Most home owners with electric lawn mowers say the primary reason for choosing electric was environmental consciousness. Experts say that mowing your lawn for about an hour with a regular gas powered mower causes more air pollution than driving a car for 150 miles. Electric mowers use substantially less energy to operate so there is much less drain on the environment. Another benefit to having an electric lawn mower versus gas run is that you wont have to worry about pulling away on a cord to get it started. Electric mowers are turned on with the push of a button.
Electric lawnmowers also do not require tuning or oil changes. They are also silent compared to most roaring gas mowers. Electric mowers are powered using a plug and draw their energy from an electrical outlet. In this way using an electric lawn mower is just like using a vacuum cleaner in your home. However like with a vacuum cleaner electric mowers have the problem of dragging a cord behind. Sometimes the cord is not long enough to get where you need to go so you have to stop your work and switch. This can be a hassle. The good news is there is a new brand of cordless electric mowers out now which use a rechargeable battery.
3. Are you going to want to have a bagging system on your mower? The bagging system allows the clippings from the lawn to be retained and then dumped where the mulching system allows the clippings to be spread back onto the lawn. This is a personal preference. However most bagging systems can be taken off of the mower to allow both features to be utilized. 4. What type of power are you looking for? Self propelled are the most popular because they are easier to maneuver around can go up slight hills or inclines with little effort from the person mowing the lawn.
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.
