Lawn Mowers (67)
Keep your lawn looking well-groomed with lawn mowers from Rona. For such a simple function and design, these pieces of outdoor power equipment are remarkably versatile. Three-in-one models of power lawn mowers give you the option to select side discharge, bagging, or mulching.
If green performance is a priority there are two main options. The first is an electric lawn mower that runs on household current via an extension cord. The second option is a manual push mower. Both types of lawn mower never require fuel refills and produce no emissions. The trade off between the two is that while a motorised unit requires less effort to use, a manual model is more compact and weighs less. Both types have a lower operating cost than gas-powered lawn mowers.
Another option beyond the standard gas variety, is cordless. Cordless models run on batteries, just like other standard power tools. Using lithium-ion or other new battery technology, the power cells of these mowers are resistant to forming a memory. They also deliver consistent speed and cutting power until the charge is nearly depleted.
Look for a self-propelled or assisted power mower when want to spare yourself some effort. Any mower except for manual can be self-propelled. These models accelerate on their own when you engage the dead-man bar and stop when you release it. A self-propelled lawn mower is a lifesaver when the property has hills and other uneven terrain.
If you’re using a gas-powered mower, another major convenience feature to look for is an assisted start function. Most gas lawn mowers use a pull cord. Higher-end manufacturers are redesigning the cords to better harness the kinetic motion of the recoil for more consistent starts. This means that what might have once taken you up to a dozen pulls can now require only one, two, or three to get started.
