Lawn Mower Categories
Here are three lawn mower engine types that you should be aware of and how they are started.
Electric and Battery-powered Mowers
A battery-powered mower needs no starting as you only need to push a button to get it working.
As the name suggests, it runs on a battery that is likely to run out on you before you finish working, and so the only way to avoid being stalled is by having a second pair handy.
If not, you would have to recharge it first, which would eat into your mowing time.
Electric mowers use electricity, and they work the same way as battery-powered ones, with the exception of the power source. You would need to work close to a charging port if it is corded.
These two are some of the easiest to start.
They have a push button at the front that is all you need to start.
They are quite easy to use and are ideal for the incapacitated as they are self-propelled. The downside of corded electric mowers is the fact that you will need to keep an eye at the cord so it not chopped by the blades.
They also have a push button for easy starting, and they won’t stop you from working as long as the tank is full.
They are ideal for large lawns, but the downside is in pollution.
Just like cars that use gasoline, they emit gases that harm the environment, which is why electric mowers are gaining popularity.
As per these thoughts, push mowers are the easiest to start as they don’t use an internal combustion engine.
They are however limiting as they require strength to push, which not everyone has. Gas, electric, and battery-powered mowers follow closely, as they all come with push buttons.
They have their shortcomings, but you will easily find one whose downsides you can live with.
These are the latest addition, and they are becoming popular by the day.
A robotic mower only needs you to mark its boundaries with a wire, and then press its button to get it started.
It needs no supervision, and if you are willing to dig a little deeper into your pockets, then you can buy one that knows its way to the charging port. Naturally, it is best for small lawns.
