Many people like self-propelled lawn mowers which drive themselves and all you have to do is steer it in the right direction. However, others like to take the rough road and employ the use of a manual or push mower. A manual mower is operated without any assisted propulsion and relies on the person mowing to push it. Although it is more workload than other lawn mowers like gas mowers, it can be potentially more fulfilling. So what would compel someone to buy a manual mower?
Benefits of a manual lawn mower
- Very reliable
Most problems with lawn mowers occur due to the drivetrain. Maintenance needs to be done more often. Without a drivetrain, the manual mower has significantly less repair problems although the model is also a factor.
- Offers a worthy workout
Without help from the lawn mower, pushing it around the yard is basically a workout routine. Although you won’t gain as much from a manual mower as when you hit the gym or run, you’ll be in for a workout. Your shoulders and calves could grow. It turns a necessary chore into something worthwhile.
Since many people want self-propelled mowers, manual mowers tend to be cheaper. It is easy to find a good deal on a manual mower, and you can opt for a manual version of a self-propelled mower such as the Honda HRR series.
The only conceivable downside to manual mowers is that they are harder to operate. Here are some of the best manual mowers in the market;
This famous brand sources its engines from Honda. The Husqvarna 7021P is powered by a 160 cc engine and features a 21-inch cutting deck made of heavy duty steel. The heavily treaded front wheels measure 8 inches and the rear wheels 11 inches. It has a folding handle whose height can be adjusted. The most exciting part of this push mower is the rear wheels’ ball bearings introduced so that the mower reacts better to your effort making the chore less tiring.
With the ever reliable Honda engine, the HRR216PKA uses Twin Blade MicroCut System blades on its 21-inch steel cutting deck for better efficiency. The MicroCut System uses four cutting surfaces for mulching, and you can save time previously used to empty the bag. This manual mower can have its height adjusted and has folding handles. It also has an Auto Choke feature which starts the engine the instant you switch it on.
Craftsman is a classic American brand dealing with yard work, and the 37340 does not disappoint. Packing a 140 cc Briggs and Stratton engine, the mower can handle an array of lawn thickness. It also features high rear wheels backed with a height adjusting dual lever. The 21-inch cutting deck getting a 5 ft-lb torque from the engine cuts down tough weeds and grass. You can opt to collect mulch from the side or the rear. The bushel bag also comes with a filter to protect from allergy agents such as dust and pollen.
