If you are looking for a way to help with your lawn and garden but want to have a little more control than is possible with a mower, you may wish to consider getting a motorized spindle mower. While not as powerful as some other types of lawn and garden machinery, it still can cut through thick grass without much trouble and work to get any type of lawn mowing job done.
An electric lawnmower is very useful for those that have small yards where they only have one or two areas that need to be cut. The first thing to decide is if you will be using the motor to mow long grass or just short grass. If you are using the lawnmower to cut grass only on the edges of your yard, you will probably want to use an electric mower that has more power and can easily cut over an area that is just too large for a rotary mower. However, if you are only cutting short grass and want a mower that can be used for many different jobs around the yard, then a motorized lawnmower might be what you need.
Before you buy your mower, you need to take some measurements of the area you want it to work in. Some models can work with both mowing grass and riding over rough surfaces while others work best with one particular purpose. If you are looking at the mower as a tool to help with yard work instead of just for work on the lawn, you will probably want to get a larger model so you can be sure the lawnmower is able to get the job done without too much trouble.
There are many different brands of motorized spindles, but the most popular ones tend to be those that are powered by gasoline. A gas powered spindle mower can be used for many different jobs around the yard as it is very powerful, but it is also very heavy, which may be a problem on some areas of the yard. If you are not sure whether or not you will be using it outdoors or indoors, you should look at the gas engine for a while before deciding. As a rule of thumb, gas powered motors tend to be more expensive than their electric models and might not be a good choice for you if you do not have a lot of money to spend. If you want the best of both worlds and want to have the power you need for both work and pleasure in the yard, then gas powered lawnmowers might be the way to go.
Electric lawnmowers can be more affordable than gas powered lawnmowers, but they are not as versatile and can not handle as much work in a smaller area. If you have a large yard and want to be able to mow in all areas, a motorized mower may not be the right option for you. Also, some models of electric lawnmowers tend to have a motor that is loud or does not quiet at all which could be a problem if you live in an area that gets a lot of traffic. If you live in an area where there are a lot of people, then electric lawnmowers may not be a good option.
When buying a mower, you should know what you will be using the mower for. You will need to decide how often you will be using it and how many hours of each kind of mowing you will do, because this will determine the size of the motor. If you will be doing a lot of and want something that is powerful, then a bigger motor may be what you need. If you only need a light weight lawnmower for work around the yard, then a small motor will be just fine.
