20 facts in comparison
A gas-powered lawn mower offers several benefits over an electric one. For example, the increased power allows them to easily cut through longer/tougher grass, and they are not limited by cord length or how long the battery lasts.
Cordless tools/machines are suited to a variety of different situations, as you are not limited to only working in places with power sources nearby.
A self-propelled lawn mower requires less effort from the user, as you don’t have to manually push it forward.

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.

A rotary mower cuts the grass with a blade or disc that rotates on a vertical axis. They have the benefit of requiring little maintenance, and are often cheaper and more lightweight than, for example, a cylinder lawn mower.
With a mulching feature the grass cuttings are further cut into finely chopped grass which is then expelled onto the lawn, fertilising it and making it more drought resistant. This also means you do not have to empty a grass bag/box.
More cutting height settings give you more versatility to choose the optimum length for your lawn, based on prevailing conditions.

With a blade brake you can stop the rotation of the blades without cutting off the engine. This is useful if you need to clear debris from the lawn mower, or travel across a gravel area.
With a wider cutting width you will have to make less passes when mowing your lawn, reducing the time it takes. This is especially important if you have a large lawn.

A higher cutting height is needed when your lawn doesn’t have optimum conditions, for example when there is extreme heat or cold, as a longer leaf allows it to stay healthy.

A shorter cutting height can allow you to have a nicer looking lawn, but only if there are optimum conditions such as warm weather and moderate sunlight.

An overhead valve (OHV) engine is usually found in high-end models, and provides more power and fuel economy than a side valve design.
This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
A lawn mower with variable speed is beneficial because you may wish to slow down or speed up based on the area you are mowing, for example going slower when making tight turns around a tree.
An adjustable handlebar allows you to set it to the correct height of the user, making it more ergonomic to use. It is especially useful if multiple people are going to use it as it can be set differently for each person.

The lawn mower has a lever which allows you to easily raise the front wheels, making it easier to pivot and manoeuvre.
