The trick to choosing the right mower is matching the machine to your budget, yard size and power preference. We have a wide selection of trusted brands that will help you create a beautifully manicured lawn. Let us help you pick the best mower for your needs.
Depending on the type of lawn you have, there are certain mower options that will work better for you. Here are a few reference points to help clarify.
Known for their strong performance, gas-powered lawn mowers are recommended for cutting through tall, thick grass and are ideal for large lawns.
A self-propelled gas lawn mower can reduce mowing time and fatigue by eliminating the strain of pushing the mower. This can be a wise choice if you have health concerns or don't want to stay out in the sun too long.
Three self-propelled systems are available:
Electric lawn mowers are lightweight, effortless to start and easy to maintain. They're ideal if each corner of your yard can be reached with a 100' extension cord.
Cordless mowers are convenient because you aren’t limited by a cord and you avoid the necessary maintenance of gas engines.
A manual reel lawn mower is an environmentally friendly choice that is also economical, lightweight, and requires very little maintenance. The scissor-like blade action from this model provides a closer, more high-quality cut than gas or electric lawn mowers.
Brushless is a motor technology that is available on select cordless models. Since brushless motors don’t have wearable brushes, these motors result in less friction meaning less heat and higher efficiency.
Oil and gasoline are added separately; no pre-mixing required.
CC is the size of the engine on a gas mower.
This engine design is more efficient and offers longer valve life as well as better fuel economy.
The larger the deck, the wider the cutting swath and the quicker the job gets done. But remember that the wider your mower, the harder it will be to manoeuvre around shrubs and other obstacles.
Not to be confused with a manual mower, this is a gas-powered mower that is not self-propelled.
Also known as a manual mower.
Experienced gardeners know that mulching is one of the best things you can do for your soil and your plants. Organic mulches, such as grass clippings, help improve the soil by adding organic matter as they decompose. This helps suppress weeds. It also helps to conserve moisture, thereby reducing evaporation and preventing soil erosion.
A mulching lawn mower cuts your grass into fine clippings and leaves them on your lawn to decompose. This not only saves you the trouble of raking or bagging the clippings, it reduces the number of times you'll have to water your lawn.
This collects grass clippings, which may be used for composting, and provides the look of a well-manicured lawn. A rear-bag mower is narrower and therefore easier to manoeuvre than a side-bag mower.
A side discharge ensures that grass clippings are dispersed onto the law. These are best for lawns with few obstacles and ideal for cutting high grass.
