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.
Obviously most people do not have a flat plot of land so you need to look at only models that are going to be able to mow your lawn. Dont waste your time looking at something that is not going to make your lawn care easy. Here is a list of things to consider when looking for a lawnmower: 1. The grass type. Basically if you have coarse grass with a lot of large weeds you are going to need a lawnmower that can chop the weeds just as easily as it cuts the grass. 2. The amount of land you have to be mowed. If you have several acres of land you more than likely will not be happy with a push mower and you will not be able to use an electric mower and have the yard completed in one day.
Electric lawnmowers also do not require tuning or oil changes. They are also silent compared to most roaring gas mowers. Electric mowers are powered using a plug and draw their energy from an electrical outlet. In this way using an electric lawn mower is just like using a vacuum cleaner in your home. However like with a vacuum cleaner electric mowers have the problem of dragging a cord behind. Sometimes the cord is not long enough to get where you need to go so you have to stop your work and switch. This can be a hassle. The good news is there is a new brand of cordless electric mowers out now which use a rechargeable battery.
Besides range petrol-powered mowers are also much more powerful and versatile than other varieties of mowers as mentioned previously. With the petrol mowers you are getting a serious piece of machinery. The the purist and lawn mower enthusiasts nothing but a petrol lawn mower will do because they are the genuine article. While electric and cordless lawn mowers cannot cut through wet or rough grass the petrol powered ones can. Also if the grass is infrequently cut it can grow long and wild. A petrol mower can easily tame the laid-back landscapers biggest horror but other mower types simply can not. In addition to the benefits mentioned above petrol lawn mowers often have an extension for mulching grass after it is cut. This means that instead of throwing your grass clippings in the garbage they can be used as compost which will add a great variety of nutrients to any future soil you wish to mix with the compost. Without a doubt petrol-powered machines can have a positive green effect and provide you with a lot of joy and pleasure while you are mowing your lawn.
