Aside from technical problems and normal wear & tear, it could be time for a new lawnmower if the size or shape of your lawn has changed or if your own mobility needs change.
Not all lawnmowers work on all types of lawns so it is important to choose the right one. In general, the main things which affect the type of mower you choose are lawn slopes or inclines, a bigger garden which may mean an eclectic mower with cables doesn’t suit, your preference of mulching or the collection of clippings collection and of course, whether you want to mow the lawn yourself – hello, robotic lawnmowers!
Check out our handy buyer’s guide for detailed information to help you chose.
If your trusty lawnmower has started to falter, then make sure you check the manual for any straight forward troubleshooting tips. If things can’t be fixed simply, then this will inevitably be a question of repairing it or replacing it with a new mower.
