A Simple Guide to Choosing a LawnMaster Lawnmower.

Size Of Your Lawn & Terrain? 

Small to Medium LawnsA small to medium-sized lawn can be easily managed with a simple, small engine LawnMaster push mower or a 16" Inch (400mm) LawnMaster Lithium mower. Both options are light, portable, easy to use, and simple mowers that can maintain your lawns. Smaller mowers are also perfect for lawns with obstacles like trees and garden beds, being a lighter mower with more maneuverability. 

Large lawnsLarger areas demand more power. LawnMaster has a range of high-quality mowers with high-performance engines dedicated to medium to large-sized lawns. Other features to consider when buying a lawnmower include Self-Propelled Mowers which require less physical effort, making it easier to push around larger lawns with difficult terrains.  Also, consider having a wider cutting width to get bigger jobs, done much quicker.

Standard LawnMaster Mowers sizes include 16" Inch (400mm), 18" Inch (420mm), 19" Inch (480mm) or 20" Inch Mowers (508mm). 


For some, easy convenience and less maintenance are key to purchasing a product. 

The LawnMaster Lithium Mowers are perfect for individuals that want a simple and fast solution to maintain their lawn. With little to no maintenance required, simply put the battery on charge before or after mowing for an easy mowing operation every time. The best thing about the lithium-ion range is that you can move the battery between a range of handheld chore products as well. Alternatively for those wanting a robust petrol lawnmower, it does require regular but easy maintenance and servicing  (including spark plug and oil changes). LawnMaster petrol mowers are extremely reliable and there are a number of great service agents around New Zealand that are able to help with servicing if required. 

The ability to Mulch or Catch is an important feature to consider. Most LawnMaster Alloy Mowers include Mulch Plugs with mowers. From an environmental aspect, mulching is a good way to give back to the lawn as grass clippings are a natural fertilizer to help maintain a  greener and more lush lawn. The Mulch Plug is easy to plugin and is used without the catcher. But for those wanting to catch and clear grass clippings, a mower with a big catcher allows for more grass clippings and less frequent trips to empty the catcher, especially when having to maintain larger lawns.

Starting mechanisms are also important to consider. Most LawnMaster mowers have easy pull start systems. Most LawnMaster Alloy and some Steel mowers have Zone Start, which is an easy pull start system located on the handle of the mower. All LawnMaster Lithium Mowers have an easy push-button start. 


LawnMaster has a great range of lawnmowers fit for any budget. If you require a reliable mower within a tight budget, consider the LawnMaster Steel Body range as there are a number of durable mowers with high-performance engines that will last a long time when serviced and maintained well. LawnMaster Alloy range is also available for those with a slightly bigger budget. The LawnMaster Alloy range has high-performance engines backed with a Primary Grade Alloy chassis that is extremely strong and durable. Primary Grade Alloy extends the life of the mower and reduces the likelihood of damage through cracking, breaking, or rusting of the chassis lasting longer in wet New Zealand conditions.

LawnMaster Chassis Types

Primary Grade Alloy Chassis

All LawnMaster Alloy Mowers are made with Primary Grade Alloy which is an extremely strong and durable compound that is lightweight.

Durable Steel Chasis

Cutting Height Adjustment

Mow Zone

All LawnMaster Alloy Mowers have what we call Mow Zone. This enables the mower to cut beyond the wheel lines, achieving a superior finish along fences, trees, and paths.

Bolted Axle Attachments 

LawnMaster Alloy Mowers have Bolted Axles making the axles securely fastened to the chassis to handle all mowing conditions. Having Bolted Axles also increases the overall life span of the mower in comparison to mowers with axles fastened by clips.
