Lawn Care Equipments Selection Guide – Riding Lawnmower

You probably know what it feels like – pushing your conventional push mower our lawn is larger than .25 acres! For those with larger lawns, they should seriously consider purchasing a reactor-type lawnmower. It is relatively easy to operate and can cover medium to large lawns far quicker than the conventional push lawnmowers.

There are electric models for your lawn mower as well as the standard push mowers that everybody has seen. With powerful batteries, such designs can last for half an acre before it runs out of power and needs to be re-energized. These electric models are really quiet, good for the environment and don’t produce any noxious fumes. They lack the horsepower of the gasoline operated models and might run the hassle of being trapped in bushier places.

If you are a professional lawn care specialist, you might want to look into models that have reel blades that cut out in front. The rotary type is good if there isn’t a golf link to mow. The mowing blades are usually found below the deck below the seat and can give you some vibration. A good seat with plenty of cushion, however, won’t bother you.

You can find smaller riding mowers that will work with your lawn as well. The designs are basically the same as the bigger ones. The capacity and the size of the machine will be the main difference. You will always want more horsepower with your mower, but if you have a well-built machine, it won’t need as much horsepower to do a great job.

You do not really need much horsepower if your yard is flat and even. If you have a very hilly area, however, you will need a lot more. If you have a lot of hills, a lawn tractor will be your better choice.

A lawn tractor will have 10-15 horsepower and can work well. Considering that a car has 150 ‘ 300 horsepower, it seems that it’s a lot less energy, but you don’t need that much. You will pay more for more horsepower, just like with a car. Make sure you really need it first.

Prices will go up if you have a mower that can cut a bigger area. Lawn tractor blades usually cut between 38 ‘ 42 inches and can cut the lawn quicker. But you will probably be only able to cut your lawn 10% more quickly and the mower might be a lot more inaccurate.

You can get a garden tractor with 20 horsepower and up to 60″ mowing blades for a powerful, efficient machine. If you need to haul dirt or tree parts with an attached trailer, you can use this more efficiently.

You will want to look at the turning radius of the mower you are about to buy too. If you have a very low or even zero degree turning radius, it will cost a lot more. If you don’t have a lawn that is difficult to negotiate, you probably won’t need it.

The Quiet and Efficient Electric Lawnmower.

There really are very few reasons to choose a petrol lawnmower these days, in fact the only really good one I can think of is if you want to stay fit. If you do get a manual lawnmower and use people power, cheaper than a workout at the gym and just as effective.

Maintaining a good healthy lawn, requires pretty regular trimming, make sure that your lawnmower cuts to a really good length. You’ll find that anything over 3 inches tends to look a little unkempt, I always keep mine at 2 inches which looks great. Make sure your lawnmower can cut to this lentgh not all can – I’m looking at you hover mowers !

The best electric lawnmower have a decent amount of cable allowing you to reach all areas of your lawn. If your lawn is very long and awkward – say with loads of trees or large shrubs on it, then you should think twice and perhaps narrow your choices. An electric lawnmower with a cable is not usually a problem unless you have a situation like above. A few trees in the lawn can make it much more difficult to cut the lawn as the cable tends to get snagged a lot.

In this case I’d advice looking at the battery operated lawnmowers such as the Bosch LI range or going back to a simple petrol mower. The battery mowers are wonderful to use but you will find them a little more expensive than the standard electric lawnmower.

Here’s some reasons to buy an electric lawnmower.

1) Cleaner : they really are much cleaner and more environmental friendlier. You may be surprised to hear that some 2 stroke petrol lawnmower are generating up to three times as much pollution as a car!

2) Your ears : the noise level of your average electric lawnmower is much less that a petrol mower. In fact in some areas resident committees and associations have banned the use of petrol mowers in order to cut down on noise polution in their areas.

3) Easier to look after – the routine maintenance of electric mowers is very simple. Just maintain the blades by sharpening and keeping them clean and lubriacted and thats all you need to do. The mower will start quickly and easily and there’s no pre-flight check that you sometimes feel you need with petrol mowers !
