This solves the problem of lugging a cord around your yard. Cordless electric mowers use 1 to 4 rechargeable 12-volt batteries. Most are more expensive than both gas mowers and electric mowers with a cord but there are some cheaper options out there. Plus you are not having to spend money on gas or maintenance so youll save in the long-run. Depending on what model you get cordless electric mowers may also come with a mulch plate. The plate is handy because it allows you to use the mower to mulch your grass in addition to just cutting it. Check to see if the cordless electric mower you are interested in comes with this feature. If you are interested in getting an electric mower be it cordless or not be sure to check customer reviews. Since these mowers are relatively new on the market it is difficult to say what types of problems they may face over time. The best way to find out about these is to hear what actual owners are saying.
The starting mechanism varies but normally requires no more than the pulling of a handle to start. There are none of the reliability problems that have come to be associated with starting gas mowers. Another issue relates to emissions. Although the engines of gas powered lawn mowers may be relatively small compared with those of cars they are responsible for significant pollution. In fact some studies suggest that using a gas powered mower for an hour is equivalent to driving for 100 miles in terms of the emissions produced. Cordless lawn mowers do not produce any emissions directly but of course cannot be considered to emission free as the power station producing the electricity to charge it will produce some emissions. Overall however the net contribution to pollution is smaller. Overall unless you have a very large area to mow I think that cordless lawn mowers offer considerable advantages over their gas powered counterparts and should be a consideration for anyone in the market for a new mower.
These mowers operate like a bulldozer or tank in the way they can turn right back on themselves. Even though bulldozers and tanks use treads to control their movement and a zero turn lawn mower uses its rear wheels the principle is the same. By varying the amount and direction of drive power applied to each wheel you can control the movement of the machine. For example if both rear drive wheels on the mower are moving forward at the same speed the lawn mower will go forward in a straight line. If one wheel moves a little slower than the other the lawn mower will roll in the direction of the slower going wheel. And if you want the mower to roll in half circle just make one wheel turn backwards as the other moves forward. Normally zero turn lawn mowers have two rear drive wheels linked to hydrostatic transmission which is what transforms the engines power into hydraulic pressure.
Did you know that there is a more environmentally friendly way to cut your grass than your common gas mower? Like the increasingly popular electric cars electric lawn mowers also exist and can significantly reduce your carbon footprint. Electric lawn mowers are new on the market but are growing in popularity. These new electric lawn mowers are all push mowers and are ideal for smaller yards. They are much better for the environment easy to clean and they wont cost you a fortune on gas. And though electric lawn mowers are currently not available as riding mowers these will probably be on the market in no time.
