There are very few things in this world that can evoke memories of summers in the garden like the smell of fresh-cut grass. Beautifully maintained lawns bordered by new blooms always added to the excitement of spring and the promise of warmer weather.

I can vividly recall my Dad firing up the mower on weekends, it’s roar, and petrol fumes mingled with the grass.

Powered by the reliable Briggs & Stratton Engine 300E Series, the Murray EQ300 is easy to use in any small to a medium-sized home garden. With a collapsible and 3 height adjustable ergonomic handle, it’s suited to even the smallest storage shed.

  • Lightweight, making it easy to use and push around your yard.

Cons

  • Users commented that the grass clipping bag was fiddly to remove and reattach, leading to a mess of clippings being spilt.

Cons

  • Handle height isn’t adjustable, not as many cutting heights as the competitors.

The easy electric start is battery operated, with the battery charging automatically when using the mower. Meaning no issues with charging. There are six available cutting height adjustment settings and the foldable, ergonomic handle has three height settings with soft grip for comfort.

Buyers Guide: Petrol Lawn Mowers

Unless you have a small sized garden, most people don’t need a petrol lawn mower.The initial outlay for a petrol or electric lawn mower is typically more than that of an electric one, but the improved power and longer life of these machines make them a good investment.

Some will claim that the demise of petrol lawn mowers is inevitable due to the advancements in lithium-ion batteries. However, for larger lawns, petrol still remains the best option.

A good lawn mower is an investment that will last for many years. Before buying one, it is important to consider the size of the lawn and the type of machine that will work for it.

For larger gardens, a wider cutting width is ideal. It allows the lawn to be cut more smoothly and doesn’t require as many corners or edges to be cut.

However, it’s not as easy to use as a small lawn mower.

A larger grass box will allow you to cut the lawn more effectively and it will take less time to empty it. It’s also beneficial to use a larger grass box since it’s more durable and can handle the additional weight of a lawn mower.

What Is A Petrol Lawn Mower And How Does It Work?

Petrol lawn mowers are one of the most recognizable home gardening hardware items. Gone are the days of painstakingly trimming your lawn with a push or ‘reel’ mower – which relied purely on manpower.

With a large lawn, a petrol mower will work harder and longer. When the grass is thick and long, a petrol engine will allow you to go faster.

With a smaller garden, self-propelled petrol mowers are usually not a concern.

However, if you have a large garden, they can become very tiring to push. This feature is very useful when you want to set the speed of the mower according to the conditions of the terrain and weather.

You can also reduce or even stop the speed to reduce the risk of damaging the surrounding plants. If you are frequently cutting grass, it can add up quickly to the cost of fuel. Look for a model that uses less fuel.

Modern lawn mowers are known as ‘rotary mowers’ consist of a small petrol motor that spins a horizontal blade at high speed to cut grass on contact. Most motors are four-stroke and use minimal unleaded fuel.

The blade is safely contained in what’s known as a deck, which also stops the cut grass, stones and sticks from being flung about. The deck sits atop four wheels, and the petrol motor sits on top of the deck. Add a handle with throttle/brake control and you have your basic lawn mower.

Some will also have a ‘catcher’ for the grass clippings. Simply start up the engine, and push the mower around to achieve a consistently cut, even lawn. For storage space constraints, a compact model with a handle that can be folded down is a great choice.

Also, if you have a lot of space, a hybrid grass collection box is a great option.

Types Of Petrol Lawn Mowers

There are two main types of petrol lawn mowers:

Push Petrol Lawn Mower

Still requiring some physical exertion to push the mower around, a push mowers motor only spins the cutting blade. Better suited to level yards and smaller spaces, they tend to be less expensive than self-propelled mowers.

Self-Propelled Mower

As the name suggests, the motor in these mowers is also responsible for propelling the machine forward. Self propelled mowers make for a much less labour intensive experience for the user. They are best for larger yards or sloped lawns where you’ll be glad of the extra help.

