The next time you buy a lawn mower and you decide to get a cordless one, deciding which type to buy could be challenging for you especially you have been used to a gas powered or corded electric lawn mower. Be informed that there are broad similarities as well as important differences between a traditional lawn mower to that of a cordless lawn mower that we will enumerate briefly here, and these things have to be considered carefully before making the purchase.
The number one consideration that you have to factor in to check out what kind of lawn do you have, meaning you estimate the size of your lawn and if it is flat or slope.
As you are considering to purchase a new mower, check out the battery life of the mower as you have the idea of the size of the lawn. Know that the best cordless lawn mowers will cut, from a single charge, up to a third of an acre, although the battery life will slightly vary depending on how long is the grass, and whether it is wet or dry.
Even if the size of your lawn is larger than a third of an acre, no need to worry since you can still opt to purchase a cordless mower. Buying a model with a removable battery and then buy a second battery is the easiest way to address the above concern. This way, you can simply swap the batteries as the first one has lost its charge. Batteries can be easily removed and installed and so no need to be concern of this procedure.
Unlike gas powered lawn mowers which are self-propelled, most cordless lawn mowers are not, and so it is important to know if the lawn is flat or slope. The reason for this is that the slope will increase the strain on the batter of a cordless mower, that would significantly reduce the area you will be able to mow on one charge of the battery.
The answer to this concern led to the making of a less light weight cordless mowers compared to the gas powered mowers, with the battery as usually the heaviest component. With this characteristic, a cordless lawn mower is easy for you to navigate, although if you have a slope lawn and the weight still is an issue, take into some consideration of the matter.
With cordless lawn mowers, you will get a 3 in 1 feature, which will allow you on how the disposal of the grass clippings be done, from your choice of the cutting the clippings into very small pieces to make a mulch which is dispersed over the lawn, or simply throw away the clippings out of the side of the mower, or have the traditional way of collecting the clippings in the bag from the rear of the equipment.
