The advantages of cordless lawn mowers are endless: freedom from cords, no need for petrol or oil, ease of manoeuvrability and so on. That said, many families are worried that upgrading to a cordless mower may not be worth the money. If that's your concern, think again. Cordless lawn mowers are beneficial to every lawn owner, but they're even more useful for families with kids. Here are four reasons why a cordless lawn mower is a must when you have children. 

1. No cords for kids to trip over

A cordless lawnmower makes life easier for everyone in the household, especially when it comes to safety and convenience. Children are still learning to navigate the world, so a stray mower extension cord can present a serious trip hazard. On top of this, kids can even get themselves tangled in cords, running the risk of strangulation. As such, a cordless lawn mower is much safer. You'll be able to reach every inch of your lawn without worrying about stretching out cables where your child could fall over them. 

2. Affordable on a family budget

Cordless lawn mowers are a great investment for the whole family. Cordless lawn mowers are surprisingly cheap these days, and since you don't have to top them up with petrol, you won't find yourself with constant ongoing upkeep costs. Plus, when you have a cordless lawn mower, mowing becomes a lot more convenient—so convenient you won't mind doing it yourself, saving on the cost of a landscaping service.

3. No toxic fumes like petrol-operated mowers

For the sake of your health and the safety of your children, choose a cordless lawn mower over a petrol-powered one. Petrol emits toxic fumes that can be harmful to your children's respiratory systems, especially if they already have allergies, asthma or other sensitivities. That said, even a healthy child has more fragile lungs than an adult. A cordless lawn mower will run on electricity, keeping your children safe and even helping the environment while you're at it. 

4. Easy to maintain when you're strapped for time

Having kids means having less time for everything else, which means finding time to maintain a lawnmower can be difficult. These mowers are very easy to maintain and don't often need extra attention to keep them working. When you have a cordless lawn mower, all you need to do is put in the battery and set it to cut.
