Looking At The Benefits Of Battery Powered Lawn Mowers

Battery powered lawn mowers can be an ideal purchase for keeping your lawn trim and tidy but this type of lawn mower is not suitable for some gardens, so it is important to assess if your needs will be met by a cordless lawn mower powered by a rechargeable battery.

Lawn mowers that run on a rechargeable motor powered by electric are ideal for gardens that are small to medium in size. Ideally, you do not want to stop the mowing half way through, for a recharge, so it is good to consider the size of the lawn that needs cutting. If you have a lot of grass to cut and you want to cut it all at the one time, then a rechargeable machine might not be the right one for you. If you do have a small to medium sized lawn, this type of mower could be perfect for your requirements.

Benefits of using a rechargeable electric lawn mower.

There are a number of benefits of a lawn mower powered by a battery compared to a corded electric version.

The main benefit is the ability to cut the grass without the hassle and potential dangers of having a power cord connecting the mower to the mains. With a cordless mower there are no problems having to keep one eye on the lawn and the other on a cable. Nor having to make sure the cable doesn’t fall in the path of the cutting blades or getting tangled or caught around fence posts, ornaments or garden furniture.

The other benefit to a rechargeable model is the distance away from a power source that the machine can be used. With corded mowers, the area that can be reached is limited to its distance from a power source and the length of the cord and, if used, extension cable. There’s no such problem with a rechargeable model. This makes them ideal for hard to reach areas, away from the house or garage, and perfect for areas where having a power cable laying across the ground is not advisable, for example, if you have a patch of grass on the other side of a public road or footpath. For this reason, mowers powered by battery power can also be a suitable substitute for petrol powered mowers, as long as the grass area is within a manageable size of a rechargeable mower and the grass is not too long.

Summary.

Battery powered lawn mowers can be a good choice and will serve you well if chosen well. Look for a model with a powerful motor, indicated by the amount of volts, as this will help with cutting thicker, longer grass and extend the cutting time. Compare mowers for recharge time, as these can vary between brands and models, and look for models that have a rapid recharge that can give a percentage charge in a quick time.

Also, it is worth to consider buying a second battery to increase the length of time cutting the lawn without having to wait for a recharge. Plus, it is always advisable to read the instructions for the mower you buy as battery care differs between brands and the battery life can deteriorate quickly if not cared for properly.
