History And Invention Of The Lawn Mower, is going to be today’s post here in Discover My Inventions, the lawn mower has added beauty and value to our lawns for many years the lawn mowers also comes in many different styles, and that’s one of the things about Discover my inventions is I take a great deal of interest in a lot of things, and that’s the reason why I created this blog which is about history and inventions.
A lawn mower (mower) is a machine utilizing one or more revolving blades to cut a grass surface to an even height. The height of the cut grass may be fixed by the design of the mower, but generally is adjustable by the operator, typically by a single master lever, or by a lever or nut and bolt on each of the machine’s wheels.
The blades may be powered by muscle, with wheels mechanically connected to the cutting blades so that when the mower is pushed forward, the blades spin, or the machine may have a battery-powered or plug-in electric motor. The most common power source for lawn mowers is a small (typically one cylinder) internal combustion engine.
Smaller mowers often lack any form of propulsion, requiring human power to move over a surface; walk-behind mowers are self-propelled, requiring a human only to walk behind and guide them. Larger lawn mowers are usually either self-propelled walk-behind types, or more often, are ride-on mowers, equipped so the operator can ride on the mower and control it. A robotic lawn mower (lawn-mowing bot, mowbot, etc.) is designed to operate either entirely on its own, or less commonly by an operator by remote control.
The first lawn mower was invented by Edwin Budding in 1830 in Thrupp, just outside Stroud, in Gloucestershire, England. Budding’s mower was designed primarily to cut the grass on sports grounds and extensive gardens, as a superior alternative to the scythe, and was granted a British patent on August 31, 1830.
An early cylinder (reel) mower, showing a fixed cutting blade in front of the rear roller and wheel-driven rotary blades, budding’s first machine was 19 inches (480 mm) wide with a frame made of wrought iron. The mower was pushed from behind. Cast-iron gear wheels transmitted power from the rear roller to the cutting cylinder, allowing the rear roller to drive the knives on the cutting cylinder; the ratio was 16:1.
Another roller placed between the cutting cylinder and the main or land roller could be raised or lowered to alter the height of cut. The grass clippings were hurled forward into a tray-like box. It was soon realized, however, that an extra handle was needed in front to help pull the machine along. Overall, these machines were remarkably similar to modern mowers.
So that’s it for now I’m Randy Johnson Thanks For Stopping By And Being A Great Part Of Discover My Inventions.
