Battery Push Mowers
Mowing the lawn is a summer ritual, but the question is always which mower to buy. People with large lawns often look for petrol mowers or even garden tractors, but what do you look for when you have a smaller lawn to maintain? Luckily, there is another option. If you don't want to deal with the noise and maintenance requirements of petrol mowers, you can always go electric.Battery vs. Corded
In decades past, the answer was easy: corded. Nowadays, the choice between battery and corded mowers is a little more complicated. Corded mowers have the one advantage that the battery doesn't run flat. In return, you need to have a power point near your lawn and a long enough extension cord. All a battery lawn mower needs is somewhere to charge.Battery vs. Petrol
There are a number of reasons for choosing battery rotary blade push mowers instead of their petrol equivalents. You have no need to worry about oil and petrol; they do not smell in use. Electric mowers are also much quieter, which means you don't have to worry about noise ordinances so you can mow early in the morning without worrying about the noise. That same feature also means that they are safer because you can hear what's happening around you.Using a Battery Mower
The key to using a battery mower is to make sure it's charged before use. One way to do it is to charge the mower the night before; that way you know it's ready to go the next morning. Yes, it takes a little more time than filling the tank on a petrol mower, or even plugging a mower into a power point. Still it's just a matter of remembering one thing rather than two or more.Accessories
The most important accessory for cordless push mowers are lawn mower batteries. Battery-powered mowers rely on lithium batteries for range and extended duration over other battery technologies. Be aware that lawn tractors and other petrol mowers do use batteries, but not the same.
