Are there any Advantages to Cordless Lawnmowers ?

When people talk about cordless lawnmowers, they usually mean the kind that are powered by a battery. These are called cordless electric lawnmowers, and they are usually powered by one to four 12 volt batteries that are usually rechargeable.

The amount of batteries usually dictates how long your lawnmower is capable of cutting grass before recharging. This is one thing to keep in mind when buying an electric cordless lawnmower. Electric cordless lawnmowers can be somewhat more expensive than their corded counteparts.

However, in the long run you might actually end up saving money as you won’t have to buy petrol or oil. For example, the Rotak 43 LI cordless lawnmower sells at around £350 and is capable of cutting with the same power as a corded lawnmower. This lawnmower also recharges quickly, thanks to its innovative lithium-ion battery.

A cordless electric lawnmower, like the Rotak 43 LI, is perfectly suitable for lawns between 300 and 600 square metres in size. The greatest benefits of corded electric lawnmowers are the lack of smell, much quieter sound and the fact that it doesn’t have a cord, which can be quite a hassle with conventional electric lawnmowers. The Bosch Rotak models have gathered numerous extremely positive feedbacks on sites such as Amazon, and it’s no wonder because these lawnmowers are so far ahead of their competitors’ choices. If, however, your lawn is bigger than 600 square metres, you should consider buying a corded electric lawnmower, such as the Bosch Rotak 40. This powerful lawnmower is an excellent choice for medium to large lawns.

Daniel Jones is an expert in internet marketing, and has a keen interest in environmentally friendly lawnmowers such as the Bosch Rotak 40.

Electric Lawnmowers: The Future In Lawncare

The mower was invented in the 1830s in Englnad to replace the scythe in preparing cricket pitches and tennis. From this it evolved into the number one tool lawn.
  If you replace your lawn with Artificial (and for me that makes much sense, but I know I'm in the minority here) you'll still spend some time in your week to mow your lawn. Grass is beautiful when its 3 to 4 inches long, but after that it starts to look neglected. Your home is your biggest investment and it reflects your personality. . . and your lawn is the first part of your house that everyone can see forever.
  There are several types of lawn mowers on the market, encouraging the most rudimentary grass for the most sophisticated models of remote control, the result of over a hundred years of evolution lawnmower.
  Lawn mowers have been in existence since the 1830s, when an independent engineer in Gloucestershire, England under the name of Edwin Beard Budding taken a patent on the mechanism, and he entered mass production in the 1850s. Lawnmowers first hand-powered. The steam first lawnmower was released in 1893, and in 1930, the engine lawnmower petrol motor came on the market, and has finished.
  But gasoline engines are powerful, and they need some strength and technique to start. Et. . they are of the essence! There are a couple of solutions.
  For smaller lawns, lawn push the work to a feast. It's all muscle-power, if you get plenty of exercise out of it.
  For the lawn a little larger, the electric motor works very well. It is necessary for them to be plugged into an electrical outlet, and you'll be leaving behind a cord behind you. It is therefore imperative that you use care with these types of clippers so you do not run the cord and cut accidentally.
  Cordless electric mowers are available. Black & Decker makes a few models, as does Makita.
  And mops as you can now get remote-controlled and vacuum cleaners, you'll soon be able to get a remote controlled lawnmower. Evatech is a company that has developed such a device. It will take all year to mow your lawn, but it will still much fun as you go through the use of hand controls.
  The advantages of electric clippers
  1. Noise. Quite simply, the gasoline engines are noisy and you must wear ear protection, even with the smallest of them. And regardless of your own ears, the noise can irritate your neighbors if you choose to do inappropriate work.
  2. Pollution. A gasoline engine emits 2-3 times more pollution than a car engine is!
  So the electric lawnmower is the mower of the future.

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 !
