With so many mowers to choose from, it can be difficult to choose the best lawn mower model for you. The first factor to consider is the power source - do you want a corded electric lawn mower or a petrol model, a battery type or a push mower? Once you've decided on that, you can then decide on the mower cutting type - rotary, cylinder or hover.
Read on to find out about the different mower cutting types.
Rotary mowers have a high-speed, spinning blade. They're the best choice for rougher grass or uneven surfaces. Rotary blades don't leave a refined finish - for a finer cut, choose a cylinder mower.
A hover mower has a rotary cutting action, but lifts off the ground when it’s in action, similar to a hovercraft - hence the name. They’re great value for money and perfect if you’ve got a smaller lawn that’s quite flat.
Cylinder mowers cut the grass with a scissor-action and create a very fine, striped finish. They're slightly more expensive, but an ideal choice if you like your grass smart and short.
