These mowers are also lower in price because they don’t have the self-propelling feature. Some people enjoy the exercise benefits of pushing a lawnmower.
But Hills and inclines require even more energy, and for those who either don’t want this challenge — or are physically unable to endure it — a self-propelled mower may be a better choice. The other drawback to corded models is the possibility of hitting the cord with the mower blades.

. To avoid Possibility of hitting the cord many owners just follow a simple pattern to always keep the cord on the outside that it doesn’t interfere with the mower is to cut at right angles to the line of the previous mowing. If the work has been carried in a north-south line, then the next cutting should be in an east-west direction. (Fig 2)
. Inspect the whole wire once carefully before starting the mower. If wire is damage, it must be dangerous not only for the user but also for others like pets children etc. So repair it if possible or change the wire and be sure now it will not harmful for anyone before restarting.

Fuel Powered Mowers
The advantage of choosing the fuel powered mower over other types of lawn mowers is that there are many benefits in its favor.

Whatever you do, if you are taking your riding mower along a gentle slope or across a patch of damp grass take it easy, stay alert for trouble spots.
