Believe it or not, choosing the right lawnmower can make your life easier and cut your lawn chores by at least half — no puns. -The type of lawnmower you choose will depend on your lawn and workload what you want to do on that lawn.
While lawnmowers come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and prices, knowing what you want to buy before you start your search can save you time and effort.
Here are some different types of lawnmowers that you may need to consider for yourself:
• Push Lawnmowers:
This is the most economical way to buy a lawnmower, but they also require the most labor intensive operation. As the name suggests, you have to push the lawnmower to cut the grass. The most basic push lawnmower has a relatively small deck, which is the base of the lawnmower, equipped with blades, and determines the area of the blade to cut grass. Some are as small as 17 inches wide.
A smaller cutting deck requires going back and forth across your lawn several times, so you may need to use a push mower that is wider than a normal cutting deck. Another factor to consider for push lawn mowers is whether the wheel height is adjustable. If you get the cheapest push lawn mower, it probably has a fixed wheel height. While this may not seem like a big deal to you, you should know that certain grasses work better when mowed from a certain height. In addition, if you have adjustable wheels, you can determine how low the grass is mowed, and therefore how often the grass is mowed.
• Self-propelled lawnmowers:
These lawnmowers look like regular push lawnmowers, but they have a push level that makes the lawnmower self-propelled. Then just grab and walk behind the lawnmower. This feature is very good as it saves you the hassle of pushing and pulling and allows you to mow the lawn with minimal effort. Most self-propelled lawn mowers have adjustable wheels, but like push mowers, you need to determine the width of the cutting deck you need.
• Ride-on mowers:
These are the most expensive types of lawn mowers, but if you live on large tracts of land, a ride-on mower is the only way out. These lawnmowers are powered by you, so you only have to drive on the lawn while the blades are working. They have variable speeds, so you can cut the grass slowly or quickly, depending on what you want to do and where you cut the grass. Like other lawnmowers, ride-on mowers have different deck sizes, although the smallest deck size is usually still very wide.
Mowing the lawn has never been an interesting task, but it is still a task that needs to be completed. By choosing the right lawnmower for your specific needs, you can reduce your lawn mowing time on the weekend and have more time to do other things you want to do on the weekend; like relax.
