Cut quality

1.Has mulching feature
?

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.

2.Has blade brake
?

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. longer maximum cutting height
?

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 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.

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.
