Learn From Your Lawn

Do you have a small lot, or an expansive property? Is the terrain hilly or mostly even? Will you have to maneuver around flowerbeds, pathways or children’s play sets? The size and topography of your lawn is the main factor to consider when beginning your search for a compatible mower.

Manual Reel Mower

Sometimes, the best methods are the tried and true, even if they seem outdated.

Traditional reel mowers are still around for a reason: they work.

Simple to operate, lightweight and ergonomic, these old-fashioned lawn mowers are perfect for small, flat yards. When pushed, a set of metal blades spin and trim grass like a pair of scissors, which is actually a healthier cut for your grass than a rotary method, which makes impact with grass blades and causes a degree of injury and mutilation.

The best results come from walking briskly, so you’ll get the opportunity to sneak in a workout as you mow.

If your lawn is plagued with sticks and stones, you’ll have to do a thorough pick up before mowing. Like any lawn mower, reel mowers are not built to power through hard objects.

Corded Electric Mower

The best feature about electric mowing is that there is no time limit. With an appropriate outdoor extension cord and some determination, you’re ready to go with a simple press of the start button.

While corded electric models are quiet, dependable, and efficient, they are limited by the range of the extension cord.  As such, they are best suited for small yards that have easy access to an outdoor power source, and do not have many obstacles that could entangle the cord.

Sun Joe corded electric models deliver power and convenience with the option to adjust the cutting height of reliable steel blades. Equipped with a rear collection bag that detaches easily for waste disposal, some models even mulch to help you reuse clipping for compost.
