Ride On Mowers

Ride on mowers are versatile machines that allow users to cut small or large lawns with precision. They require less effort than push mowers, which helps people with limited mobility and makes it easier to mow large areas. New machines can be expensive, but used ride on mowers allow people on a budget find a device with the features they require. Two basic types of riding mowers are available, and you should review the features of each type to find one that best suits your needs.

Zero Turn Mowers

Zero turn mowers are high performance machines that allow users to mow quickly and efficiently. They turn when rooted to a spot and easily move around trees, flower beds, and other obstacles. The mowers work best on flat lawns because of their small tyres. Entry level models are not made for heavy work and are better suited for smaller lawns. They do not often come with attachments. Mid-grade models feature a stronger construction and offer a smoother ride and a powerful engine. Semi-pro and commercial models are built to haul loads, mow large expanses of land, till, sow seeds, and harvest.

Garden or Lawn Tractors

Lawn tractors are known for their versatility, because they often perform other jobs besides mowing. The size, design, and powerful engines allow them to haul a variety of heavy attachments. Other than mowing grass, they are able to sow seeds, harvest crops, and blow snow off fields or lawns. However, they lack manoeuvrability and are noisy because of their large size and powerful engines. Most garden tractors feature twin cylinder Overhead Valve engines that are powerful and compact. Opt for models with larger engines to mow slopes and small hills easier.


Attachments are additional tools that enhance the performance of your ride on mower. These include, bags for collecting grass, snow chains for gripping during harsh weather, and hitches for carrying attachments when not in use. Aerator tread attachments are spikes that fit on the mower's wheels to aerate the lawn and keep it healthy. Snow ploughs may be attached to the front of the mower for ploughing large areas of snow.

Ride on mowers are ideal for different types of yard work. They work well for any size yard, depending on which type you purchase. Secondhand ride on mowers allow consumers on a budget find the perfect machine for their needs at a lower price.
