How to Choose a Lawn Mower



A lawn mower is exactly what you need to make sure the lawn looks good all year round. If you havenít bought one or are planning to buy a new one, you need to know how to choose the right lawn mower for your home.

First, you have to compare what one brand has to offer over another by knowing the price, the weight and the safety features. While shopping, ask the sales person some questions, get a brochure and then look at reviews posted online.

You should also pay attention to the deck. If this is powered, meaning it runs on battery, electric or gas, find out what material is it made of. The best ones to get are those made of stainless steel but if this beyond your budget, you have no choice but to get one made of aluminum or plastic.

One thing that people donít tell you when choosing a lawn mower is to consider the terrain where the lawn mower will be used. If the terrain is light, then a reel mower is useful however if there is some rough terrain, you will need a high wheel mower.

When looking for a push on mower, it is best to get the kind that has scissor like action rotating blades which passes over a stationary knife because this is ideal for those who have a small lawn.

The cheapest ones in the market do not have a motor so it is quiet and non-polluting. Best of all, these are maintenance free. The only disadvantage is that you get this chore is very tiring and this has to be done regularly.

A great way to mow the land without feeling tired is to get one that is powered using batteries, gasoline or electricity. Among the three, gasoline has proven to be the best but these are noisy and not environment friendly.

You can choose from the 2 cycle or the 4 cycle gasoline powered lawn mower. Of the two, the four cycle gasoline consumes less fuel and does not pollute that much. This is operated by riding on top while some require you to stand up. For those who donít want to sit or stand, get one that is maneuvered by remote control.

If you donít want to deal with glass clippings, you can get a lawn mower that comes with a bag which collects it so can dispose of it easily. Another option is to get what is called a mulching mower which cuts the grass into small pieces and you can hardly see them.

For those who have bigger lawns, better get either an electric or gas powered rotary motor that has a circular blade under a protective housing. If pushing the mower is hard, get one that allows you to ride it.

The last thing to check before buying a lawn mower is the warranty. This will be useful if ever you have problems with the unit you bought.

There is a lawn mower for everyone and while some are faced with budget constraints, you will still be able to find one that is just as good as an expensive brand. If you havenít found one yet, try looking for these products online because they could be cheaper even if you add the shipping costs.
