It goes without saying that any yard, regardless of its shape and size, needs regular mowing and trimming to keep it looking nice. Yard care service can be expensive which leaves the only option of doing your own upkeep. The gasoline powered lawnmower has been a default choice for decades. However, one type of lawnmower is making strides in popularity and ease of use in the industry, and that is the electric mower, such as the Bosch lawnmowers and the Flymo hover mowers. There's no need for messy gas spills and loud engine racket when considering one of the mowers that run on electricity from an AC outlet. Homeowners should consider the positive alternatives these mowers offer, especially with the latest advances in their technology.
There are a variety of cheap Bosch electronically-operated lawnmowers, beginning with a low-model mower that costs around £80. It has a 1000 watt motor and a cutting width of 32 centimeters. The higher end model runs around 150 pounds, has a 1700 watt motor and boasts a cutting width of 43 centimeters. For general purposes, the Bosch Rotak 34 Ergoflex will be described since it is a mid-line model in performance and cost compared to the other Bosch lawnmowers.
The 34 Ergoflex Bosch electronic lawnmower has a 1400 watt motor and 34 centimeters of cutting width. It costs around 120 pounds. The handles and deck height are adjustable, able to fit any posture or angle. The frame is lightweight, possessing side grass combs that allow close cuts against walls and around planters and trees. The rotary blades perform an even, precise cutting swath and the grass bin can hold up to 40 liters. It has a power cut-off switch for overload conditions. It stores easily with a folding handle design and is easily transportable.
The Flymo hover mowers are unique in that they float on a cushion of air, negating the use for wheels. They have no maneuverability or turning rate restrictions. The low-end Flymo Hover Micro-Lite costs a mere 50 pounds, has a 1000 watt motor and a cutting width of 28 centimeters. The high-end model Flymo Glide Master 340 boasts a 1550 watt motor and a 34 centimeter cutting width. The mid-size Flymo Easy Glide 300 offers a compromise between the two models.
