Electric lawn mowers are a lot more popular than you might think. Electric lawn mowers are great because they are light efficient and environmentally friendly. "Does it come with someone who will do the mowing?" Not exactly but that seems to be all that this Black & Decker MM875 Lawn Hog 12 Amp 19-Inch Electric Mulching Mower with rear bag lacks. The reliable electric start motor will not allow make enough work for you to develop a coveted "six pack" abdomen either. Environmentalists will love these electric lawn mowers with purring motor that is soothing rather than ear splitting like power lawn mowers of the past.
The starting mechanism varies but normally requires no more than the pulling of a handle to start. There are none of the reliability problems that have come to be associated with starting gas mowers. Another issue relates to emissions. Although the engines of gas powered lawn mowers may be relatively small compared with those of cars they are responsible for significant pollution. In fact some studies suggest that using a gas powered mower for an hour is equivalent to driving for 100 miles in terms of the emissions produced. Cordless lawn mowers do not produce any emissions directly but of course cannot be considered to emission free as the power station producing the electricity to charge it will produce some emissions. Overall however the net contribution to pollution is smaller. Overall unless you have a very large area to mow I think that cordless lawn mowers offer considerable advantages over their gas powered counterparts and should be a consideration for anyone in the market for a new mower.
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.
People often think of buying a robotic lawn mower purely for the convenience of not having to mow your own lawn. However mulching is just another one of the many benefits of robotic lawn mowers. Traditional gas or electrically powered mulching lawn mowers require a more powerful engine than standard mowers and therefore use extra energy to create the mulched clippings. Robotic lawn mowers run on rechargeable batteries and therefore offer considerable savings to both the owner and the environment over these other types of mowers. RoboMowers and Lawnbotts are the most popular types of robotic lawn mowers available and both provide good mulch although by different methods.
