Most mowers can easily cut your grass in perfect conditions: sunny day and dry grass. However, when it is raining outside and your lawn is wet or brittle, your mower may not be able to withstand the elements. There are several aspects of a mower to consider when you are shopping. The amount of torque will determine how well the engine can function, which moves the blades and cuts the grass. Therefore, choose a mower with higher torque if you have a large property or a lot of valleys and hills that you must climb.
Most self-propelled mowers have either front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. Many landscaping experts recommend rear-wheel drive, especially if you have a hilly area of grass. If you have to lift the lawn mower to move it around tight corners or down steep hills, the front wheel drive will be completely useless. You can also choose between set and variable speed, which can be beneficial on days when you are in a hurry or days when you want to enjoy the outdoors.
If you have substantial area of grass, you can also shop for commercial-grade lawn mowers. At MST Sod Equipment, we carry all types of mowers to help you keep your grass neatly trimmed.
