General info

1.Is cordless
Scag Cheetah 61
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.
2.Is self-propelled
Scag Cheetah 61
A self-propelled lawn mower requires less effort from the user, as you don’t have to manually push it forward.
3.Is gas-powered
Scag Cheetah 61
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.
4.Has electric start
Scag Cheetah 61
Sometimes it can be hard to start gas-powered lawn mowers, but with an electric starter you can be guaranteed of it starting first time.
5.speed

16km/h

A self-propelled lawn mower which is faster allows you to cut your lawn in less time, as it is quicker to make each pass.
6.Is a riding lawn mower
Scag Cheetah 61
A riding lawn mower is suitable for larger areas, and allows you to finish mowing much faster. It is also useful if you have health problems as you don’t need to walk or push a lawn mower.
7.Has a steel deck
Scag Cheetah 61
A steel deck’s main advantage is that it is durable, and if you hit a stone it will only make a dent rather than fracturing.
A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.
9.Has side discharge
Scag Cheetah 61
The mower can discharge the cut grass to the side. The cut grass helps to fertilise the lawn and helps preserve moisture in the summer, and means that you do not have to empty a grass bag/box. However, this is not as effective as a mulching lawn mower.

Cut quality

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.
2.Has blade brake
Scag Cheetah 61
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.
3.Has mulching feature
Scag Cheetah 61
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.
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.
The cutting height ratio indicates the ratio between the minimum and maximum cutting heights, providing more versatility when choosing the optimum cutting length for your lawn.
The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn that can be made. With a smaller turn radius, it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth to turn around.
A lower minimum cutting height is an advantage if you prefer a shorter grass length for your lawn. However, shorter grass requires good weather conditions to stay lush and green, such as warm weather and moderate sunlight.

Performance

A faster reverse speed makes it quicker to turn around and manoeuvre.
Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.

Features

1.Has variable speed
Scag Cheetah 61
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.
2.Easy height-adjustment
Scag Cheetah 61
You can adjust the height of all four wheels at once, as opposed to some lawn mowers where you have to adjust each wheel separately. This makes it quicker and simpler to adjust the height of the lawn mower.
