What to consider when buying a new lawn mower

Purchasing a new lawn mower may seem like a simple task, and while the process is by no means complicated, there are several decisions you have to make before you get started. In fact, there are a few things to consider when it comes to finding the best lawn mower to suit your specific needs.

One of the main factors you need to consider is the type of lawn mower you want. For example, are you in the market for a traditional push mower or maybe a ride mower? There are also lawn tractors, self-propelled mowers, and several other different types to choose.

Besides the type of mower, you need, you also decide between either gas or electric powered mower. There are several benefits of each, and this decision mainly applies to push mowers. For example, an electric mower helps you save on some energy costs, while on the other hand, some gas mowers have more power, allowing you to get the job done quicker and easier.

Another important factor to consider is the type and extent of extra features you want in your mower. While of course not essential to the mower’s main grass cutting function, most mowing equipment comes with additional features including driving speed controls, cruise control, safety brakes, and even cup holders. Deciding between a combination of these features and others may lead to you finding the perfect mower.

These are just a few of the things to consider before buying your next lawn mower. For more information about different types of lawn mowers and their features contact the team at LJ Elter & Son Power Equipment Centers.
