If youre looking for an economical lawn mowing solution thats safe hassle free and environmentally friendly then an electric lawn mower might be what you need. An alternative to traditional gasoline powered lawn mowers these modern mowers are powered by electricity either directly via an electric cord (corded electric lawn mowers) or by a rechargeable battery unit (cordless electric lawn mowers) housed within the mower deck. When looking to purchase an electric mower there a number of factors you should consider as outlined in this article. Consider Your Yard Size The first thing you should consider is your yard size.
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.
By removing the person this alone eliminates most causes of lawn mower injuries. Robotic lawn mowers are unlikely to clog. Take it from someone who has been an exclusively user of robotic lawn mowers for over 7 years - robotic mowers mow frequently and chop grass fine enough that the likelihood of clumps forming under the mower (or anywhere for that matter) are eliminated. But even if you attempt to lift the mower while it is operating the blade will immediately stop spinning. However if the blade(s) were to get snagged onto something the robotic lawn mowers computer is smart enough to shut down the blade(s) and signal for help.
Alternatively you can purchase reel mowers which have revolving blades that will flash over a fixed blade as they do the cutting. You can select these two kinds of mowers as either gasoline-dependent models or manual human-powered models. The rotary lawn mowers use the protective housing to prevent the grass from shooting out at you as the rotating blade does its job. It also keeps the circulating blade itself from suddenly flying out at you should it break loose from its fastenings sometime during the mowing job. That is why the protective housing is often manufactured of hefty metal with a painted finish to prevent rust damage. The reel mowers (which are hand-operated and not automated) are perfect if you want to enjoy the physical benefits of exercise.
