How-To: Usage hints and care instructions for battery lawn mower

Best practices for battery lawn mower usage and care.

1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for a battery lawn mower

1.1 Lawn Size

In choosing the right lawnmower, the lawn size will be decisive. The lawn size will determine several features, including types, self-propelled features, weights, deck sizes, etc. In other words, this one feature will directly impact other features.

If your lawn is huge, then a petrol lawn mower will prove to be the best. While a small lawn can be mowed using a hand mower as well. However, you can choose an electric or battery lawn mower for a small to medium size lawn.

As mentioned above, a lawn mower influences various other factors. For example, if you choose to buy a battery lawn mower, then lawn size will also decide the cutting width, battery running time, glass box size, etc.

1.2 Cutting Height

This feature determines how tall or short you will cut the grass. The cutting height will vary between 20 and 70 mm for each of the models you are considering. Also, lawnmowers come with a minimum cutting height of 30 millimetres, which could prove frustrating on short lawns!

Standard lawn height is between 35 and 45 mm, short lawn height is between 20 and 30 mm, and pasture height is 50 to 60 mm. Different height settings come in handy for different conditions. You can choose between 3 to 8 height options that most of the lawn mower come with. And you can adjust them with a single lever. Lawn size plays a crucial role here as well. A lawn mower bought for a small lawn will have fewer height adjustment options as compared to a mower designed for large size garden.

A lawn mower bought for a small lawn will have fewer height adjustment options as compared to a mower designed for large size garden.

1.3 Cutting Width

Cutting width helps in determining how much lawn grass you will be able to cut in one go. For example, let’s say that the cutting width is 35 cm, which means you will cut a strip of lawn measuring 35cm in one shot.

Again the lawn size comes into the picture. A large lawn will need a mower with a bigger cutting width. If you use a mower with a small cutting width to cut the grass of a large lawn, it will take you quite a number of hours.

Here is a table giving you a bird’s eye of lawn size and cutting width.

Small (up to 200m²)

30-34 cm

Medium (201m²-350m²)

1.4 Grass Box

And we said lawn size determines the grass collection box capacity as well. A small-capacity grass box will do for a small garden, and a large lawn will call for the bigger capacity box. The capacity of a grass box is measured in litres, and for a lawn size of about 200m², you need at least a 25-litre box. Besides, a grass box of 30 to 50 litres capacity will also do for a small garden. Whereas for a medium-sized lawn, you need at least a 40 -50 litres capacity box, and 60 litres will suffice for a large size garden.

There are also lawn mowers that have a ‘fill indicator.’ It notifies you when the box is full, and you save your time by not checking the grass box again and again to empty it.

1.5 Weight

It would help if you did not overlook this factor until you buy a self-propelled or robotic lawn mower that pretty much works on its own. But, also, you can’t underestimate it just because you are not purchasing a manual lawn mower. In fact, between electric and battery lawn mowers, the latter is heavier as it carries the weight of the battery.

If your battery lawn mower is hand-propelled, check the material used to make that mower because if it has more metal, it will increase the machine’s weight. And more weight simply means more strength required to push it, operate it. For example, petrol mowers have a lot of metal. That’s why they are usually the heaviest. Similarly, mowers suitable for bigger lawns are bulky because of their larger frames and wider cutting blades.

1.6 Battery Type

Maximum battery-powered lawnmowers run on either lithium battery or lead-acid battery, and each type has its own set of pros and cons. 

  • Lithium Battery  It is lighter, charge faster (an hour), costs less, has a longer lifespan and is more efficient. Moreover, this type of battery runs until it fully discharges before recharging it.

  • Heavy Lead Acid Battery – They are bulky, heavier and need more time to recharge (12 hours). It can’t be used continuously. You need to recharge it after using 50 – 80% of its capacity.

Perhaps, it is so many downsides of the heavy lead-acid battery that new coming battery lawn mowers use lithium-ion batteries.

1.7 Battery Runtime

If you are interested to find out how long the battery will function, just check the voltage in respect with the Amp Hour (Ah). It will give you an idea of not just run time but also about the power. The higher the Ah, the longer it will last before you recharge it. Lawn mowers come with either battery - 2.0 Ah or 4.0 Ah.

Usually, a battery runs for a minimum of 30 minutes and a maximum of 60 minutes. They can mow 5,000 square feet to 10,000 square feet within this period before you have to recharge the battery. For a small to medium-sized lawn, you don’t need long runtime. But same is not the case when the yard is large-sized.

