The Original Push Reel Mower is a traditional push lawn mower that was invented in 1830. Push reel mowers are simple machine, the gears of which spin a whorl of between five and eight spiral-shaped blades that pass by a stationary blade at the rear of the mower. The two, working together, slice the blades of grass to provide a smooth, fine grass surface.
Push reel mower is easy and safe to use but would be an absolute pig on a big lawn. Unless you’re using the lawn mowing exercise as a way to avoid the gym fees then keep away!
Popular Walk Behind Power Lawn mowers are either rotary or reel. These types of lawn mower are the most popular lawn mowers found around the world. It comes in either petrol or electric. The most common power lawn mower is the rotary lawn mower.
Rotary lawn mowers became more popular than the reel mower for several reasons. First, rotary mowers are less expensive and requires less maintenance than its reel counterpart. The second reason is that fact that rotary mowers have the capability to cut tall swards. They mow through tall grasses and weeds with ease.
Greenfield have a range of Ride-on Lawn Mowers, which have become more in demand as lawns became larger. These lawn mowers are fitted with seat and controls where the operator can settle and control the lawn mower. They are basically in between the normal lawn mowers and tractors.
Hover mowers are powered rotary push lawn mowers that utilize an impeller above the spinning blades to push air downwards, thereby creating an air cushion that lifts the mower above the ground. The lawn mower then can be easily moved as it floats over the grass. Hover mowers are light in order to achieve enough lift so typically they have plastic bodies with an electric motor. The most significant downside, however, is the cumbersome usability in rough terrain or on the edges of lawns, as the lifting air-cushion is destroyed by wide gaps between the chassis and the ground. Hover mowers are built to operate on steep slopes, waterfronts, and high-weeded areas, so they are often used by golf courses and commercial landscapers. The quality of cut can be inferior if the grass is pushed away from the blade by the cushion of air.
Robotic mowers can mow the lawn unsupervised. Simply turn it on and let it wander around your lawn cutting the grasses. It is contained by a border wire around the lawn that defines the area to be mowed. The robot uses this wire to locate the boundary of the area to be trimmed and in some cases to locate a recharging dock. These types of lawn mowers are becoming popular specially to those who cannot spare time for mowing their lawn.
