KOHLER, Wisc., May 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- You know the old saying: having the right tool for the job can make things a whole lot easier. The same rule applies to your lawn. The right mower can make a huge difference when it comes to the quality of cut and the time you spend maintaining your yard this summer. If your mower has seen better days and it's time for an upgrade, now's the time to start researching your lawn mower options.
"Walk-behind lawn mowers have come a long way in recent years," said Ed Del Grande, a master contractor and nationally syndicated home improvement expert. "There's a ton of new technology that makes it faster, easier and more cost-efficient to maintain your lawn. If you're in the market for a new mower, the first thing you need to look at is the engine."
Engine manufacturers are continually introducing new technologies that take the time and stress out of lawn maintenance. One example is the new XTX Series™ from Kohler Engines. XTX Series engines never require an oil change over their lifetime. Simply check the oil level before each use and you're good to go. Older engines typically require an oil change each cutting season, so the XTX Series allows you to finally say "goodbye" to those time consuming, costly oil changes – forever.
In addition to researching the latest engine technologies, there are a number of other features that are important to look for when considering lawn mower engines. Del Grande recommends the following:
- First and foremost, you want easy, hassle-free starting every time you mow, so look for an engine that doesn't require priming to start and comes with easy-pull starting.
- Look for a large, angled fuel neck that makes it easy to pour fuel into the engine and reduces spills.
- Select a commercial-quality engine that provides consistent power to the mower deck. This will help you power through long, wet or clumpy grass for the perfect cut every time.
"The engine is the power plant that drives everything on the mower," Del Grande said. "The engine you choose makes a huge difference when it comes to the time you spend maintaining your lawn versus the time you spend enjoying your lawn."
