The push mower will probably cover any garden size in-between. The second thing to look at is the lay of your land. Is the terrain flat sloped or steep? Lawn mowers with larger rear wheels or even rear-wheel drive are better for sloped and irregular lawns. The other choice to consider is a front-wheel drive self-propelled mower which is perhaps best for expansive flat acreage. The final consideration is landscaping ornamentation and obstacles. If you have numerous trees bushes or perhaps a pond look for a lawn mower with ease in maneuverability. Clippings and Cuttings Other things to consider when selecting a mower are the type and height of the grass the amount of moisture in your grass if you are in a low-lying area and any other organic material you may encounter such as twigs or pine cones.
They are also heavier and louder than the above-mentioned mowers. Gasoline powered mowers can be used on lawns up to 1 acre in size with any type of grass and no matter how rough your lawn. The only thing that stops this type of mower from doing any size lawn is how much walking you are willing to do. For lawns that are one acre or larger you should look into a self-propelled mower. You will also need to choose between a two-cycle or four-cycle engine. Four-cycle engines run on regular gasoline two-cycle engines require that you mix special oil with the gasoline.
Overall every major kind of mower has distinct benefits and loss. Self Propelled Gas Lawn Mower Generally a self-propelled gas mower is moved by its motor without being pushed. It can be front-wheel drive or rear-wheel-drive: single speed or variable speed: and some may have cruise control. Recommended for half an acre lawns the self-propelled mowers cut more evenly as compared to other kinds of mowers for lawns. They can start with an electric switch. Another high-end feature is a blade override. This stops the blade without cutting the motor. It means that you can stop a self propelled mower to empty the bag or to pick up objects without restarting the engine.
