Electric Lawn Mower Reviews

If reel mowers were the first generation then electric mowers can be called the third generation of push behind mowers. Gas mowers naturally become the second generation. As with any new generation of machinery, there are always a lot of advantages over previous generations.

An electric mower operates on electricity, either drawn from a power source or from batteries carried on its body. The motor converts this electric power into mechanical energy driving the blades at high speeds and at times powering the wheels too. The effectiveness and efficiency of electric mowers is actually the highest among all types of push mowers. Take a look at our electric lawn mower reviews and find one that fits your needs.

A Few Things to Think About Before Buying an Electric Lawn Mower

3-in-1 ClippingSelf-PropelledWarrantyVariable SpeedCord Vs. Cordless
Many new units let you decide how to handle grass clippings. Choose a mower that gives you this ability so that you can decide when to mulch, discharge or bag cut grass.
Electric mowers can help you in mowing a large lawn by delivering a fraction of the motor’s power to the wheels. They can move at variable speeds in the range of 1/3 to 5 mph. Furthermore, you can decide on either a rear or front wheel drive based on the terrain. Rear wheel goes best with slopping surfaces while front wheel drive works well on flat terrains. Moreover, rear wheel usually cuts through tough grass quicker and more efficiently. However, self propulsion can increase the weight by an extra 20 to 30 pounds.
Read carefully what the warranty covers. Usually additional accessories or components do not fall under the warranty. Only the frame and motor comes under extended warranty.
Having the ability to adjust your speed or even the cutting speed of the blades is an excellent option. It lets you operate more carefully around obstacles like planting beds and trees. Moreover, when you want to quicken the pace out in the open, you can switch to the highest speed.
Electric mowers either come with a battery or a cord. Both have their advantages and disadvantages but at the end of the day it is your decision. If you have to move far away from a power source, a cordless works best. However, corded versions tend to cost less and provide greater power.
