Default Mowers that 'Pivot' in the middle?

Well, I've finally bought a house with a little yard and I'm shopping
for a basic electric lawn mower. However, I've realized none of them
seem to have the handle that is mounted in the middle of the mower that
'pivots' any more, i.e. you can't push the mower in one direction, flip
the handle over and mow back in the other direction. They all seem to
have a the handle mounted at the "back" of the mower so you have to
turn the mower around to travel back in the same direction from which
you've come.

Is this some new design requirement? Seems annoying to me.

Cheers,

I have a few bent beams in the yard where forklift or something has caught them out on site. If i was to cut them down from 8m to 6m, 5m, 4m or 3m (away from bend), will this have any bearing on its' strength and would it get pulled by Health and Safety. Obviously i will cut it past post in beam, the same length as good end.
Also if we drilled out the pin/bolt holes will this be acceptable? Otherwise a waste of a good, expensive beam.

I doubt if they would still design it that way. Most modern mowers have some features and attachments mounted on the handle arms, flipping them over or even turning them around might mean messing things up.
