Lawn Mower Terms

If you have just switched from apartment living to a home, it may be time to purchase a lawn mower. There are several different types of lawn mowers available that can be used to take care of your yard. Before heading out to the store, learn these essential lawn mower definitions.

  • Tractor - A motorized ride on vehicle with a seat used on a farm that sits mounted on high tires and is steered with a wheel. A tractor is often used for pulling other machinery.
  • Push Mower - A gas or electric powered mower that a person stands behind and walks across a yard. There is no seat on this type of device.
  • Bagging- Disposing of grass clippings so that your lawn has a fresh and clean look. The clippings typically go into a bag automatically and then can be dumped into a trash can.
  • Mulching - When a ride on mower or push mower throws grass clipping back onto the growing grass to increase the richness of the soil.
  • Automatic Trimmer - A cordless, battery powered small device that will work its way across grass and trim it by itself.
  • Manual Mower - An old fashion mower that is not powered by electricity or an engine. These devices are cheaper than their motorized counterparts and are optimal for small lawns.
  • Topiary - Bushes that are cut into specific shapes, typically animals.
  • Edger - A device used for trimming lawns. It is motorized and contains multiple sharp blades. This item can be used to trim weeds near gardens.
  • Warranty - A manufacturer's agreement that comes with many expensive mowers. The company is responsible for repairing parts on your device if something breaks while the product is covered by the warranty.
  • Pests- Anything that negatively effects grass or plants. Both insects and weeds can be considered pests.

    Lawn mowers, which replaced the old-fashioned scythe, were invented in 1827. These early walking mowers were pushed along sporting yards and other grassy areas by professional maintenance men. They were powered by internal combustion engines, and they often required maintenance and repair. It wasn't until the 1900s that gas and electric mowers were invented. These more modern lawn mowers became popular in the 1950s, and they enabled home owners to trim their grass faster. They also allowed owners to cut down any weeds that appeared in their lawns and gardens. These mid-century mowers were sometimes manual, sometimes automatic. They featured sharp blades and other moving parts. They also came complete with cords and bags designed to catch grass clippings. Their wheels grew rusty over time, and home owners often needed to repair them, but they were still far more advanced that the lawn mowers of the 1800s. Later in the century, inventors introduced newer, better battery powered lawn mowers. They also introduced the first tractors and seated mowers. These mowers, which owners could easily ride on, featured large tires and blades. They also featured comfortable seats and impressive motors. They were not nearly as cheap as their predecessors, but they could still be purchased for a fair price by home owners willing to buy them used. Owners loved that they were able to ride on these mowers, and they appreciated the larger bags that came attached to them. For this reason, riding mowers quickly became popular throughout America. These days tractors and other riding mowers are still popular, but you can still see older push models around as well!
