Self-Propelled vs Push Mowers

Self-Propelled vs Push Mowers

Finding the right lawn mower to suit your property and lawn needs can be tricky, especially if it's been a while since you last shopped for a new lawn mower. The lawn care world is booming with different types of mowers that offer innovative features and streamlined designs, making mowers more agile and powerful than ever! When it comes to the Push Mowers vs Self-Propelled Mowers, there are pros and cons of both, but we are here to help you make the right investment.

What is the difference?

As per the name, the Self-Propelled Mower has a drive system to propel it forward; whereas, the push mower requires manual effort to move. Therefore, if you mainly need your mower to get you through hills and rough terrain the self-propelled mower is for you. However, if your lawn is flat, curvy or filled with obstacles and tight spaces, you will benefit from the push mower and its manoeuvrability.
