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.
You will have to leave the cutting on the ground unless you wish to bag them to keep the newly cut lawn looking uncluttered. Like with reel/cylinder mowers the majority of these would be of very little use on commercial lawns but for a compact home lawn theyre ideal. Hover - Hover mowers are energized rotary push lawn mowers that make use of a turbine engine over the rotating blades to force air down so to produce an air cushion lifting the mower above the ground. Hover mowers are excellent for massive commercial lawns parks and fields and even for excessive grass areas. They are also equipped excellently to cut things such as shrubs due to their ability to hover. Ride-on (also known as riding or lawn tractors) - These are typically really popular for substantial commercial lawns school fields and parks. The person working with the mower can sit atop it operating the mower and literally riding it. Nearly all riding mowers use the horizontal (reel) rotating blade system accompanied by a lot of blades.
It also adds more to your safety. Like any gas lawn mower a self-propelled model needs regular cleaning as well as maintenance. They are noisy enough and require hearing protection. They are the most expensive mower type that is most apt to need repairs. Safety is also a concern. Emissions are another major concern for both global warming and air pollution. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that gas mowers emit air pollution. You can minimize emissions by simply selecting a mower with an engine that can meet emissions standards of the CARB: California Air Resources Board.
Since the safety mechanisms of robotic lawn mowers are integrated into the mowers computer they are difficult to bypass. Some robotic lawn mowers like LawnBott utilize touch handles that work similar to touch lamps. By merely touching the handle the blade stops spinning in an instant. All robotic mowers have lift detectors that stop the blade when lifted or flipped over. Other safety features include PIN codes bump sensors that detect objects left in the yard and the ability to run during night hours are all among the palette of safety features that traditional lawn mowers couldnt dream of.
