With such a wide range of lawn mowers to choose from, selecting the right Lawn Mower for you and your garden can be difficult. We have provided a guide to each type of lawn mower in order to help make your selection as easy as possible.
Electric Rotary Mowers
Mains electric mowers are quiet, lightweight and easy to use. They are ideal for smaller gardens with a power supply located near the lawn. We recommend using a Residual Current Device that will disconnect the power if the cable is cut accidentally.
Unlike hover mowers, electric mowers collect the grass clippings and leave a clean, neat finish to the lawn.
Petrol Lawn Mowers - 4 Wheel
Petrol mowers are ideal for larger gardens. They are more powerful than mains electric models and aren’t restricted by a cable. Four wheel machines like this are highly manoeuvrable and give and excellent finish on all types of lawn. If you want a striped effect finish you’ll need a machine with a rear roller.
The chassis, or cutter deck, as it is commonly known is often made from steel with a powder coated paint finish. Mowers with stainless steel or aluminium cutter decks may cost a little more but you won’t have to worry about corrosion.
Petrol Lawn Mowers - Roller
Although 4 wheel mowers give an excellent finish on all types of lawn you may be the owner of a fine lawn and want those classic stripes. If so you’ll need a mower with a rear roller mower.
The chassis, or cutter deck, may be made from steel with a powder coated paint finish or aluminium chassis. The chassis houses the cutter blade and determines the working width of the mower. Genrally rear roller models with working widths up to 53cm.
Mulching Lawn Mowers
Did you know that a lawn the size of a tennis court can produce over a ton of grass clippings in a season? If you don’t want to collect and dispose of your grass clippings you need a mulching lawnmower.
The secret of our Multiclip technology lies in the geometry of the cutter deck and blade. Instead of cut grass being discharged into a collector it circulates beneath the cutter deck to be chopped into tiny particles. These particles are then blown right down into the base of the turf out of sight where micro-organisms aid their rapid decomposition.
Ride on Lawn Mowers
If you think your garden is too small for a ride-on mower think again! They can be small enough to drive through a standard garden gate, Lawn riders are Ride on Mowers ideal for gardens of around half an acre.
Do you have a large garden with 2 or more acres of grass to cut? Then a lawn tractor is what you need
Did you know that a half acre lawn can product more the 4 tons of grass clippings in a single season? Do you really want to collect and dispose of all that grass? If not a front cut ride on mower is ideal.
