USA: Lawn Mowers: Lawn Mower Manufacturers
ABOUT LAWN MOWERS
Most lawn mowers are gasoline powered, and have a horizontally rotating twin cutter. Some models discharge the grass clippings to the ground; others collect them in a bag or box fixed to the back of the lawn mower. Walk-behind lawn mowers will typically have a cutting width of between 18 inches and 20 inches. Ride-on lawn mowers may have cutting widths of 42 inches or more. Their wider cutting width, coupled with faster speed across the ground, gives much greater overall cutting speed compared to a walk-behind lawn mower.
Electric lawn mowers are also available. These may be corded, or cordless. Cordless lawn mowers have a battery, which can be charged up overnight. They typically can cut up to a third of an acre when fully charged.
The most environmentally friendly type of lawn mower is the cylinder push mower. This uses no fuel and produces no pollution.
