Mower deck size or cutting width is a good feature to consider prior to purchasing. Wider deck sizes increase efficiency by allowing the user to finish mowing in fewer passes. While shopping our selection of mowers either in-store or online, you will find deck sizes ranging from 14-28 inches.
A mower’s power source should also be considered during the buying process. Our selection includes three types of mowers: push, electric, and gas-powered. Each type has pros and cons as well as different price points and maintenance needs. Push mowers, or reel mowers, feature horizontally fixed blades arranged helically. These mowers require manual power and cut grass like a scythe as the tool is pushed forward. Push mowers are incredibly quiet, emission free, and easy to store. Electric mowers are also emission free which is just one reason they have increased in popularity. While they are not as quiet as a push mower, they produce far less noise than their gas-powered counterparts. Electric mowers operate via plug-in power or battery. Battery-powered units offer more freedom than corded, which often require the use of additional extension cords to reach all parts of the lawn. Finally, gas mowers continue to be a favorite simply due to their power. Gas mowers support larger deck sizes which, as we know, makes for faster cutting. This level of power also allows gas mowers to cut dense grasses and traverse more easily across uneven terrain.
Push and electric mowers will require little maintenance outside of blade sharpening or replacement and proper storage in a dry space. Gas mowers also need this type of maintenance as well as fuel replacement, stabilization, and filter replacement, among other items.
