Gone are the days when people had to strain their backs using hand-held grass shears and endure an unsatisfactory outcome. For decades, motor lawn mowers have evolved from the type worked by animals to the robotic cutting-edge design mowers that we have today.
Finally, decide whether or not you want a mulching Robotic lawn mower. These mowers have special blades that will continually chop up the blades of grass into tiny fragments. These fragments are returned to the ground where they decompose and act as a natural fertilizer. If you don’t mulch, you’ll probably want to bag, and that means catching the clipping and disposing of them. That’s a little more work for you.
If your lawn is under an acre you are probably looking for a regular walking Husqvarna mower. If your yard is really small and easy to mow, you might even want one of the manual push mowers. If the yard is tiny and you don’t want to mess with having to keep gas and oil in a motor, or emissions the manual mower is fine. If the yard is on the larger side you may choose a walking mower that is self-propelled, especially if the yard is hilly or has thick grass. For these types of yards you also want areal rear drive mower.
The size of your lawn is the single-most important factor in choosing between a push Husqvarna robot mower and riding mower. Generally speaking, if your lawn is less than 1\2 acre, you might do well with a push mower. Anything over 1\2 acre, you should seriously consider a riding mower. On lawns this size, the time it would take for you to mow with a 22-inch push mower could be cut in half using a 42-inch rider, giving you less lawn time and more wife time.
Every spring, you should have your lawnmower’s blades sharpened. Dull blades could damage your lawn and will cause the lawn mower to be less fuel-efficient. A damaged lawn and inefficient mower will also make you work much harder than you need to. It is a good idea to sharpen the lawn mower blades at lease once a month during the peak season.
Most people find front wheel self-propelled lawn mowers to be the best selection. These mowers are simple to control. They cost less than rear-propelled models.
It is quite easy to find out what mower will work for you by browsing lawn mower sales sites over the Internet. You may also have friends who are willing to share their experiences with their machines and equipment. Just do your homework and get to know the different types, look at pictures, before rushing to a store to buy one. It would also be smart to get it from a store which offers not just lawn mower sales, but service as well.
