers is their starting. The usual method for starting up involves a pull cord mechanism and in some instances can take several attempts before the engine springs to life. Inevitably this can require some considerable effort not to mention frustration particularly with some more erratic starting mowers. Gas mowers tend to be more difficult to start at the beginning of the mowing season (i.e. spring). Cordless lawn mowers have no such starting difficulties.
Most home owners with electric lawn mowers say the primary reason for choosing electric was environmental consciousness. Experts say that mowing your lawn for about an hour with a regular gas powered mower causes more air pollution than driving a car for 150 miles. Electric mowers use substantially less energy to operate so there is much less drain on the environment. Another benefit to having an electric lawn mower versus gas run is that you wont have to worry about pulling away on a cord to get it started. Electric mowers are turned on with the push of a button.
This in turn moves the mower and controls its course. The mowers engine powers a pump that exerts pressure on hydraulic fluid and the pressurized fluid helps to drive the wheels. In early versions of zero turn lawn mowers the operator controlled the speed and the direction of the mower by moving a pair of levers. Newer mowers use a joystick handlebars similar to a motorcycle or even a steering wheel to provide control. They were initially made for industrial applications where reliability and up time are important characteristics. Mower manufacturers assert that very rarely do they have any service related problems with the hydraulic pumps. Just like an ordinary lawn mower properly maintaining the engine and keeping the mower deck clean should guarantee that a zero turn mower provide many years of service. The convenience of a zero turn lawn mower comes at a price.
Do you want to have a great looking and well-trimmed yard but hate the idea of doing all that edging and cutting manually? The answer to your problem may lie in the world of zero turn lawn mowers. Zero turn lawn mowers are riding mowers that can turn right around 180 degrees within in its own body length. It can in reality go right around in a complete 360-degree circle. They were originally designed for industrial applications. Zero turn lawn mowers with their great maneuverability allowed landscape contractors and golf course maintenance folks to cut right up against and around obstacles without ever having to get off the mower and do any trimming.
