There are four main types of electric lawn mowers available on the market each with their own unique selling points to meet the needs of most gardeners. Due to a need for a main electric power source some lawn mowers are restricted in their range by the length of the extension cord but are ideal for small-to-medium lawns. Using electric mowers are more environmentally friendly because they are more energy efficient and do not emit pollution to the environment. When operating an electric lawn mower there is less noise pollution coming from the garden mower in comparison with the gas powered garden mowers.
Cordless lawn mowers are limited by how long they can run before the battery charge runs out - generally the largest range is a third of an acre from a single charge. However you can increase the range by buying a model where you can remove the battery and then buy a second battery. The power of gas mowers tends to be greater than electric mowers (either corded or cordless) so if you have particularly tricky areas then this may be a consideration for you. However cordless lawn mowers have a number of advantages. The most obvious one being that there are no messy gas or oil cans to deal with.
Traditionally the main method of mowing your lawn has been with a gas powered lawn mower. It is a machine that has served the test of time and performs the job well. There have been corded electric lawn mowers around for a while of course but gas mowers have remained the most popular. More recently though cordless lawn mowers have come onto the market and have been growing in popularity. But overall which is best? One of the attractions of gas powered mowers is that their range and how much lawn you can cut is limited only by how much gasoline you have in your can. Therefore for large lawns this is clearly an attraction.
Not too long ago I was at a local hardware store and overheard another customer talking to an employee about buying a new lawnmower for her husband. That is when it hit me not everyone knows how to buy a lawn mower. So I decided I was going to write a simple-to-read buying guide that was easy to follow but still informative enough that almost anyone can buy a mower that meets their needs. The first thing that needs to be told in this buying guide is not all lawn mowers are created equal. With this being said you need to understand that a cheap model is likely going to have a hard time cutting grass in a terrain that is not flat.
