1) Reliability and Durability
Exactly how reliable and durable a lawn mower is, depends partly on the quality of the lawn mower (the make of the parts), and also on you! It is important to choose the right type of lawn mower for your lawn. You can’t really complain if you choose a push mower to work on an oversized garden and the mower didn’t last as long as you would like it too.

What you can do when you buy a lawn mower is to choose the right type, and then look at the parts to see whether they are made to last. A good way to do this is to read the reviews by users. I’d look for a longer manufacturer’s warranty too!

2) Efficiency
The bigger the lawnmower, the bigger the blade will be. This affects how fast and efficient your lawn mower cuts your grass.

There is less physical assertion (easy on the arms, back, and legs in the long run!) involved when using a self-propelled mower.

A word of caution: take note that higher horsepower doesn’t necessarily mean higher quality mowing!

3) Low Maintenance
Don’t be fooled! All lawn mowers need maintenance but some need less maintenance and are better suited for those with limited mechanical abilities!

Check whether you are comfortable with cleaning the air filter, changing the oil and checking spark plugs. If you are, your lawn mower can last you for a long time.

Push mowers are generally cheaper and tend to break down less. This means fewer maintenance costs as well.

How much you can afford to pay for the lawnmower and how long would you need to use it can help you determine the price range and quality of the lawnmower that is best for you.

4) Convenience
When browsing the various models of lawn mowers, look for good features that will make mowing a more convenient task to do. Use your mowing experience or try to imagine yourself using the lawn mower on your lawn; will it be a strain on your back and arms? Will you run over the cord?

There are cordless lawn mowers like this one: Black & Decker CMM1200.

Some mowers are designed so that when you stop the blades, the engine keeps on running until you off it so that you don’t have to choke start it again. If you like this feature, then Toro Recycler 20333 is good.
