A Little Background

A lawn mower is a kind of tool that lets you trim your grassy area or lawn. They are only mostly used for grassy areas that are flat or at least even while slightly slanted. They are not meant for unstable ground or uneven ground, such as those with rocky areas (those are for string trimmers) and are usually bigger machines that can either be pushed or ridden on. They are an indispensible tool for homeowners who maintains a lawn.

There are two general types of mowers: the riding style and the walk behind or push styles. The riding style is much bigger and less of an exercise while the walk behind style is the most common. Riding styles are only ideal if you maintain hectares of land, such as golf courses, while those that have a walk behind style get more exercise and they are mostly meant for small to medium sized land areas.

Different grass types may need a different maintenance routine. For instance, there are grass species that tend to grow faster than others, so they may need to be trimmed more regularly to avoid overgrowing and messing up your lawn. In some cases, you may need to trim them less often so that you avoid making them look pale with brown patches in some areas. Knowing your grass type is important to maintain a healthier lawn.

You can get a grass cutting machine that is either electric powered or gas powered. Electric powered ones can either run on battery or run on an electric cord from a power source. They offer great convenience but may not have as much power as gas types. The gas types, however, are less eco friendlier and noisier but are more suitable if you need to mow hectares of land – electric/battery types cannot simply do that due to lack of power.

Electric powered ones can either be corded or cordless. The advantage of the corded one is that you get unlimited power with your unit, but the downside is that you can only use it in a near proximity, such as near your house and you need to have a long power cord for it. Cordless units, on the other hand, eliminate the limited cord problem, but you also need to sacrifice with limited power because it will eventually run out.

Some of these grass cutting machines can also perform mulching. This is a more eco friendlier approach compared to just bagging your grass clippings when you mow them. Mulching is the act of putting the grass into the soil to become like a fertilizer so that the soil will become much healthier. Mulching is found in most models of mowing machines today so you may not have to look for it.

Cutting grass too thinly can make your lawn look bad. To maintain a healthy lawn, you should consider the appearance of your grass. You should balance the thinness of the height and don’t make the excuse that cutting grass shorter eliminates the time you need to spend when maintaining your grass lawn. Always look for spots where grass tends to grow shorter and avoid overdoing that part.

How we Picked

In choosing the best lawn mower, we looked into the following criteria:

Type: you can choose either a riding style or a walk behind style. There are also special ones that are self-propelled or robotic, as well as tow-behind styles. The walk behind works well for most lawn situations and those with small to medium sized lawns, but bigger lawns, on the other hand, should go for a self-propelled or a riding style machine. The tow-behind style is ideal if you have another vehicle you can ride on while in the lawn.

Power source: some are gas powered while some are electric powered (corded or cordless). There are some, however, that can be manually powered. Corded ones are great for unlimited power, while cordless ones are great for portability. Gas powered ones are the best choice for really stubborn or thick grass varieties or really tall grass. Manual ones are great for smaller lawns (and added exercise benefits).

Cutting width: the typical cutting width can be somewhere between 14 to 60 inches for most units. Those who may have larger lawns can benefit from a larger cutting width so that they can get the job done much faster.

Bagging or mulching: bagging can be a great feature if you want to be able to reuse the grass clippings later on. Mulching is a good choice for those who want to instantly mulch the ground as you trim the grass with your machine.

Electric start: some of these units may also have an electric start feature. The electric start thoroughly eliminates the annoying feeling of having to manually start the engine, especially with gas types.

Side discharge: some units can also have this feature for making it easier to dispense the grass clippings. Not all of the units out there do have this feature, but it can be helpful if you have one that has one, because it can help in getting your machine or unit cleaned up.

Zero Turn Radius: some of them can have the ZTR property, which is usually found on riding styles. Zero turn radius models can be slightly more expensive, but they are the best in maneuverability.

Voltage or capacity of battery (cordless): the total capacity of your battery life should be enough depending on how much grass in your lawn needs to be mowed on a daily basis. The longer the battery life, the better its operation, and the more grass areas you can trim or mow.

Capacity of gasoline tank (gas): this is important to consider so that you can be able to know how much fuel you need to consume and use depending on the size of your lawn. Larger and bigger lawns that amount to hectares of land may need a larger gasoline tank for more power and operating time.

