The **Calories Burned Mowing Grass **calculator estimates the calories burned cutting grass based on the method used (walking or riding mower), weight of person and the duration of time mowing grass.

**INSTRUCTIONS**: Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**M**) Method (Push Mower or Riding Mower) - (
**W**) Weight of Person - (
**T**) Time Spent Mowing Grass

**Calories Burned Mowing Grass (kCal):** The calculator returns the approximate calories (kcal) burned during mowing grass.

According to a report from Valdosta University, the following calories per hour are associated with mowing (cutting) grass. These are approximate numbers based on the person's weight, and there are numerous other factors that can change the total calories burned.
