According to power: human and animal power drive, engine drive, electric drive, solar drive.

According to the method: hob type, rotary knife type, side-mounted type, flail knife type.

According to requirements: flat type, half waist type, truncated top type.

1. Handheld rotary lawn mower

Hand-held rotary lawn mowers are generally equipped with a knifeless cutting disc, and use high-strength nylon rope as the forage cutting part. It has a flexible structure and is not afraid of encountering rigid obstacles. It is safe to use and easy to replace.

2. Hanging type (side hanging lawn mower, hanging lawn mower)

In terms of the sample of the hanging mower, one is hanging on the side and the other is on the back. In comparison, the side-mounted type is lighter, more durable, and more efficient. The structure is simple, light, maneuverable and flexible. There are three types of front suspension, side suspension and rear suspension. Later suspension mowers are the most widely used.

3. Reciprocating lawn mower

The reciprocating lawn mower cuts the forages by relying on the relative shearing movement of the movable knife and the fixed knife on the cutter. Its characteristic is that the cutting stubble is neat, and the power required per unit cutting width is small; but it has poor adaptability to different growth states of forage and is easy to block. It is suitable for flat natural grassland and artificial grassland with general yield. Because the cutter vibrates greatly during operation, the cutting speed is slow.

4. Rotary type (drum lawn mower, rotary lawn mower)

For the rotary lawn mower, the blade on the high-speed rotating cutter head impacts the cutting speed of the forage (the circumferential speed of the root of the blade edge) as high as 60-90 m/s. The work is stable, and the work advance speed can reach 15 km/h or more. When mowing the grass, open the middle-speed throttle and move forward at a constant speed, which can save fuel consumption. When the resistance is too large or encounter obstacles, the blade immediately swings back to avoid damage.

5. Lawn weeder

Lawn mowers are also called lawn mowers. The height of the stubble after cutting can be determined according to the requirements of the lawn. The height cut when cutting the grass is one-third of the original height of the grass. Due to the special structure of the lawn mower, it can only be cut horizontally along the slope when cutting the grass. It cannot be trimmed up and down the slope. In special places, such as turning on slopes, be especially careful, beware of caves, trenches, mounds, and other obstacles in the grass.

6. Cart type lawn mower

The cart-type lawn mower is a hand-push and self-propelled lawn mower that is convenient, light, and flexible. It can be used regardless of the size of the fields such as plains, hills, terraces, triangles, and mud fields. It is used to harvest wheat, rice, beans, Shrubs, reeds, barley, alfalfa, fish grass and other crops. The operation is simple and the work efficiency is high. It can cut one mu per hour and can also be carried by one person.
