What’s The Difference Between A Petrol Mower And A Rotary Petrol Mower?

A petrol mower is one that is fitted with a petrol engine, it can use several different methods to cut the grass. Alternatives are mains electric – with a long cable, and battery electric.

Rotary mowers are usually the type that has a blade rotating on a vertical shaft. They cut the grass by the speed of the blade and can be used for quite long grass.
The other type is usually called a cylinder mower. This has a horizontal shaft carrying twisted blades that cut in a scissor type action against a stationery blade. This type generally produces a finer finish.

What’s The Best Type Of Lawnmower For Tough Grass On An Uneven Surface?

I’ve had very limited success with hover-mowers, and metal bladed rotary mowers.
I’ve never tried a cylinder mower, but I suspect it would be better able to handle the tough conditions of my back garden.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
