The reel mowers of today are a lot easier to work with yet the basic design remains the same. Rotary mowers include the gas-powered or electric push mowers riding lawn tractors and the new robotic electric mowers. Most important in selecting a lawn mower is to match the mower to your lawn. Lawn Considerations In selecting a lawn mower the first criterion to evaluate is the size of your garden. If you have a garden that is a 1/2 acre or more your best choice may be a riding lawn mower. If "postage-stamp" describes the size of your garden then consider a reel mower.
The big difference is that riding tractors have cutting decks mounted in the middle rather than the front. Because of this riding tractors are much less maneuverable. Electric vs. Gas Powered Just like automobiles there are both gas and electrically powered riding lawn mowers. If you purchase an electric mower you always need to make sure that the battery is fully charged before using. Electric mowers are also quieter and more environmentally friendly. On the negative side since the mower runs on a battery there is always the concern that the battery will drain before the job is complete. Price-wise electric mowers can be quite expensive.
But if youre one of the people who dreads running over the cord itself and cutting it with the lawn mower blades or if you simply find electric cords a nuisance then you will like a cordless electric lawn mower. It has a portable power supply. You only need to charge it once daily for about 4 to 6 hours each time. (Depending on the power capacity of your electric engine the mower might need to charge for a few hours more or less.) A human-powered or push mower will be appropriate for running on sloping hilly yards. For ease of use get the front-propelled type of lawn mowers. If your yard is really big then you might find that you require a tractor-type of lawn mower. This is the type you can actually drive like a vehicle as you trim the grass in the yard. If youre in the market for a "green" product then we highly recommend Earthwise Lawn Mowers.
Modern electric mowers are very powerful and very efficient and they are quiet. They do not require much service or repair so they make a great choice for small flat yards although they can do large lawns. The drawback of this type of mower is the fact that they have to be connected to electricity via extension cords which you must drag with you as you mow. Gasoline Powered Walk- Behind Lawn Mowers This category of mowers has the most different types of mowers in the class making the choice of a mower more difficult. All of these mowers share the fact that they are powered by a gasoline engine which will require more maintenance than the mowers we have discussed to this point.
