Choosing the Right Lawn Mower is an important decision for any home owner. Before buying a Lawn Mower, it is important to understand the different types of Lawn Mowers available in the market. But before buying one, you should always consider the weight, safety features, price and handling convenience of the model.


If you want a right Lawn Mower for your backyard then these are the basic facts that you should consider and remember before buying it:

  • How big is your lawn?
  • What type of grass the lawns have? Is the grass thick, sparse or faux?
  • How much you want to spend on your Mower?
  • What is the location or terrain of your lawn?
  • How many times do you mow your lawn? Is it daily, weekly or monthly?

It is also important to assess how much effort you can put physically into mowing the lawn. This is because sometimes health doesn’t allow us to work much so for that you can buy a Riding Mower.


Types Of Lawn Mowers:

  • The Reel or Manual Lawn Mower is the basic and least expensive Lawn Mower; it has series of blades that cute the grass like Rolling Shears. It is best for the look of the lawn but it is tough to work with it if your lawn is big and grass is thick.
  • Reel Mowers powered by gas engines are expensive and heavy; they are mostly used in professional yards.
  • The other type of Lawn Mower is Gas Powered Rotary Mower. It has a safety handle that prevents the movement of blades till both handles are held at the same time and a starter that starts only when two buttons are pressed simultaneously.
  • The next is Rotary Mowers, they can be used on thick grass and they are good to work on the lawns which are less than 20000 square feet in dimensions.
  • Electric Lawn Mowers are run by electricity; they are light and limited by the length of their wire and usually narrower than gas powered Mowers.
  • Battery Powered Mowers, they are heavy and one charged battery can cut 5000 square feet of lawn.
  • For large areas, you can use a Ride on Lawn Mower ; they can cut a large lawn because the swath is wider in it.

Attachments Of Mower:

  • Plow blades
  • Head lights
  • Windshields
  • Powerful engines
  • Small truck for Riding Mowers
  • CD players
  • Drink holders

Now if you can answer the basic questions regarding requirement of the lawn mower and evaluate the different types & attachments as per your need then you can surely arrive at the right choice to Buy Lawn Mower that is perfect for you.
