Large gardens and lawns can be hard to maintain without the right equipment. A ride-on lawn mower can cover greater distances more efficiently than a push lawn mower and will take the manual work out of cutting the grass. They're recommended for lawns larger than a tennis court and are simple to operate.
You'll find a few ride-on mowers powered by electricity, however, the majority will have gasoline or diesel engines similar to those found in cars. Choose from a range of used and new styles manufactured by leading brands including John Deere, Westwood, Husqvarna, Countax, Kubota, Jacobsen and Hayter.
Garden tractors and lawn tractors
Garden tractors have the most powerful engines and are designed to be durable. You'll find that the cutting blades on garden tractors are located in the centre of the machine and have the widest cutting widths. Lawn tractors are a little smaller than garden tractors which means they have a smaller turning radius.
If you have hilly or uneven terrain in your garden you may want to opt for a mower that has gauge wheels which will help ensure the grass is cut evenly. Other accessories and attachments may come as standard or be compatible with your garden or lawn tractor. These include a range of ploughs that can help you break up the soil, plant seeds and fertilise the land. Leaf composters and towing apparatus is also available.
IMowersd is like a mower that's flexible and allows you to cut around trees, shrubs and flower beds. This type of lawnmower is able to get into hard to reach spots and can eliminate the need for trimming.
While other types of ride-on lawn mowers use front-wheel steering, zero-turn mowers use their rear wheels to pivot. The design of a zero-turn lawnmower also differs as it's operated by two levers instead of a steering wheel.
