The rear self propelled lawn mower is perfect for people who live in homes with little space. The idea is to have the lawn mower sit behind the house, and go around the yard in small circles. By riding along on the lawn mower back and forth, the user can move the lawn in tight spaces without having to worry about pushing it. Many users report that they find the process of using a rear self propelled lawn mower a lot easier than pushing a standard lawn mower. This mower is also a good choice for people who have larger yards and need to move large clumps of grass, since the process is more simplified when going from one area to another.
For many people, the decision to purchase this mower was based on performance. They were happy with the smooth experience and reported that the mower seemed to operate quite well as it moved through the grass. Others reported minor issues, but overall, most users had a very positive experience. However, others are not so pleased with the performance of their newly purchased lawn mowers. They have found that it tends to cut crooked and leaves some grass unpleasantly exposed. These users also report that it is difficult to control and maneuver and can injure children or pets that may become caught under the blades.
Many of these issues seem to be related to the design of the lawn mower itself. Many of the consumer reports mentioned above have recommended the use of an electric cutting blade for a smooth experience. Electric cutting blades cut much more cleanly and leave the lawn mower feeling more relaxed. For those who are concerned about sharp blades, most electric mowers come with sharpening sets for users to use at the dealership. These sets allow the owner to sharpen the lawn mower themselves.
One of the other main issues that consumers report experiencing relates to control and maneuverability. Some find that the ride of their newly purchased lawn mower is uncomfortable and does not provide a satisfactory level of control. This is because the rider is unable to precisely control the movement of the machine. When a user is able to move the mower up and down and make adjustments to the cut, they are able to more accurately control the experience.
Another common complaint involves the riding height of the lawn mower. Many of the consumer reports discussed above note that a significant height difference occurs when the rider is working the lawn mower. The result is that it becomes difficult to comfortably work on the lawn. This can be remedied by choosing a riding height that is higher than you would typically choose for an electric mower. It is important to note that some larger riding mowers will only be able to accommodate larger riders.
A few other complaints relate to the noise a typical rear self propelled lawn mower makes. While it is true that most electric mowers are much quieter than traditional gas powered models, some consumers will still notice the loud exhaust whistling from the rear mower. When a quieter mower is desired, it may be necessary to purchase an upgrade for your lawn mower that has an exhaust muffler.
Many owners also report trouble locating the fuel tank of their equipment. It is difficult to locate the tank without assistance and the task may even become dangerous. Most of the mechanisms that hold the fuel tank in place can be easily removed without too much difficulty. Many consumers choose to install an accessory called a tank bag to ensure they locate the tank easily. This will also help reduce spills that may occur due to the failure of the fuel tank bag.
One final area of frustration is with the lack of control a rear lawn mower offer. Some users have difficulty getting the machine to cut around obstacles or in tight spaces. These obstacles range from mailbox branches to tree limbs. Owners may be frustrated with the lack of control because many of the available accessories do not offer much in the way of control.