Multiple functions: some of these mowing machines can also be used for edging and trimming with convertible features and attachments. This is important for those that need to trim, edge and mow with just one tool or equipment as much as possible to save time and space in your garage.

Best Lawn Mower that is Self-Propelled

The Yard Machines 159cc is a great choice for those who want a self-propelled machine so that they do not have to push the machine all the way, especially with rough or sloped terrain. It is gas powered but it is powerful enough for most terrains with its OHV engine and it has a side discharge feature as well.

Best Lawn Mower that is a Push Reel

For those who like it manually, the American 1204-14 is a 4-blade machine that has a 14-inch cutting deck and can be set up to 1 3/4 inch of cutting height. It is super lightweight at only 19 lbs and it is made with quality tempered alloy steel.

Best Lawn Mower that is Robotic

For a robotic lawn mowing machine, the WORX WG794 is a good choice, which is programmable, has shock sensors, is capable of climbing slopes and can cut up to 4 inches in height. It can also work for up to 1/4 of an acre of area.

Best Lawn Mower with a Trimmer

As a gas powered 4-cycle engine, the Remington 22-Inch is a good choice for those who also want to do trimming in one go. It has an OHV 159cc engine and is very easy to use due to its simple design. It can be easily maneuvered over tough terrain.

Best Lawn Mower that is Corded

A smaller version of our top pick is the GreenWorks 25142, which is ideal for being corded. It has a rear discharge and a mulching ability as well and it has adequately sized wheels for better maneuverability.

Best Lawn Mower that is Battery Powered

For those who like battery power, the EGO Power+ is ideal for you with its 4Ah battery power that can last up to 45 minutes of cutting time. It is easy to recharged within 30 minutes and has a 20-inch cutting width.

Best Lawn Mower that is Gas Powered

For a gas powered machine, the Honda HRR216K9VKA is a good choice because of its variable speed and its self-propelled qualities which is great for larger terrain. It uses a smart drive system and also comes with a twin-blade system.

The Competition

There were others that were not included in this list because they lacked ease of use as well as sufficient battery and/or electric power in order to mow the grass. They also did not have a lot of cutting width in order to make the job easier.

Other Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why is mowing the lawn very important?

A: Mowing the lawn is a highly important task because of the following benefits:

1) A well-maintained lawn looks much more pleasant than one that has overgrown grass.

2) It helps eliminate snakes and other harmful pests that can lurk in taller grass.

3) An equal growth distribution will be assured if you trim them on the same level.

4) Any debris that gathers in grass can also be cleared when you mow it.

5) Well-maintained grass lawns can also produce healthier plants if you plant on them.

6) Mulching the soil with the grass clipping scan help fertilize the soil.

Q: What are the different types of mowing machines?

A: There are many kinds of mowing machines out there, and let’s have a look at some of them:

1) The push behind or walk behind type is the most common type. It is simply the regular mowing machine that has a long handle from the back in which the operator needs to push it forward like a push cart from a grocery store. It takes some power to move and maneuver properly, but it can be a great workout as well. Here are some of its properties:

Push Behind or Walk Behind Type

Typical Cost

$150

Operation

Semi-Manual

Power

Battery, electricity or gasoline

Size of lawn

Small to medium

Durability

Good

2) The reel or the manual type is the one that does not create noise because it lacks an engine, therefore it is completely manual unlike the push behind type. It is also the cheapest of all and the most budget friendly and eco friendly option if that’s your preference. Here are some of its properties:

Reel or Manual Type

Typical Cost

$100 to $200

Operation

Manual

Power

Manpower

Size of lawn

Small

Durability

Good

3) The electric types can be divided into either corded or cordless ones. Corded ones are less safer because of the power cord potentially tripping you, but they can provide longer lasting power because the unlimited source of energy. Cordless ones are great for portability, on the other hand, but lack power compared to corded ones. Here are some of their properties:

Electric Types

Typical Cost

$200

Operation

Manual (some are self-propelled)

Power

Outlet (corded) Batteries (cordless)

Size of lawn

Small to medium

Durability

Okay (cordless) Good (corded)

4) The self-propelled type is good if you don’t want to waste your time having to push the machine just to mow the grass. They are great for medium sized lawns or if you don’t want to break a sweat and have other things to do. Here are some if its properties:

Self-propelled Type

Typical Cost

$500 to $900

Operation

Self-propelled (with semi-manual)

Power

Gas or electric

Size of lawn

Medium to large

Durability

Better

5) The riding type is the most ideal one for those who have hectares upon hectares of land, e.g. an entire football field or golf course. If you maintain areas of land like this, you may need something that makes mowing the grass less tiring. They are still different from lawn tractors in terms of maneuverability. Here are some of its properties:

Riding Type

Typical Cost

$1,000 to $9,000 (pretty expensive!)

