Gasoline Powered Reel Lawn Mowers
Reel lawn mowers have been around for well over a century. The first one
was invented by Edwin Budding, an Englishman in 1830. Much later inventors
added power to these mean cutting machines beyond the power provided by
people and animals. Gasoline powered reel lawn mowers work like most push
reel lawn mowers only they are powered by gasoline engines for easier use.
Gasoline powered reel lawn mowers use the traditional twisted metal blades
arranged as a reel between the wheel assemblies.
Gasoline powered reel lawn mowers cut like scissors. They are most effective
on grass that is long enough to get caught by the sharp blades, but not so
long that the real flattens instead of shears the grass, a common problem
with all reel mowers.
Push-type reel mowers are generally considered environmentally friendly and
fairly economical. Lightweight alloys and plastics have helped reduce the
overall weight of what used to be a heavy and hard to manipulate lawnmower
model. Unfortunately, gasoline powered reel lawn mowers are not so
There are two types of gasoline powered reel lawn mowers. One type sends
clippings shooting out the front of the mower, this is the type most
professionals prefer for the finest cut possible on large areas such as
parks and golf courses. Short-growing grasses look best if they are cut with
a power reel motor.
Gasoline powered reel mowers that send clippings shooting out the back are
more widely used by lawn mower and lawn care homeowners. Reel mowers are preferred by many yard
caretakers because they shear the grass instead of violently tearing it like
a rotary mower does. When grass is torn instead of cut, tips tend to brown
and tarnish the overall look of the lawn.
Any gasoline powered lawn mower is known to emit pollution and those who use
them should be conscious of that fact. When using gasoline powered reel lawn
motors it is crucial that you keep the blade sharp if you want to keep your
lawn looking sharp. Always use the fuel type that is recommended by the
manufacturer and keep the mower clean and dry when it's not in use. Never
put your mower away wet. Replace the gas and oil in your gasoline powered
reel lawn mower at least every six months and replace the spark plugs at the
beginning of each season. Be sure to check your spark plugs and keep the
deck free of build-up and yard debris.