One of the best thing about battery lawn mowers is that you can just keep spare batteries. Once the battery comes to zero and you don’t intend to charge it soon, you can just put new batteries and continue the work.

1.8 Power

You also need to check the power, i.e. voltage. It the performance of a battery-powered lawn mower. The measuring unit is volts. Some cordless lawn mower has batteries as low as 18 V, while powerful batteries can be up to 80 V. The underpowered models can slow down the blade while mowing, especially tough or thick grass/weed. However, these are lighter, have maximum mobility around obstacles, affordable, and very much suited for small yards. 

High voltage lawnmowers can easily generate more power required for self-propelled wheels. They provide additional torque to cut through dense grass effortlessly. They, of course, perform better and are best suited for medium-large gardens. Also, they are expensive. Moreover, a more voltage battery also means a heavy battery that needs more power to drive it forward. It eventually affects the runtime as well.

Perhaps that’s the reason 40 V battery is widely used. It has the best of both worlds. Some mowers also use a combination of two batteries running simultaneously.

1.9 Battery Lifetime

Not just the battery’s runtime but lifetime also matters. For example, the battery of a cordless lawn mower should normally function well for five years. However, the lifespan is influenced by several other factors such as the number of charging cycles, the intensity of usage and the battery’s maintenance & storage. As a result, the battery's life reduces every year, and that you will have to replace it over time.

As a result, the battery's life reduces every year, and that you will have to replace it over time. 

1.10 Battery Charging Time

Another factor that plays quite a role in the case of cordless mower is battery recharge time. If you could do with your lawn by charging the battery once then, that’s great, but what if you have to charge the battery in-between the job. That’s when this feature comes into the picture more.

Battery taking a long time can be frustrating. After all, you don’t have a whole day! Models whose batteries can take only 30 minutes which need a big wallet. However, most cordless mower batteries take around 60-120 minutes to recharge. If you think your mower is taking more time than you can bear, getting those extra batteries can be a saviour.

1.11 Battery Power Share

If you choose the battery lawn mower amongst a larger range of tools that you already use, then some brands do give you an option to share power between tools. This feature really helps in saving some money, as you can only purchase a bare tool. Greenworks, for example, if you have a good collection of their battery-powered tools, then you can use the same battery in their cordless lawn mowers. Even Einhell also gives that option for its tools coming under the Power-X-Change product line.

1.12 Charger

If your product has a battery, then, of course, it will come with its charger as well. But what amazes us is some mowers, using two batteries simultaneously, comes with a single battery charger. If your lawnmower does come with two batteries, ensure it has a dual charger as well because that will offer speed and convenience.

If your lawnmower does come with two batteries, ensure it has a dual charger as well because that will offer speed and convenience.

1.13 Blade Speed

When we talk about a mower’s blade, we need to consider two things, i.e. their movement style and speed.

Movement Style

Lawn mower blades spin either on a vertical or horizontal axis and are known as ‘rotary mowers’ and ‘reel mowers’, respectively. Reel lawn mowers have three to seven ribbon-like blades that form a cylindrical shape when connected. In contrast, rotary blades are limited to one flat blade that attaches to the underneath of the machine. If the grass has low height, choose reel mowers, while rotary mowers perform better at higher mowing heights. However, reel mowers have a hard time chopping up twigs and going over rocks.

Speed

Blade speed determines the performance offered by a lawn mower, be it electric or cordless. It is measured in round per minute (RPM). The higher speed gives excellent cutting performance and thus offer clean cuts while mowing the grass in your yard. Different mowers have different blade speeds. Usually, the range remains 1500 RPM to 3000 RPM. Choose the one that comes with a higher blade speed. Some lawn mowers also allow you to adjust the blade speed.

1.14 Handles

A comfortable handle enhances the mowing experience. And if it is adjustable, even better because then you will not have to bend while mowing. Also, if the handle is padded, it will offer extra comfort and absorb vibrations (ergonomic handles).

1.15 Ease of Use

Nobody wants a machine that eases your work, but itself, it isn't easy to use. However, thankfully, most battery lawn mowers are straightforward to understand and operate.

