Plus: Cambridge Small Motors Open House

We want to make your next lawnmower your favourite one by far. Cambridge Small Motors fixes hundreds of lawnmowers every year – in summer 2017 we had a 3-week wait list and so we started renting lawnmowers out to ensure our customers had a great-looking lawn all summer long no matter what! We’ve heard every lawnmower complaint. Whether you purchase new or used we’ve put together our key lawnmower shopping tips to help keep your landscaping frustration to an absolute minimum!

Try before you buy.

Shopping online is really fun, convenient, and sometimes cheaper, which is great, until your brand new lawnmower arrives and it’s heavier than you expected, or you didn’t quite understand the measurements. If you want the best lawnmower for you, you’ve got to go into a store and at least see if you can push it in and out of the shed, and maybe try to tilt it to clean. You also want know whether you like the grip on the handle and if it’s going to fit in your shed at all.

Must be adjustable!

The handle of your lawnmower must be adjustable for height and tilt. Even if you’re the only one in the household who is ever going to use it, posture will change over the years and you’ll wish you could tilt or lower the handle. Your I hate my lawnmowerlawnmower could last for decades if you treat it right, so invest in something that will adjust with you over the years.

Get a self-propel lawnmower:

Hey, do you want to love your lawn a whole lot more? Invest in a lawnmower designed to reduce the dread of maintenance drastically. Self-propel mowers don’t take up any more room than a push mower, but they travel uphill with little effort on your part. Still expect a decent workout, but if you’ve got even one steep hill on your property, or your lawn isn’t perfectly flat, a self-propel lawnmower can reduce a lot of stress. Choose what’s right for your storage space, budget, and physical ability, but this is a splurge worth making.

Can we fix it?

If you’re looking at an innovative design or a lawnmower advertised as being especially eco-friendly, contact Cambridge Small Motors and make sure we are equipped to fix it. Good news is we probably can, but ensuring so adds to the longevity of your purchase and innovative investment. With all of the use your lawnmower gets, even top models need some love every few years.
