However there are significant difference between the various brands and models even down to which is more eco-friendly. If you have been thinking about investing in one of these lawn-friendly/time-friendly automatic mowers or are just encountering them for the first time we encourage you to do some research to see if a robotic lawn mower is right for you. Reading reviews of the various makes and models will be very helpful in deciding which one is right for your particular type and size of lawn and for your own personal philosophy.
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.
Not too long ago I was at a local hardware store and overheard another customer talking to an employee about buying a new lawnmower for her husband. That is when it hit me not everyone knows how to buy a lawn mower. So I decided I was going to write a simple-to-read buying guide that was easy to follow but still informative enough that almost anyone can buy a mower that meets their needs. The first thing that needs to be told in this buying guide is not all lawn mowers are created equal. With this being said you need to understand that a cheap model is likely going to have a hard time cutting grass in a terrain that is not flat.
Although the presence of a clipping collection box does make them difficult to use under overhanging shrubs it also removes the hassle of having to rake up cuttings after mowing. Rear roller electric lawn mowers have a roller instead of wheels at the rear of the machine. The addition of a roller enables the gardener to create a striped effect in their lawn as the roller flattens the cut grass in front of it. Both four-wheeled and rear-roller electric mowers are ideal for use on rough and uneven ground. The fourth type of electric lawn mower available on the market is the electric cylinder mower. Here rather than using a rotary cutting movement that flails the grass and damaging the blades of grass the cylindrical cutting motion of the blades acts like a pair of shears as they meet the cutting edge of the machine. This creates a clean cut leaving the lawn less prone to dehydration and browning. Cylindrical lawn mowers are used by many professional gardeners and groundskeepers and are ideal for use on flat lawns where a short cut is required. A rear roller can also be attached to cylindrical mowers to achieve the striped lawn effect.
