Buying the Best Petrol Lawn Mower
It’s a common question: “How can I get the best mower for the least amount of money“.
By the end of this post you will be in a better position to do just that.
There are a few golden rules to follow:
1. Decide on your budget first
Select a budget range that you are happy to spend. If you don’t there is a chance that a salesperson will up-sell you because the next model up of the lawn mower has X, Y and Z feature that you just have to have!
You want a mower that is easy to start, easy to use and cuts the grass well. We will only be selecting mowers that fit this criteria on the site and give them a rating so you can see what you are dealing with before buying.
Let us do the reviewing and you can then buy with confidence.
3. To stripe or not to stripe…
A stripy lawn is a personal thing. Some people love it some hate it, some don’t even notice, much to the annoyance of those who made a great effort to do it!
If you want stripes down the lawn you will need a lawnmower with a roller on the back to press down the grass. This is more expensive so it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth it.
Remember that a lawn mower is going to last a long time, many years, so it’s worth spending a little extra to make sure you get what you want and need in order to make your crass cutting duties easier for yourself and not frustrate you whenever you do it.
Note: Although an electric starter is a nice feature it’s really not that necessary unless you absolutely need it. A good machine with a cord starter will work just as nicely and not be hard to pull.
So, with those above points freshly in your mind let’s take a look at the selection of best petrol lawn mowers that we recommend:
