Lawn Mower Comparison Chart

Manual-Powered Push-Mower: Better for the Earth, Better for You

  • Good for small to medium-sized yards (those under 3/4 of an acre)
  • You get exercise from powering the mower yourself
  • Quiet — no noise from an electric- or gas-powered engine
  • No gasoline fumes or exhaust means it’s better for the environment
  • Price range: Starts below $100*

Electric-Powered Push-Mower: Quiet but Corded

  • Good for small to medium-sized yards (those under 3/4 of an acre)
  • Being tethered to a cord can be a hassle — it limits your range
  • With cordless models, you need to remember to charge it (one charge usually lasts about 45 minutes)
  • Quieter than gas-powered push-mowers
  • More environmentally friendly than gas-powered mowers
  • Price range: $150 to $400*

Gas-Powered Push-Mower: Cord-Free but Noisy

  • Good for small to medium-sized yards (those under 3/4 of an acre)
  • Convenient — you are not tied to a cord and don’t need to charge the mower like with electric-powered push-mowers
  • Gives off gas fumes when filling the tank and exhaust during use
  • Noisier engine than an electric-powered push-mower
  • Price range: $130 to $330*

Riding Mower: Easy on You, Hard on Your Wallet

  • Good for large-sized yards (those over 3/4 of an acre)
  • Good for small to medium-sized yards (those under 3/4 of an acre) if you have physical limitations that would make riding preferable to using a push mower
  • Gives off gas fumes when filling the tank and exhaust when in use
  • Price range: $900 and above*
