How Should I Shop For Lawn Mowers?


These days, lawn mowers make cutting grass easier than ever. There's nothing like the smell of freshly cut grass, and thanks to the advances in technology, it's easier than ever to get, and enjoy, that smell.

Before heading to the store, though, take a look at the size of your backyard. Lawns that are more than 15-thousand square feet can justify the expense and prestige that comes with owning a riding mower, just make sure that you have somewhere to put it.

Riding mowers can vary in cost from affordable and budget friendly, to very high end, with all of the features to match. Your overall budget and mowing needs will determine whether you opt for manual transmission or an automatic transmission complete with adjustable seats, cruise control and an array of attachments.

The John Deere LA115 can cut lawns up to 1.5 acres and its highlights include even cutting, ease of use and excellent bagging. Some of the conveniences of this mower include automatic transmission, headlights and an adjustable seat.

You need to look at buying lawn mowers as a long-term investment since with a mower, $100 can mean the difference between getting simply an acceptable mower and a really great one. Consumer reports says that some of the top mowers are Honda, Toro, Husqvarna and Lawn Boy while John Deere is one of the top brands of riding mowers.

Engine horsepower is really less of a concern today since mowers with just a 5.5 horsepower can perform just as well as those models that have stronger engines. For smaller lawn areas you should not ignore zero-turn or walk-behind lawn mowers.

While it may be tempting to go to the big home improvement stores when the time comes to buy a new mower, it's worth the time to shop around, especially to lawn mower dealers since you're likely to get a higher level of service. And if your mower ever needs new equipment or needs to be repaired, you can take it straight to the dealer.

Toro has even been known to match prices that are being offered by competitors. If you're going to be doing your shopping online, be prepared to pay for the cost of shipping with your new mower. Electric mowers are likely to be the best online purchase since they are smaller, lighter and easier to ship.

Choosing the Right Riding Mower

By Steven Blades
For most homeowners in the United States, the classic rotary lawn mower is more than enough for them to get their yard looking picture perfect. However, there are some homeowners who have yards that, simply put, are far too big for them to cut with the conventional rotary motor. Back in the day, before the advent of the mechanical lawn mower, homeowners who had lots of land on their property turned to nature's creatures to keep their grass nice and tidy.

Read How An Automatic Lawn Mower Will Mow Your Holiday Home Lawn Safely Without You Being There

By Janet Cross
Holiday homes are becoming more and more popular and, as air travel becomes more and more stressful, they will be easier to rent out. But who looks after the lawn? The answer is an automatic lawn mower. If the smallest automatic lawn mower is used (for a lawn no larger than 400 sq metres) the grass will always be cut if you can get a friendly neighbour to come in, press a button on the mower to get it working and then return a few hours later to put the mower away. These robots are so small that lifting one is no problem. If a larger model is needed the mower will come and go on its own, mowing, going back to the charging station, and mowing again. Then no neighbour's help is needed.
