Factors to Consider When Buying
When purchasing your new lawn mower, the price will always be a key consideration. It may be tempting to purchase the most expensive lawnmower you can see, and this may be OK depending upon your budget constraints. You should, however, consider the fact that you will have other expenses in the lines of maintenance, fueling and storage. These can add up in the long run. Value depreciation is another area to consider, along with the lifespan of the lawnmower vs the cost.
Of course, a key consideration when choosing your new machinery will be the actual size of your garden. For most, a simple push lawnmower will be quite enough. The purchase of a sizeable ride-on lawnmower could be viewed as a waste of money or in the worst of cases simply not feasible due to a lack of space. If you are the owner of a large sized garden though, this is a choice you will have to make.
Something which many people will neglect to consider is the running cost. This will include fuel and other issues which will require servicing and upkeep throughout the years. A lawnmower, after all, is a motorized machine in most cases, and just like your car, can be subject to engine troubles and a host of other issues. Naturally, the running cost associated with lawnmowers tends to rise as the engine size increases. This means that ride-on lawnmowers will typically be the most expensive to run.
Another important consideration to make which many forget to make is storage space. This will go a long way in determining the size of the lawnmower you purchase. There should be at least adequate and sheltered space to safely stow your mower. As mentioned, this place would preferably be a garage which is sheltered and where there is ample space to move your lawnmower in and out. The bigger models, especially ride-on mowers, will of course take up considerably more space.
