What are you looking for in a lawn mower? Maybe you have to cut grass on a slope, and you're looking for an alternative to the standard equipment -- something that will make your life easier. If you find fueling a machine messy business, you may be looking for the cleanliness offered by electric -- whether a corded unit or a cordless one (battery-powered) -- or propane. Or if you're concerned about the environment, you may be drawn to reel mowers -- they don't pollute the air. You've come to the right place! These lawn mower reviews should help you in your search.

For some consumers, the main drawback to propane lawn mowers may revolve around the use of the 16.4-ounce propane tanks: Currently, fewer convenience stores sell them than sell gasoline. If more people begin using propane-powered equipment, more outlets may start carrying these propane tanks. Read my propane lawn mower review to see if you might want to swap gasoline for propane as an energy source for some yard maintenance tasks (propane string trimmers
also exist now).
Battery-powered units retain a corded option in case you can't quite finish mowing a large expanse on battery power. Switch between corded or cordless modes as you see fit (of course, you need a cord to plug it in to recharge the battery, anyway). But I prefer the freedom of the cordless mode, myself, as do most people. See what I have to say about Remington's battery-powered lawn mower in this review (product may be temporarily unavailable).
Gas-powered units are messy. Not only that, but when the gas can runs dry, you have to drop what you're doing and drive to the gas station to get more fuel. A real pain, right? Many people used to shy away from the alternative offered by electric, because the cord got in the way. But this lawn mower review looks at an alternative to the alternative: cordless electric mowers.