Operation

you drive it

Q: What are the types of push mowing machines and where are they best used?

A: There are various kinds of push mowing machines and they are best used for different kinds of situations. Here are some of them:

1) Gas types are ideal for those who have a larger area of land, such as those with half an acre in size, and can be a little more difficult to start. However, they pack a lot of power in the long run as compared to electric types due to their fuel source. There are some that have an electric starter so there’s no choking, priming or cord pulling required.

2) Electric types are ideal for flat and small lawns of around one thirds of an acre or less than that. They are a quiet choice if you think gas types are jarring the ears of your neighbors. They can be divided into two sub categories:

a) Corded – these ones are simply plugged into an outlet or power source, giving you unlimited power. They can be dangerous at times if you leave the cord dangling around the area. If you don’t have a cord that is long enough, you cannot reach other parts of your lawn.

b) Cordless – these types are the best to use for small to medium sizes lawns that have grass that don’t grow real fast. They can be powered by any 40-volt or 80-volt lithium ion battery and can charge as quick as 30 minutes depending on the model. While they have limited power, they offer great portability and reach.

3) Reel types are those who prefer having no engine at all when it comes down to maintaining their lawn. This type has no power source – except you. It is basically the most manual of all of the mowing machines out there and is a great workout for those who want to lose some calories while they are maintaining their lawn in the morning. They are also eco-friendly and make less noise, but they are only ideal for small lawns.

4) Self-propelled ones are those are still somewhat push mowing types but are more suitable for larger yards and lawns because of their self-propelled design. They are great for those with slopes as well, since inclines can be very bad for larger mowing machines. They can be divided into the following:

a) FWD – the front wheel drive ones are ideal for those who have a more flat terrain.

b) RWD – the rear wheel drive ones are ideal for slopes and hill areas.

c) AWD – the all wheel drive ones can be used on both slopes and flat areas.

In addition to those types, here are some helpful features that you may want to look for in a push behind or walk behind type:

a) Higher torque for thicker grass varieties

b) Dual battery system for more cutting time

c) Height adjustment for the cut height

d) Higher engine displacement for gas types

e) No-prime engines to eliminate starting fuss

f) Higher amps and volts for more power

g) A blade brake clutch for safely operating the blades

h) Variable speed for self-propelled ones for longer lasting motor life

i) Deck wash port for connecting a garden hose

j) Improved wheels for better maneuverability

k) Better cutting width for single pass mowing

l) Optional attachments available

Q: What factors can help decide the cutting deck or cutting width?

A: There are many ways for you to decide what is the best cutting width for your lawn mowing machine, such as with the following:

a) Size of your lawn – there are many factors to determine the best cutting width, but this is the most important. Naturally, you would want a cutting width that works well depending on the size of your lawn. Having a deck that is too small for a large lawn size can make it more time consuming. You can consult the following table for more information:

Deck Size

Lawn Size

40 inches

1/2 acre

42 to 48 inches

1/2 to 2 acres

50 inches

3+ acres

b) Time spent – you will have to spend more time going over areas with more passes if you consider a smaller or narrower cutting width. On the other hand, if you go for a wider cutting width, you can save more time. This is an important factor for those who want to maintain a lawn but barely have the time to do so. If you stick to a 42-inch deck and mow 1 acre of land, here’s how much time you can save if you switch to bigger decks:

Deck Size

Time Savings

46 inches

10%

50 inches

17%

c) Horsepower and deck ratio – this means that you can spend less time mowing the lawn with more horsepower that you have because higher horsepower can potentially make a single pass action. However, you need to keep in mind that it should also go with the right size of deck for better maneuverability overall.

d) Type of mowing machine – this can also be a deciding factor since mowing machines that have more power and more mobility can be more suitable for those larger decks. In addition to that, the speed of how your machine will most likely move and the slopes of your area can also affect the idealism of a cutting width or deck for it.

e) Obstacles in your lawn – this technically means that you should go for a smaller deck if you have so many stuff around your yard that makes it hard for you to maneuver your machine.

