How To Choose The Best Lawn Mower That Suits Your Needs

By Michael Ferres

Many lawn mower manufacturers are producing high-quality durable mowers these days. That has an up side and a down side.

On the up side, you can choose from a wide variety and get exactly what you want. You won’t get stuck with the better of two poor choices. But at the same time, you may be at a loss for how to decide. There are so many to choose from that it can be daunting.

Narrowing your choices is key. Do you need to ride on the mower, or walk behind it? A walk behind mower that you push is for small to moderate sized expanses of grass. You can find electric models or gas powered ones. You will also want to get an edger to get the spots you can’t reach with the mower.

But back to the overall choice. What brand do you want? There are plenty of reputable brands that are producing really great mowers. Your job is to figure out the machine that is in your price range, and best suits your needs.

If you are looking for the quiet energy-efficiency of a cordless electric walking mower, you’ll want to check out Honda, Black & Decker, or Simplicity. On the other hand, if you want a traditional gasoline-powered mower, the best ones are made by Toro, Reel, Snapper, and MTD.

You’re better off with a riding mower, though, if your yard is large or if you are doing commercial mowing. In that case, look for the brands John Deere, Murray, and Husqvarna. These machines consistently perform well, get great reviews, and have zero-turn capabilities (basically they can pivot or rotate in place). These run on gasoline or petrol.

Regardless of the quality of the mower you purchase, you’ll have to do maintenance and repair. It’s the nature of machinery to wear out. Common trouble spots are belts, blades, and motors.

Your mulching deck will probably last the life of the machine. Do be careful of the engine though. Keep it oiled, and don’t let gasoline sit unused in the tank. The engine is expensive to replace, so keeping up with maintenance is well worthwhile.