Striped Lawn

Choosing a lawnmower with a rear roller will give your lawn a beautifully striped look. Having rear-rollers also gives your lawnmower a bit more stability so it’s less likely to tip over and put a hole in your flowerbed! Choosing the best petrol lawn mower with a rear roller is an excellent choice if you are going for the striped lawn look. 

Petrol Mower Vs. Electric Lawnmower

A petrol mower can cover a large garden in no time thanks to its powerful engines. While petrol mowers are often more expensive than the best electric lawn mowers, they can handle a wider area than electric mowers. 

You can save a lot of time if you own a petrol lawnmower if you have a big garden.

With considerable cutting widths, petrol lawnmowers are large machines designed for bigger lawns. As a bonus, they come with no cables or plugs that need to stay connected to an outlet, so they’re more flexible too.

Petrol lawnmowers are exceptionally good at cutting more challenging grass and rougher sections of the garden.

Generally, a petrol lawnmower needs more work to keep it in excellent condition over an electric mower. You’ll need to stock up on petrol and make sure that you clean the cutting blades regularly.

How To Choose The Right Petrol Lawn Mower For Your Home

You may think that just wandering down to your local hardware store and picking any old mower will be fine. It may be, but given it represents a larger financial investment and one you want to last, it pays to do your research.

There are some common errors many people make when choosing a lawn mower. To avoid these mistakes, you should be considering a few basic points.

Some of these points cross over with lawnmower types above. We will go further into additional features you may like further on.

Size And Type Of Lawn

Ensure the machine is big enough to manage the length of time required and the terrain you’re mowing.

Check the cutting width and catcher bag size. As a guide choose 28-35cm cutting width for small lawns, for a medium lawn: 35-40cm and for medium/larger lawns 40cm upwards is ideal.

Push Or Self-Propelling

Are you willing and able to push the mower along, or would rather have some help? If a push mower is fine for your needs, just be sure the weight of the machine is on the lower side.

Self Or Pull Start

All mowers will have the choice of self-start via an ignition button or pull start. Pull start can be a little trickier to get the hang of and requires some strength and exertion to fire the motor to life. Pull start can be a challenge, so consider who will be using the lawn mower.

Weight

Similar to the above, who will be using the machine, can they safely maneuver it? Even a self propelled mower machine can be awkward to move when placing back into storage.

Budget

Of course you need to factor in what is a realistic price for your budget and work the other considerations around that and what is available. Expensive doesn’t automatically mean great, cheap might have you buying twice.

What Are The Advantages Of Petrol Lawn Mowers And What Features Should I Look For?

One of the best things about having your own mower is how quickly and easily you can freshen up your lawn. No need to pay for a gardener, waiting for them to be available or to fit into your schedule.

By choosing a petrol lawn mower over a more modern electric lawn mower, you are making it easier than ever.

Safety-wise, there are no cables to risk tripping over or accidentally cutting. Because there is no need to be tethered to a power source, you can mow wherever and whenever you need.

Recoil or electric starter are relatively easy to use and are more reliable, but they can still be a bit of a pain. If you are planning on using a lawn mower, look for one with a convenient electric start. Soft grip handles are designed to minimize vibrations. They are also comfortable to use.

Additionally, petrol-powered motors are usually more powerful and effective than electric so your mower will be more likely to perform well time after time.

In addition to the base criteria above, there are some extra features you may like to consider:

  • Safety, does it have an automatic switch off if the blade becomes entangled?
  • Mulch catcher, do you want the grass clippings to be automatically collected in a grass box for disposal? Or are you okay with them remaining on the lawn? Mulching is a great feature that allows you to keep the grass clippings away from the soil. Instead, they are pushed down into the ground and provide nutrients to the soil. You will want to set the cutting height according to the type of grass you have and the weather conditions. A good selection of cutting height options will allow you to get the job done right.
  • Height Settings will allow you to control how closely you would like the lawn to be cut. It is also handy when mowing areas with an uneven surface as you can set it higher to skim any raised areas. Consider how adjustable the handles are for user height comfort also.
  • Warranty as with any machine, working parts means things can break or go awry. It’s a good idea to ensure your lawn mower has a warranty for at least 12 months.
