Reel mowers work best for smaller residential lawns
If you prefer to live an eco-friendly lifestyle, then consider reel mowers when you mow your lawn. Sears carries a wide selection of name brand reel mowers that don't require gas, oil or tune-ups to operate efficiently. Reel mowers feature adjustable steel blades that clip the grass evenly, and the larger wheels make it easy to push the mower through thicker grass or over uneven terrain. Sun Joe reel mowers include catchers that collect the grass clippings as you mow, and the lack of an engine provides a quiet solution to mowing the grass any time of day or night.
Cordless rechargeable mowers come in handy when you need a little more power for mowing smaller yards. Remington and Black & Decker cordless mowers feature up to 36-volt rechargeable batteries that cut up to 12,000 square feet on a single charge. The Black & Decker 36-volt 3-in-1 electric mower provides mulching, bagging and discharging all in one unit. Like the reel mower, a rechargeable mower doesn't use oil or gas, and it comes in self-propelled models with key, pull and push-button starters.
Dethatchers remove unwanted clumps of grass roots from your lawn. Before you mow the grass, use a Craftsman electric dethatcher to remove thatch from your yard. Thatch buildup prevents the grass roots from receiving the water and nutrients it needs to grow and thrive. A dethatcher features steel tines that remove the thatch without destroying the grass in the surrounding area. The Craftsman dethatcher easily adjusts without the need for additional tools, and the padded handle makes it easy to hold and operate as you remove thatch from your lawn.
Reel mowers and cordless mowers work best for smaller yards under one acre. For larger yards, consider tractors and accessories for improving your efficiency as you mow the lawn. If you have multiple trees and shrubbery in your yard, then use a zero-turn tractor to maneuver easily around the obstacles. Craftsman Turn Tight garden tractors also cut grass around tight corners, and you can attach a cart to the back for hauling equipment or garden supplies. Some riding mowers feature 54-inch cutting decks, which cut more surface area with each pass. With a spring-loaded deck lift and a hydrostatic automatic transmission, the Craftsman yard tractor gives you power and versatility over flat and uneven terrain.
Reel mowers work best for small yards and feature adjustable blades that cut the grass evenly. Cordless mowers provide more power and cut a 1/4-acre on a single charge, and dethatchers remove unwanted thatch from ruining the look of your yard.
