mower engine speed Most modern mowers are of the rotary type. Rotary mower engines are all made to spin at 3,600 revs per minute when not under load. During cutting, the rpm drops to between 2800 and 3300. There is a simple wire-based device for measuring rpm on a running mower, which all mower specialists would own.
The other speed linked with your question could be that concerning the velocity of the blade tip as it revolves. As the centre of the blade is spinning at 3600 rpm, an 18 inch blade tip will travel through the air at one speed a 21 inch at a faster speed and so on. Rotary mower blade bars are made up to a max of 24 inches.
