Choosing a lawn mower for your garden is always a delicate matter given the multitude of products on offer. Electric or petrol engine? mulching option? Big over-equipped mower or small model? A professional at Viking gives us some advice to help you find your way: Interview by Caroline Delman What is the first criterion to take into account before buying a mower? The area of the garden! For a plot of small to medium size, up to 800 square meters, prefer a light and handy mower. Beyond 800 square meters a self-propelled mower equipped with accessories with a large cutting surface will be more suitable (beyond about 45cm). Should we favor a petrol or electric motor? It still depends on the area of the land. If it does not exceed 800 square meters and it is not injured, a light electric mower is sufficient. In addition these do not pollute and are silent. On the other hand, if your land exceeds 800 square meters and presents obstacles, you will need a powerful engine, a gasoline mower is then better suited. What about the mulching option? The mulching option allows you to cut the grass into small pieces. This is deposited on the grass and restores its nutrients. Besides this advantage of fertilization, the ecological impact is not negligible since it allows to mow without making waste. Find a whole range of mowers on the price comparison of.
