Petrol lawn mowers are the best machines for mowing medium to large areas of grass. Its strengths, when compared to an electric or battery-powered lawn mower, are its power and operating autonomy allowing you to work in the garden longer without the constraints of a power cord or having to stop to charge the battery.
Petrol lawn mowers are quite complex and heavy. Self-propelled petrol lawnmowers are also available (whereby the engine moves the wheels and you don’t have to push it) and are especially appreciated on hills by avid and professional gardeners. However, whatever version you own, they do require regular careful checks and maintenance since there are many mechanisms involved. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for these operations, as well as always using the correct spare parts and consumables. There are several checks you can perform yourself to keep your petrol lawn mower in good working order but always ensure you perform maintenance when the mower is turned off.
