How To: Buy a lawn mower

Buy a lawn mower

If you're in the market for a new lawn mower, there are plenty of options, and it might be hard making a decision on which one is right for you. This video breaks down what you need to consider before buying a lawn mower and how to find one that best fits your needs.

Step 1: Research
Ask around or search the internet to find which brands and features are appealing to you. Stick to brands that are known for quality.

Step 2: Budget
Figure out how much you can afford. Mowers with more power and features generally cost more.

Step 3: Consider power source
Decide if you want a gas-powered, manual, or electric mower. Factor in your lawn size, gas versus electricity prices, and environmental impact.

Step 4: Consider driving style
Determine if you want a mower you have to push or one that is self-propelled. Push mowers give you more exercise.

Step 5: Deal with clippings
Decide whether you want a mower that mulches clippings or bags them. Some do both.

Step 6: Consider features
Consider horsepower, cutting path width, and any additional features of the mowers you are comparing before you buy.

Step 7: Buy
Buy the best mower for your needs. Be prepared to secure the mower in your trunk or truck bed with tie-downs, or arrange for delivery.
