The rational choice of the lawn mower provides for the linking of its technical and functional characteristics with the features of the site where the grass will be mowed and user preferences. To do this, we recommend creating a table, in one column of which there will be criteria set by you (personal preferences and conditions of the site), in the second – the compliance of the lawn mower characteristics with these parameters, for example, “1 – yes” and “0 – no”, in the third – their weight, characterizing individual significance for you. The most significant factors will have a maximum weight – the coefficient of multiplication of points.
How to Choose a Lawnmower
On a note:
For the lawn mower to serve for many years, it is better not to save money and buy a unit with a brand-name engine. In which case it is easier to repair and find parts. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions, use a special brand-name engine oil. Clean and dry lawn mower after work. And then the tool will serve you faithfully for many years!
Garden design chosen by the owners; the area, the shape of the perimeter, the relief of the site; plants growing on it, placed decorations, functional zones, ornateness of the tracks – all this makes each personal plot unique. But whatever your garden is, there is always a plot under the emerald lawn. And as you know, the lawn also needs care.
Types of lawn mowers How to choose the right lawn mower? First you need to understand the functional differences between lawn mowers and similar garden and park equipment: trimmers and motokos. Often, the owners of suburban real estate do not see a significant difference between this equipment, which is fraught with errors when choosing equipment.
- The lawn mower is a medium-sized and power-moving garden equipment for mowing grass on a flat landscape.
- Trimmer – a low-power mechanism designed to be carried in the hands, consisting of a cutting element, a rod and an engine. The trimmer is used in the event that it is necessary to cut the grass on an uneven surface, in hard-to-reach places and near plantings. This device is usually used for processing relatively small areas. Or for the remaining areas where the lawnmower did not pass.
So, we decided that the lawn mower is the best option for areas with a flat landscape and simple geometry.
Among the lawn mowers there are both traditional models working on gasoline that have stood the test of time, and still exotic battery powered lawn mowers. All of them have their own advantages and disadvantages, which should be remembered in the selection process.
Pay attention to the volume of the fuel tank (for petrol models) manufacturers usually limit the time resource of continuous operation of the engine, after which it requires a break for cooling. Electric models, depending on the power, are recommended to stop after 15–30 minutes from the moment of launch.