Q: What common features can be found on a lawn mowing machine?

A: There are various features that you can potentially find in your home lawn mowing machine, such as the following:

1) Easy start – there are various lawn mowing machines out there that can have an easy start feature, even if it is a gas powered one.

2) Automatic choke – this is important for those machines that run on gasoline, so that you do not have to prime or choke the gasoline engine in order to start it up.

3) Electric start – this is a variation of the easy start in which even gasoline powered ones can benefit from. They provide an easy way for you to start your mowing machine without a lot of effort.

4) Swiveling wheels – they make things a lot easier when you move around your lawn in order to trim it better. This is also very important if your lawn has a lot of obstacles such as trees, flowerbeds, statues, fountains and the like to maneuver around.

5) Low noise levels – having low noise levels is crucial for any kind of mowing machine because being too loud can disturb the neighbors and can also worsen your hearing capabilities later on. Therefore, it is important that your mowing machine is on a safe level so as not to cause an argument with others.

6) Mulching – this kind of feature is helpful to keep the soil of your grassy area much healthier when you mow it. There are many brands out there that feature mulching as a special feature so you should definitely make use of it if you do have the time.

7) Bagging – this technique is used if you do want to use a bag instead of mulching the grass clippings. Bagging the grass can make them more applicable for later use or on another area of land that you might intend to use the grass clippings for.

Q: How do I mow a wet lawn properly?

A: There are many hindrances as to mowing a lawn while in its wet or damp state. This is because the dew on the grass can make things worse and can put some load onto your machine. Therefore, here are some tips and tricks as to how to mow a wet lawn properly:

a) Don’t move too fast so that the blades will not get too much load. Exerting too much effort and speed while you are mowing the lawn can make the engine and the blades break down easily when it is used in any wet surface or damp weather.

b) The mowing height can be raised a little so that the load on your mowing machine’s engine cannot be that high. It can be harder to cut grass when it is wet so do consider reducing the load by minimizing the length of grass to take off from your current lawn state when it is wet.

c) You can use a hose to suck up most of the dew or rain that has gathered onto the grass. This is effective if you really want to mow it but there’s too much dew around. It can act like a squeegee so it helps if you use the hose first before you mow, or at least a few minutes before you mow.

d) If you are using a bagging system, consider emptying it much more often. Wet grass is, of course, heavier, and thus can make your system suffer much more. Therefore, you should throw the bag away when you think the machine is getting heavier than ever before.

e) Don’t cut your grass too short, especially in wet weather, because that has a higher chance of growing taller than it once was. Therefore, you should just stick to a normal cutting routine so as not to make your grass grow unexpectedly taller after you left it behind.

Q: How are self-propelled and reel types different?

A: The self-propelled and the reel types are different in many ways, such as the following:

Criteria

Self-Propelled

Reel Types

Typical usage

They are mostly used for medium to large sized lawns and for when you don’t have a lot of power to push a lawn mowing machine.

They are mostly meant for those who want to work out while mowing the lawn and are ideal for small lawns.

Power

They can run on one of the following: gasoline, electricity or batteries.

They are entirely run by manpower.

Typical weight

They can weigh around 50 lbs or less.

They can weigh from 16 to 32 lbs.

Price

The self-propelled types are usually much more expensive.

The reel types are manual so they tend to be on the cheaper side.

Runtime

Electric powered ones have the best run time, followed by gas powered ones and lastly, the battery ones.

The run time roughly depends on how much you are able to push the mowing machine.

Noise levels

They can create some noise, since they have an engine.

They do not create much noise because they are manual.

Q: How are electric units and gas powered units different?

A: There has always been some debate between gas powered and electric powered units for mowing the lawn, and here are some of their differences:

Criteria

Gas Powered

Electric Powered

Noise Levels

They tend to be much noisier than electric models so they are more ideal for places with less neighbors to disturb while you are mowing.

Electric powered ones tend to be quieter because they have less power than gas types, but they’re more ideal for not waking up the neighbors.

Eco-friendliness

Emissions can be a problem with gasoline models but there are also models today that have significant cuts on their emission levels so they don’t impact the environment that much compared to old models.

