The Advantages of an Electric Lawn Mower
To many people, the words “lawn mower” conjures up the picture of a
gas-powered thundering beast that is difficult to start and unpleasant to
use. If you dislike the noise and smells that go along with gas mowers,
maybe you should consider buying an electric lawn mower.
An electric lawn mower has many advantages over its gas-powered counterpart.
It is quieter (something both you and your neighbours will appreciate), and
much cleaner to operate, both in terms of air pollution and the need to
store gas and oil in the garage.
The amount of air pollution caused by gas lawn mowers is considerable. Small
engines are not subject to the same pollution control standards as cars, and
consequently, gas mowers are responsible for 5% of the air pollution in the
United States. An electric lawn mower has no emissions of any kind, and is
also better on noise pollution that a gas mower.
Electric Lawn Mowers Are Economical
An electric lawn mower is also economical to run. It requires almost no
maintenance, so there are no costly tune-ups and oil changes, and only uses
about $5 of electricity per year.
There are two types of electric lawn mower – corded or cordless. Corded
models are usually less expensive, but care has to be taken to keep the cord
out of the way of the mower and away from children and pets. Cordless mowers
have built in battery chargers so they simply have to be plugged in after
each use to keep them fully charged.
If you are considering buying a cordless electric lawn mower, take into
consideration the size of your lawn. This will determine how big of a
battery you need. Usually a 24 volt battery is suitable for small or medium
size lawns and a 36 volt battery is for larger lawns. Check out the recharge
times as well – many batteries take 16 to 20 hours to recharge.
Once you start using an electric lawn mower, you will never want to go back
to a gas machine. Electric lawn mowers are cleaner, quieter, lighter, and
have a full set of accessories that will suit any lawn mower and lawn care home owner.
