Start: It can be manual pulling of the starter handle on the handlebar by a spring in compression which operates the launcher, or electrically using a spanner to rotate.
Grinding (or mulching): Your mower will cut the grass into very fine particles, which settle to the ground between the grass almost invisibly, which will prevent you from picking up. This is a system that does not deplete your lawn because it gives it the nutrients absorbed during its growth, thus avoiding the use of fertilizers. Very fashionable, this system now equips many mowers kit or series.
Disadvantages, it will mow more often (2 times a week during growth).
Disengaging the blade: This system secures the blade without stopping the engine. Convenient when you need to empty the tank, cross a road or a rocky place.
Handlebar height: It should be adjustable to the height of the user, to avoid getting back pain. It must also be folded for easy storage.
The Bagger: It saves you having to pick up the grass after mowing. It should be easy to remove and reuse. Note however that the size, because they can be very heavy to carry when full!
Propelled: It is a system to move the mower alone, without effort. Generally, there is a bar that is kept pressed against the handle, which when released will stop the mower.
Feeding speed: Adjusts the speed of advance of the mower using a lever on the handlebar. Generally uses the pressure of the exhaust gas.
Adjusting the cutting height: The cutting height is important if you want a lawn (2 cm) or if you often spend little mower (grass). Some models offer this setting by a lever on the handlebar, more convenient than on wheels.
The wheels: They can be equipped with ball bearings to facilitate rotation.
The chassis (or case): Like a car, the chassis is the body of your mower.
Its role is to support the engine and its accessories to protect you from the blade to reduce engine vibration, promoting the removal of clippings with good air circulation and a suitable output, roll with the punches caused by the passage of objects (branches, rocks, metal …), to prevent corrosion and especially in the last time, while being as light as possible.
There are plastic frame, steel, aluminum, and Xenoy (plastic bumper cars). The latter material is lighter than aluminum by half for the same strength.
Cutting width: The blade lengths ranging from 30 cm to smaller clippers, with more than a meter for small lawn tractors (riding). Logically, the blade is more,the less time you spend mowing. Conversely, a larger blade requires a more powerful machine, and therefore the price of the mower will be higher.
The larger the surface, the greater the cutting width should be too. Choose a cutting width:
- 31 to 45 cm for small areas (up to 500m ²);
- 40 to 76 cm for medium-sized (500 to 1500m ²);
- 92-112 cm for large areas (more than 2000m ²).
