Reviews are generally quite positive regarding these electric lawn mowers. One review did state the obvious which is to always make certain that the electric cord is kept out of the way of the cutting blades or the human mower may become a crispy critter. In many ways the Black & Decker LM175 18-Inch 6.5 Amp Electric Mower is similar to the MM875 above. It has a slightly less wide cutting path the option of bag or no bag. This electric mower is about 30 pounds lighter that the MM875 which many make it a bit easier for older children and smaller adults to handle with ease. One reviewer returned to the electric cord and the need to be aware of its position during mowing. This gentleman mentioned beginning at the electrical outlet and carefully working his way away from that point of origin.
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.
In the rear of riding mowers larger wheels are present to help prevent getting stuck in thick grass or in the mud. If you have a comparatively flat and small backyard you do not require a complicated mower. This information alone can actually save you thousands of dollars on purchase and maintenance. However youll need to choose an all wheel riding lawn mower if you own a hilly area. Mowers are available with multiple options for turning and steering. You can opt for the steering wheel or steering stick depending on which is most comfortable for you.
His additional comment was that trees bushes shrubs and others may entangle the electric cord and recommended increased awareness of the power cord in those situations. What will they think of next? A flip handle can you imagine? Yes indeed the flip handle electric mower reduces time and energy wasted in trying to turn the mower around to cut the next row of grass. This wonderful feature is found on the Black & Decker MM675 Lawn Hog 18-Inch 12 Amp Electric Mulching Mower Flip-Handle electric mower. This feature like the reduced weight of the LM175 makes mowing easier for older children or smaller adults who might otherwise struggle with a heavier mower that needs to be manually turned.
