1. Types of Lawn Mowers

Push Lawn Mowers

Push Mowers are ideal for flat yards under ¼ acre. Their cutting deck ranges from 20-22 inches. Push mowers, in general, allow you to direct the mower whichever way you want, manually.

Push Lawn Mowers

Self Propelled Lawn Mowers

Self-Propelled Mowers are perfect for yards up to ¾ acre. Self-propelled mowers can be front-, rear- or all-wheel drive. Front wheel drive models are ideal for flat lawns. Rear wheel drive mowers are most effective when used with a bagger since the weight of the bag can sometimes cause the front end to rise as the bag fills ups.

Reel Lawn Mowers
Riding Lawn Mowers

If your lawn is larger than ¾ acres you may want to consider a Riding Lawn Mower.

Field Mowers
Robotic lawn mowers

Robot lawn mowers are becoming more popular these days and a lot more affordable, though still not cheap, comparing to a decade ago. The price is generally between $500 to $1500 and up. Some of best automowers includes:

  • Husqvarna Automower 310
