Four-cycle engines are easier to use but two-cycle motors are typically quieter and more durable. Riding Lawn Mowers There are nearly as many types of riding mowers as there are walk-behind mowers. They come in classifications of lawn mowers (the smallest type) garden tractors (very large with many options) and zero turn lawn mowers. If your lawn is more than an acre in size you should consider purchasing a riding mower. This type of mower will save you a great deal of time and effort when mowing large lawns. If you have many trees or other obstacles in your yard to maneuver around you should consider a zero-turn type of riding mower. Only people with very large lawns and that do a lot of gardening and other heavy outdoor yard work would need to consider purchasing a garden tractor sized riding mower.
Reel/cylinder (horizontal axis) - Reel/cylinder mowers may be human-powered but they are often joined together with an internal combustion engine. As the most well liked commercial walk behind mowers (a lawn mower you push); the horizontal mower blade axis can make reel/cylinder mowers a superb all-rounder. Theyd be of little use on commercial lawns however for a small household lawn they are excellent. Rotary (vertical axis) - Vertical rotary blades are incredibly powerful and consequently typically they must be powered by an interior combustion engine. That said electric rotary mowers have grown to be ever more common. The primary down side to rotary mowers is because of the vertical axis they do not collect the grass cuttings.
Finally you should keep an eye on the battery and cables. Eliminate any corrosion if it starts to build up by using a damp rag. Corrosion can build up due to acid leaks from the battery. Cautions and Dangers Since riding mowers are larger than manual mowers this makes them more dangerous to operate. In a study released by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission common dangerous problems include mowers tipping over riders falling off the seat and riders being run over by the mower. Therefore to fully protect yourself and your family you should take the following precautions: Always read the owners manual first.
For most of the country lawn-mowing season is upon us leaving many homeowners with the age-old question "which type of lawn mower is best for my yard?" This question comes about because there are so many different types of yards and so many different types of mowers. We will discuss different types of lawn mowers and what types of lawns each of them fit the best. Manual Reel Lawn Mowers Manual reel mowers are great for very small lawns that are flat and relatively smooth. If you have a small flat lawn this could be the best type of mower for you. Reel mowers are lightweight because they do not have an engine there are few moving parts so they last a long time without the need for many repairs and they are quiet.
