Zero Emissions with an Electric Lawn Mower

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 25, 2012

If you are thinking about how you can “go green” around the house and make a little difference in reducing air pollution, consider an electric lawn mower. Electric lawn mowers can really reduce pollution levels. Gas-powered lawn mowers emit an average of about 10 pounds of air pollution per year. The new, upgraded electric models emit zero pollution.

The Toro e-Cycler electric lawn mower is an electric lawn mower for homeowners who want to try and go a little greener. This is the greenest of the recycler lawn mowers. With no gas, no oil and no emissions, you can go cordless and get Green! Introducing the NEW e-Cycler battery powered lawn mower. No more gas, oil and virtually no maintenance. Just plug in and power-up, un-plug and mow.

  • No Maintenance - No more refueling messes. No more harmful emissions while cutting your lawn.* *Compared to a gas powered walk behind mower.
  • 36 Volt System - The 36 volt cordless system is powerful and emission-free. Cuts 7,000-10,000 sq. ft. on a single charge. Battery charges to 70% in 3 hours, 100% overnight.
  • 20" Steel Mulching Deck - The 4", deep-domed deck design is specially designed for superior mulching performance.
  • Lightweight Design - Weighs only 77 lbs - lighter than most other battery/cordless mowers.
  • Easy to Operate Controls - Simple two-step operator controls - integrated one-handed control assembly with two-step action. Safe and easy to use.
  • 2 Year Performance Warranty - If anything goes wrong, under normal use and maintenance, Toro will fix it free!* (Includes the battery)

A Lawn Mower is not One-Size-Fits-All

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 18, 2012

Choosing a new lawn mower is not an easy task. In particular, first time buyers have a hard time because they often don’t know exactly what they want in a lawn mower.

J&J Small Engine Clinic wants to find the best lawn mower or yard equipment to fit your needs. Big box stores often offer a one-size-fits-all model. But there are so many  choices that can fit your lawn, your budget, your time limits and convenience.

When it comes to buying lawn and yard equipment, local dealers are less expensive because they can offer you better choices. J&J Small Engine Clinic will sell you power tools that you will use rather than just store.

The type, style and size of the lawn makes a difference when buying a lawn mower. Is your lawn flat or hilly? Do you have lots of flower beds? Is it large or small? Are you mowing the lawn or are your kids? The size of the lawn mower bed can make a big difference in the amount of time you spend mowing.

For the best lawn mower for your life and home, contact J&J Small Engine Clinic.

Lawn Care Through Heat and Drought

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 11, 2012

With little rain and Massachusetts already in a drought, it is important to know how to take care of your lawn in the hot weather during drought conditions. Lawn care and keeping your lawn healthy requires attention including watering and mowing, and it also requires properly maintained lawn equipment to make it look its best.

Always sharpen mower blades. Don’t’ cut your lawn with a dull mower blade. When you do, you in effect give your lawn “split ends”. If you cut your lawn with a dull blade, don’t cut it again to “fix it”. The leaf blades actually shred and give your green lawn a white cast. Instead, have the mower blades sharpened then give the lawn a nice trim in a few days.

Don't mow too short. It is important to mow to the proper height and not cut it all the way down to the dirt. If you remove too much grass at once, the quality of your lawn will be affected. When you cut your lawn too short, your lawn will turn brown very quickly.  Rule of thumb, never take more than 1/3 of the leaf off at one time.

Always read the directions on lawn nutrients. Whether you fertilize or apply follow the directions on the bag.

Growing a nice lawn is a process, not a treatment and requires the right lawn equipment. Effort and the right yard equipment can give  you  a great lawn even in the summer heat.