Electric powered ones do not create smoke and other pollutants so they don’t really impact the environment that much, unless you use their power too much or throw away an old battery without discretion.

User-friendliness

Gas powered ones aren’t for the newcomers, since you need to pull the cord properly and perform priming or choking so that you can power up the unit and get mowing.

Electric powered ones tend to be more user-friendly in general due to the single button starting.

Maintenance

Gas powered ones need their engines to be tuned up properly, have oil changes, blade sharpening, refueling the tank and others. This can be troublesome for most people.

Electric powered ones may only need to be cleaned properly, have the blades sharpened and have the battery replaced.

Ideal usage

Gas powered ones are ideal for medium to large scale land areas, as well as inclined slopes and those with really thick grass.

Electric ones are ideal for small areas where the source of electricity is easy enough to access. They are best for thinner and flatter areas.

Q: How are riding mowing machines different from lawn tractors?

A: There are major differences between riding mowing machines and lawn tractors, as they are often confused with each other, such as the following:

Criteria

Riding Mowing Machines

Lawn Tractors

Maneuverability

They tend to be much more maneuverable so they are a great choice for those with trees and shrubs around their home lawn.

They are less maneuverable due to their design compared to that of riding mowing machines.

Location of the cutting deck

The cutting deck is located underneath the front side of the machine.

The cutting deck is found on the middle section.

Q: What’s a Zero Turn Radius mowing machine and how does it work?

A: The ZTR or Zero Turn Radius mowing machine is a kind of riding style machine that allows a person to mow the grass without breaking that much of a sweat. They are steered not by wheels but by levers that control each wheel to go forward, backward or left and right.

It takes some practice in order to move the ZTR machine, since it involves a series of standard turns, such as the following:

1) Forward – both levers forward

2) Reverse – both levers backward

3) Speed up – push both levers farther in your intended direction

4) Curve left – push both forward, with the right handle forward farther

5) Curve right – push both forward, with the left handle forward farther

6) Swinging turn – push only either left or right and keep the other neutral

7) Spin around – push both levers on opposite directions

Q: What are the advantages of the ZTR or Zero Turn Radius mowing machine?

A: There are many good things to say about the zero turn radius mowing machine, such as the following:

1) It makes turning your machine a breeze.

2) It cuts grass better than most mowing machines.

3) You can use it as either a riding style or a walk behind style machine.

4) They can work well on larger terrains.

5) If you maintain an area with a lot of obstacles then these are ideal to use.

6) There are many attachments that can be used with them.

7) They can be fueled with various sources such as gasoline, electricity, battery and alternative fuel.

Q: How do I trim or mow the lawn without making mistakes?

A: Most people will tend to make lawn care mistakes if they are new to doing such a thing. Therefore, here are some tips if you are not very used to mowing the lawn yet:

1) Don’t overcut the grass and leave brown spots – that just makes your grass look unattractive. The shorter you cut your grass, the longer it will tend to grow so don’t think about cutting it too thinly.

2) Make sure the collar is wide enough so you don’t bump into your other garden items such as a flower bed or a tree. The collar is like a guiding line or border – similar to the border you create before filling in a shape to color in a page – so that you can mow in the center with ease.

3) Decide whether you want to trim first and then mow or mow first and then trim. Trimming first is ideal for those who want to do mulching while for those who want to save more trimming time, you should consider mowing first and then trimming.

4) On wet grass (as mentioned above), don’t speed up because they can potentially rip off the grass clippings and can make the whole lawn unevenly cut. It might also make your engine and blades suffer more due to the dew and dampness of the grass.

5) You don’t have to look down all the time – looking ahead of you makes it easier to perform a straight line in mowing.

6) Use both of your hands, regardless if you’re left-handed or right-handed, when you are mowing so that you are able to trim without sacrificing safety and time.

7) You don’t have to mow in the same direction as the grass grows all the time – you can alternate the route so that it will put some exercise to your grass.

8) Instead of bagging, you may want to consider mulching, which is a technique that makes grass healthier by putting the grass clippings into the turf or land so that it will fertilize the soil better.

9) Trimming and edging should be done in one go, because edging later can be a problem if your grass has grown some more.

Q: What are the different species of grass and on what climate do they grow on?
