There are many different types of mowers available and the popular ones are usually petrol lawn mowers. They are affordable and very easy to use for most people. However, these mowers come in all different shapes and sizes so before you decide to buy one, you need to make sure it’s just what you want and need.

The thing that you need to think about is the landscape that you’ll use your lawn mower on. This will determine a few features that you will need along with the dimensions of the mower. You also need to consider where you’re going to keep the mower overnight and between uses as it needs to be able to fit in your storage space.

Petrol lawn mowers are the push variety, meaning you’ll need to be able to handle the weight. However, there is an engine so this isn’t as important as some other types of lawn mowers. Although you will need to think about moving the mower to and from your garden and when it comes to getting over any steps to where you store it.

The benefit of petrol lawn mowers is that they are smaller in size, so they can work with small gardens. You will need to stay on top of your garden because they don’t really work on thicker growth. You’ll also need to handle the clippings because not many have a mulching capability.

There are different sizes of motors and they all have different capabilities. You’ll need to check each one in turn and find one that is able to do what you need for the price that you’re willing to pay. This is when the torque will come in. The higher the torque, the easier it will be to push it. This is something to consider but remember, when pulling it in and out of storage you won’t have the motor running.

You’ll need to look into the way the motor starts. Some will be able to offer a button on the handle while others will have a pull cord. This will be a personal preference. You’ll also need to consider the handles. You want handles that are comfortable to grip so you don’t cause yourself pain.
