Section of the MTD umbrella, Remington sells mowers which range from classic manual styles to electric, cordless versions. As of January 2014, the organization’s lineup of mowers includes RM212A the Remington RM202A and RM212B. While these yard tools offer mowing capabilities and electricity, they vary in their electricity sources and attributes, not to mention their price tags.
A Little Push
In the entry level, the Remington RM202A 2-in-1 Electric Push Mower runs on a engine. This mower is based on a power cord and includes a 19-inch cutting deck, 7-inch brakes and single-lever, six-position height adjustment, reaching heights between 1.25 and 3.5 inches. It sparks grass debris via a mulching side discharge.
Sticking with all the Cord
Like the Remington RM202A, the RM212A 3-in-1 Electric Push Mower requires a cord for power. It retains the specs in areas including deck height, deck size, height adjustment, engine and mulching capabilities. But this midrange version adds a rear bag. It upgrades the brakes to eight inches, so providing just a lot of lift, useful for slightly bumpier yards to the mower.
On peak of the pile, Remington Electric Battery Push Mower distinguishes itself from the RM202A and the RM212A using its battery, making for cordless operation. Besides this factor, the specs of the RM212B remain equal to its cousin, including a 19-inch cutting deck, height adjuster, rear mulching tote and raised wheels.
A Personal Decision
Your selection of mower boils right down to the requirements of your yard, your preferences and your budget. These cordless and corded electric mowers cater to little – or medium-sized lawns, ideally under 1/3 of an acre in size. As of January 2014, the Remington RM202A provides the choice, at a price of $169. The RM212A mulching tote and tires come at little cost, as this version retails for $199. The RM212B’s operation , however, will make the biggest dent in your checkbook. Each weapon comprises a limited warranty when purchased new.
