The aim of study was to analyse and compare three different principles of mowers on homestead. The mowers have different principle of working, type of detachment, mass and power take-off speed. We have tested finger blade, rotary disc and rotary drum mower. We have compared fuel consumption and measured time of mowing and preparing mowers for usage. Two fields were separated in three parts with equal area. With each mower we have mowed one part of both fields. As expected, rotary mowers had higher consumption of fuel. Meanwhile the lowest consumption of fuel had finger blade mower. Considering weight of mower, fuel consumption could be explained. On the other hand, finger blade mower needed more time for attachment and mowing, compared to any of rotary mowers.
