There are four main types of electric lawn mowers available on the market each with their own unique selling points to meet the needs of most gardeners. Due to a need for a main electric power source some lawn mowers are restricted in their range by the length of the extension cord but are ideal for small-to-medium lawns. Using electric mowers are more environmentally friendly because they are more energy efficient and do not emit pollution to the environment. When operating an electric lawn mower there is less noise pollution coming from the garden mower in comparison with the gas powered garden mowers.
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.
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.
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.
