Lawn Mower Selection: Push Mower vs. Ride Mower

Mowing is a task for anyone who has a lawn. You have bought a home with a lawn. Should you get a push mower or a ride mower? In this video, Handyguys Brian and Paul discuss lawn mower selection.

Considerations for Lawn Mower Selection

The biggest factor is the size of the lawn. The bigger the lawn, the more likely it is that you need a ride mower. Another factor is obstacles. If there are a lot of obstacles in your yard, you may need a push mower. Time is also a significant factor. If you just do not have the time to push a lawnmower for hours on end, then the ride mower may be right for you. However, the push mower will give you more exercise if you need it. Maintenance can also be a key issue. The ride mower requires significantly more maintenance in terms of tire type, amount of oil, and complexity of the tool. Finally, both mowers can be dangerous. Make sure that you understand how to use a mower before you purchase it.

In this video, The Handyguys discuss the pros and cons of each to help you decide which to get.
