See below for our most frequently asked questions about Ride On Mowers.
How do I choose a Ride On Mower?
Ask yourself what is the size of the mowing area? Often this information will help us to determine the cutting deck and engine size required before recommending a ride-on mower.
Other questions to ask yourself include; how long does it take to mow your lawns? What is the terrain like that you are mowing, is it primarily flat or do you have undulating ground or slops? Do you want to catch, side discharge, or mulch the grass? The terrain and type of lawn, will determine if you need a zero turn, a side discharge, or catcher lawn tractor. There are rideon options with cutting widths from 30” for small lawns, up to large 72” decks for life style blocks and commercial use.
