Equip a lawnmower with a magnetic sweeper and pick up metal debris while you work.

Why equip a lawnmower with a magnet?

We’re not talking about putting a magnetic sweeper on your personal lawnmower here, we’re talking about more public and commercial environments, schools, sports fields, parks, highway road sides, etc.  Like most public places debris gets there somehow.  Metal debris particularly can be a human hazard, and a vehicle hazard, and it can really be a problem if a lawnmower runs over that debris and the mower flings it out at high speed while mowing.  It can also be a problem for the lawnmower itself because hitting metal with lawnmower blades is hard on the mower and the blades, and the debris can also simply cause flat tires on the mower.

Hanging Lawnmower Magnets

Hanging magnets make the most sense for lawnmowers because its economical and doesn’t interfere with lawnmower operation, so you can pick up debris while your mowing.

There is one general type of LAWNMOWER Magnet available that makes the most sense, a hanging magnet.  A hanging magnet makes the most sense for lawnmowers because its economical and doesn’t interfere with lawnmower operation, so you can pick up debris while your mowing.

Tow behind magnets don’t make sense for obvious reasons that would make the lawnmower cumbersome to manoeuvre.  And while front mounted units like the Longhorn are great, they have larger footprints and profiles that similarly have the same negative effect on lawnmower manoeuverability in most circumstances.

Quick Tip #1

What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of Riding Lawnmower magnets?

The Wrasse comes with 2 hanging chains with quick clips on each of the chains for easy mounting. It's best that you angle both of these chains either inwards or outward inline with the magnet to prevent excessive swaying. But if you really want to secure it, purchase an additional set of hanging chains. Ideally, the hanging magnet would be out front ahead of the mower blades. However, you can choose the most convenient and easily accessible place to mount the magnet.

Top Questions to Ask Before Buying a Lawnmower Magnet​

1. Where to best mount the magnet to the lawnmower?

If you can hang the magnet in front of the mower and the wheels this is the best solution because it then has the opportunity to pick up debris before mower blades or the mower wheels run over it. But sometimes a mid mount location just seems best, use your best judgement.

2. How much do you want to spend on a magnet?

Hanging magnets are the most cost effective because a hanging magnet is essentially just a big magnet bar without most of the other mechanism’s that accompany either a tow behind magnet or a front mount magnet.

3. Are you able to leave the magnet mounted?

If you can mount a magnet permanently on your Lawnmower, it’s going to work for you all the time while you’re driving around mowing and it saves you the time of temporarily mounting and demounting it.  Therefore if you can leave a magnet mounted, a permanently mounted solution is usually better. 

4. How easy is the magnet to clean off?

A magnet may work really well at picking up debris, but how easy is it to clean off? Think through how you would clean the magnet off step by step.  Make sure it makes sense to you and your situation.  Pay attention to the details of how this will work from start to finish, right up to the point of getting the debris in the garbage or scrap bin.  If the hanging magnet is suspended underneath equipment then opt for a Quick Clean off Sleeve so that you don’t have to crawl under the lawnmower to clean the magnet off.

5. How good is the magnet at hanging on to the debris that it picks up?

You are not going to be cleaning your magnet off constantly, so it’s important that when your magnet does pick up a nail or screw that the magnet secures the debris so that it won’t fall off if the magnet is suddenly shaken because of a bump or if the bottom of the magnet hits the grass or ground and the debris is wiped backward on the magnet. This is a big issue for on grass use.  The magnet is usually hung so that the grass touches the bottom of the magnet a little bit.  The grass can wipe debris off the magnet if the magnet doesn’t have “Wrap Around” The last thing you want is for the debris to fall off again.  Make sure your magnet has some feature like our “Wrap Around Feature”, it not only makes sure debris doesn’t get wiped off the bottom of the magnet, it makes the debris holding capacity higher and you’ll find in practice that most of your debris ends up on the side of your magnet not the bottom of it.  And that’s a good indication to you why we have this feature.

6. How far off the ground will the magnet be positioned?

We want to ensure our products meet your expectations therefore make sure you take a look at our “maximum lifting height” specification. We bench test all of our magnetic sweepers to determine their maximum lifting height using a two and a half inch nail standard nail.  Everyone knows what a two and a half inch nail looks like which is why we use this standard measure of magnet strength and it will give you a good idea of magnet performance. 

Quick Tip #2

What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of  riding lawnmower magnets?

Hanging magnets are by far the biggest bang for your dollar, you don’t need a very wide one for a LAWNMOWER, but get the strongest one, the 4.5x4.5, or the 3x3, so you can hang it a bit higher, you’ll be shocked by what they pick up, I know I was the first time I saw one mounted and used. I thought it would seem crazy having a magnet mounted under the LAWNMOWER, that it would rattle or knock around but it wasn’t, it worked great.
