A gas powered or corded electric lawn mower is what we usually use when working in our garden, and so if the next you buy and choose a cordless lawn mower, it could be challenging for you when making choices. Note that there a broad similarities as well as important differences between the traditional lawn mowers and the cordless lawn mowers, that before you decide to purchase a cordless unit you have to take into account these factors, and in this article we will present briefly.
The number one consideration that you have to factor in to check out what kind of lawn do you have, meaning you estimate the size of your lawn and if it is flat or slope.
As you are considering to purchase a new mower, check out the battery life of the mower as you have the idea of the size of the lawn. Know that the best cordless lawn mowers will cut, from a single charge, up to a third of an acre, although the battery life will slightly vary depending on how long is the grass, and whether it is wet or dry.
There is still a cordless mower to opt for even if the size of your lawn is larger than a third of an acre. Buying a model with a removable battery and then buy a second battery is the easiest way to address the above concern. Thus, with two batteries, you can easily swap them when one battery has lost its charge and have another one that is completely charged. Do not worry in the changing of batteries because this is an easy procedure.
Unlike gas powered lawn mowers which are self-propelled, most cordless lawn mowers are not, and so it is important to know if the lawn is flat or slope. The reason for this is that the slope will increase the strain on the batter of a cordless mower, that would significantly reduce the area you will be able to mow on one charge of the battery.
To compensate the above concern, cordless lawn mowers are made to be lighter than their heavy gas powered mower counterpart, and note that the heaviest part of the mower is the battery. Thus handling the cordless lawn mower will be pretty easy for you, although if you have a slope consider the weight if you find it an issue.
Many of the cordless lawn mowers have a feature of a 3 in1 ability, which refers to how it can dispose grass clippings which start from your choice of cutting the clippings into fine particles to make a mulch, then disperse it over the lawn, or simply dispose the clippings out from the side of the equipment to the lawn , or just collect the clippings in a bag from the rear just like the traditional method.
