In the market for your next lawn mower? Then start the process by considering what will power that next mower. Today’s options feature more choices than ever before with significant technology improvements in gas push mowers and expanding options in battery. Ultimately, your lawn and how you prefer to mow should guide you in picking out the walk behind mower that will help you keep your lawn looking great all summer long.

  • How big is your yard?

    While a gas push mower can easily handle a 1/2 acre yard or less, run times of battery-powered mowers are limited due to battery size and are most useful for lawns 1/4 acre or less.

  • What's your yard like?

    If it’s got slopes, ditches or other uneven terrain, a gas mower can handle those challenges without impacting run times. If it’s mostly flat, battery or gas are both viable options.

  • How long does it take you to mow your lawn?

    30-45 minutes? You may be cutting it close with a battery-powered mower, which can range in run time from 25 to 45 minutes, whereas a gas mower can easily get the job done.

  • What features do you need?

    Easy starting? Self-propel? Easy maintenance? Takes up as little space as possible? Makes less noise? Gas and battery-powered lawn mowers have solutions to all of these needs.

  • What's your budget?

    Features can vary the price of mowers greatly, but you often get more for your money with gas mowers. For example, a self-propelled gas mower can retail as low as $269 compared to a self-propelled battery-powered mower at $499.^
