Although don’t feel that this is essential as the clippings will do your lawn no harm at all.

Of course for anyone with an eco conscience then using a manual human powered lawn mower is far and away the best choice, have a look at the great range of manual lawnmmowers that are available now – manual lawnmower range

The Cub Cadet CC-500 BAT
  If you are looking for a power mower environmentally May you want to check out the Cub Cadet CC-500 BAT cordless electric mower. This mower is quiet and requires very little maintenance compared to a gas mower and is well built and functioning.

  The MTD Cub Cadet CC-500 is very handy thanks to ball bearings in the wheels that spin and roll much easier than many other models. The cutting height is easily adjustable with a lever and does not need adjustments to each wheel that some models do. The cutting blade is adjustable to seven different heights to cut an inch to three inches and a half. A lockout key prevents accidental starting of the mower.

This cordless electric mower is well built, but with slightly lower than the power of cutting Cub Cadet CC-500 BAT. It has an effective mulching system and operates more than the average cordless mower on a full charge.

However, if you have only a small area to mow, it will not be a problem, and for those seeking a more environmentally friendly with low maintenance mower Black and Decker CMM1200 is appropriate.
