Cheap Petrol Lawn Mowers

Petrol Lawn Mowers are designed to give you more power and endurance that electric mowers.  They are best utilised on large lawns as well as grass that hasn’t been cut for a while and is therefore overgrown and / or thick.

A petrol lawnmower will be heavier than an electric one, so whilst they’ll cut more at any single time, they also require a lot more man power to move around.  Saying that, there are options available, such as self-propelling models that take a little bit of the effort required away.

These days, it is clear that petrol lawn mowers are becoming more and more popular for a variety of reasons.  Some of these reasons include the fact that they are becoming cheaper and easier to purchase.  Most of the petrol lawn mowers these days use standard unleaded straight from the pump, leaving the days of having to mix up fuel for 2 stroke engines long gone in the past.

The main benefit of a petrol mower is that because it isn’t tied to a power cord or cable, it can practically go anywhere you like and can also cut through longer grass due to the increased power the engines will provide.

It is also worth noting that petrol lawn mowers are quite noisy when you compare them to other types, and this is down to the fact that they have air cooled engines.  These air cooled engines also require a little more looking after than what an electric lawn mower would, but if they are maintained correctly and regularly, they will last far longer than the electric counterparts.

To make things clear, petrol lawnmowers have different terminologies, so we will look at what they are and what they mean now, along with details of some of the best of them on the market now according to price and reviews:

Self Propelled Petrol Lawnmower / Self Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower / Petrol Lawn Mowers Self Propelled / Petrol Self Propelled Lawn

A lawnmower that you find under any of these terms is one that requires a good level of human intervention and effort to make it move.  They will fire up using petrol, but it is up to you to manoeuvre them and control the directions in which they are cutting.  These types of mower would be suggested for gardens that are on a level, not too big, and not overgrown.

Some of the best of these type mowers are:

Powerplus 410mm (16”), 3 in 1 Self Propelled 4 Stroke 98cc  – This product contains a 3 in 1 Mower, has a 410mm cutting diameter, and comes with a 2 Year Home User Warranty.

Petrol Hover Mower

Put simply, petrol hover mowers work by creating a pocket of air that the mower rests on to give it the feeling that it is flowing.  These types of mowers should be used for medium to large lawns, and can be used in a professional setting.  One of the main benefits of a hover mower is that it can be moved in any direction and also at angles of up to 45 degrees, which makes the otherwise difficult to mow places that bit easier.

One of the best petrol hover mowers at the moment is:

Flymo Petrol Power Air Cushion Mower –  – This mower makes it easier to mow the usually difficult outlying areas.  This machine is designed for large-scale domestic and / or semi-professional use, and comes with a powerful Honda engine which helps work on slopes of up to 45 degrees.

This model isn’t cheap, cheap, but it is a great investment which will more than make your money back in a quick space of time.  You will see it is actually a bargain!

So, you now have a good understanding of petrol lawn mowers, and you’ve seen some of the many on offer that other people have reviewed and rated as good machines to purchase, so now let’s move on to the finer aspects of the mowers, including starting mechanisms and fuel types.

Starting with starting mechanisms:

Petrol lawnmowers can come with variable starting mechanisms, and believe it or not, the one you choose can have cost implications on your purchase.  The way it is viewed is that the easier it is for you to start up, the more expensive it will be.

The first type of starting mechanism is the Recoil Start and this involves pulling a cord with a handle out of the engine fairly quickly to enable it to turn over and get it started.

The second starting mechanism is the Electric Start and this involves pushing a small button to simply start the engine.  Believe it or not, petrol lawn mowers can have electric starts!

The third starting mechanism is the Electric Key Start and you would invariably find these on the more high spec models.  This start is operated by key, much similar to how you would start your car.

Finally, moving on to fuel types:

Petrol lawn mowers come in two different fuel types – 4 stroke and 2 stroke.  You will find that most petrol lawn mowers in the current climate.

Starting with 2 stroke engines.  2 stroke engines require a special additive to be added to the fuel to make it compatible with the engine.  In a 2 stroke engine, oil is most likely injected by the engine into the air / fuel mix, or even added to the fuel itself before it is put into the mower.  A 2 stroke engine is highly efficient and lightweight compared to the 4 stroke engine.

A 4 stroke engine is the most common engine around at the moment.  They run off standard unleaded petrol that you would get from a petrol forecourt.  These types of engines do require oil, and this is added separately for the purpose of lubrication.
