How to Pick the Right Lawn Mower

Buying a new lawn mower may seem simple- they all perform the same function- but there is great divergence in the kinds of mowers available. This guide will help you decide which mower is right for you.

Cutting Path

A larger cutting path will cut down on the amount of time it takes to cut your grass. Look for a mower with a cutting path of at least 21 inches for best results.

Cutting Height

The grass breed you have will determine how short you want to cut it. Some look good really short while others look better left a bit longer. Make sure the mower you choose gives you the best clearance you need.

Grass Bag

If your yard is big, you want a big grass bag to avoid having to empty it multiple times. Look for 2-bushel bags for least impediment to your mowing.


Consider the number of obstacles you have in your yard- trees, rocks, paths, hills- to determine how maneuverable your mower should be. Look at light-weight models to make it easier to move around.

Engine Size

The size of the engine is not so important. A 150cc engine is sufficient to cut most lawns.


If you are tall, get an adjustable handle to avoid hunching. And look for foam and rubber padding on the handle to reduce hand and arm fatigue.