For ease of use, consider factors like adjustable cutting height, adjustable handle. What’s more? You might also consider it is easy to store the mower. Consider its dimensions and ensure that it will fit in the garden shed. If it has a foldable handle and grass bag, it will be really helpful. If your new mower could be stored vertically, it will be the cherry on the cake.

1.16 Self-Propelled vs Push

This is another factor to consider while choosing lawnmowers, whether or not it is battery-operated or any other type.

Hand-Propelled Model – A hand-propelled mower will not offer any mechanical assistance. You will be required to push and steer by yourself. However, it is affordable and suitable for mowing small to medium size yards. In the case of the hand-propelled model, if you want to reduce the workload while not compromising on the cutting performance, get a mower with a poly deck (reduce weight) and low rolling resistance wheels. It will ease your job.

It will ease your job.

1.17 Safety Options

Safety is of utmost importance while using a machine as big and heavy as a mower. You could lose control over it anytime, and then the chances of happening accident multiplies.

Some models come with a handle that must be held in place while using the machine. When it is released, it stops the blades. But some people find them uncomfortable and stiff. Moreover, it becomes rather tiresome when mowing. Therefore, get a mower that is easy to use as well as safe. All battery mowers have a safety button that is to be pressed with one hand whilst the other hand remains on the OPC lever.

The safety key is another essential factor to look for as it prevents the mower from being started when the key is removed.

Another safety function to look for is guards and flaps, as that will not let the mower shoot debris at you.

Locking mechanism keeping the battery in place, trigger locks, childproof starting mechanism, stone deflectors are some other safety factors that are worth considering.

1.18 Grass Clippings

Grass clipping usually comes with three options, i.e. bagging, mulching and side or rear discharging. A few models offer all three options, and others let you choose based on your preference and lawn size.

Under bagging, you have to check the bag size and its volume to hold the clippings. So, yes, it is the same as the grass collection bag discussed in detail in the 1.4 feature.

Some mowers have a mulch plug, which converts the mower from bagging to mulching mode. When you choose this setting, the finely chopped grass gets redistributes on your lawn and not collected in the grass box. However, mulching should be preferred for lawn maintenance and not lawn makeover because too many grass clippings can damage the healthy grass of the lawn.

The last option is relatively self-explanatory. In this also grass is discharged on the lawn, but you choose the manner of discharge. The rear discharge model will discharge out trimmings from behind and more evenly instead of doing that from the side and covering a larger area in the process. Usually, rear discharge models are preferred as they do better than side discharge mowers.

1.20 Steel or Poly Deck

A gasoline mower has either aluminium or steel decks, but a battery-powered mower comes with poly decks. Steel is anytime more durable than aluminium or poly decks. But poly is designed to make subtle changes easily in their shape, optimizing airflow for better lifting, mulching, and bagging as compared to a steel deck. 

If your lawn has many small rocks, choose a mower with a steel deck; else, a poly deck is good enough.

1.21 Adjustable Height Setting

Lawn care experts recommend that you cut your grass at a level that is no shorter than thirty per cent of its overall height. Cutting your grass below this level will weaken it and make it prone to disease. Also, it becomes less resilient during hot, dry weather.

A lawn mower with an adjustable height feature is helpful because grass length can vary depending on factors - how often it is mowed or how fast it grows.

When searching for this feature, it is essential to consider two aspects. The effortless manner in which the mower's height can be set and the options available for height adjustment. Speaking of the first part, lawn mowers have different levers for each wheel, but this option makes things difficult at times because bringing all wheels to one level is not easy. Additionally, some mowers adjust all the wheels at once with a single lever. However, a single lever doesn’t mean a smooth ride always. In fact, when the lever is placed more centrally to the mower’s deck, it can be adjusted more fluidly and easily.

If we talk about the second option, then get a mower with a minimum of three height options.

However, regular you might be cutting your lawn’s grass, you always need this feature in your mower as grass height varies with the season, and then adjustable height setting proves to be a saviour.

3.10 What mower should be cleaned, especially around the vents, power source connections, and under the deck?

Proper cleaning of the mower will keep it in the best operating condition for a longer time. In addition, cleaning the mower, especially around the vents, power source connections, and under the deck, reduces the strain on the motor.

When grass or debris are built upon under the deck near the blade, it takes the blade a lot of effort to spin, which puts strain on the motor. Moreover, the grass in those areas can break down the component because the chemical makeup of the grass breaks down and preys on the mower's parts over time.
