Different types of lawn mowers for sale
Just as there are many different types of lawns, there are many different types of lawn mowers that can accommodate your landscaping and gardening needs. When deciding what garden tools and supplies you will need for your landscaping pursuits, you must first assess your lawn conditions as well as your personal preferences.
Large, sprawling lawns can be a hassle to maintain by yourself if you do not have the proper gardening tools and equipment to manage it. While you can get yourself a powerful lawn mower that is both strong and durable to handle the job, it can be strenuous on a person to maintain a large lawn with a lawnmower that they must push and manoeuver themselves. In this case ride on lawn mowers for sale are a great solution to this problem.
Ride on lawn mowers also known as lawn tractors, give you convenience and ease when having to cover a large amount of area. With a ride on lawn mower you won’t have to push a heavy machine around to get the same or better quality results.
Ride on lawnmowers often offer more power and torque than a typical push mower. The downside with these mowers is the high prices of ride on lawnmowers for sale but the versatility of a ride-on lawnmower and a nice cushioned back on the job may be worth the price tag!
Remember, lawn mower prices vary according to the brand as well as the type of lawnmower you choose.
A petrol or electric lawn mower?
Most lawn mowers also come with the option electric or petrol. The choice depends on your lawn and the gardening conditions that you have at hand.
Electric lawn mowers are powered through a cord connection to an outlet. These mowers require little maintenance and are relatively easy to manoeuver- that is, within the range of motion allowed by the length of the cord. Electric lawnmowers work best when your lawn is at its best. Electric lawnmowers typically do not have as much torque as a petrol lawnmower, so high, unruly grass can be overly demanding on an electric lawnmower. Electric lawnmowers are great for smaller lawns, in areas that you will have cord access, and for a lawn that you intend to keep well. Electric lawnmowers are also generally cheaper than petrol lawnmowers.
A petrol lawn mower is stronger, offering more torque for bigger landscaping jobs. The extra power offered by petrol lawnmowers allows you to take on a larger range of gardening jobs – if you’re not able to tend to your grass for a few weeks, a petrol lawnmower should be able to handle it.
Another great plus of the petrol lawnmower is that you are not reliant on a power source. You will be able to move about your lawn without the confines of a cord. However, petrol lawnmowers require a certain level of care – much more than any other garden tool you have in your shed. Petrol lawnmowers require gasoline to function.
Due to its ability to conquer large jobs, you must maintain the engine and service the lawnmower whenever necessary. This can add up to extra costs and frustration when your trusty lawnmower fails to start. However, the extra power and freedom of movement make this option highly desirable.
