What factors should you focus on when choosing a mower?

Riding mower technology is constantly changing, if you do not keep up with the newest and best it can leave you feeling confused and lost. We have taken the time to go over the main differences between zero turn lawn mowers and riding lawn tractors. This breakdown will start you on the right track to knowing just what type of lawn mower is right for you! 

Zero Turn Mowers or Ztrack Lawn Mowers: Precision and Performance

The zero-turn radius lawn mower, or Ztrak lawn mower, is designed for those tight corners that you otherwise might not be able to get into with your riding lawn mower. It is also ideal for speed; with a faster mowing speed, you can mow larger areas and get the job done in a shorter amount of time. The Ztrak lawn mower is best suited for flat land. 

Riding Lawn Tractor: Power and Versatility

The riding lawn tractor is designed for versatility. Not only is your tractor designed for mowing operations, but it is also designed for total lawn care. There are numerous tow behind implements such as lawn rollers, sweepers, sprayers, carts, etc. It is also ideal for blowing snow with the ability to attach a snowblower to the front of the tractor! A lawn tractor is the ideal solution if you are planning to cut hilly terrain.  


Now let’s talk finances. Before you start browsing, decide on a budget that best fits your operation. It’s important to take a couple of things into consideration before you come to a number. How long and how often do you plan on using your mower? If this piece of equipment is going to become a part of your team, then you might want to treat it as an investment. Plan on getting increased productivity, boosted efficiency, and decreased downtime as a return.

It seems like you have some decisions to make, but you’re certainly not alone. If you have any questions about these mowers or are having a hard time choosing the right one for your operation, call our team and we’ll be happy to help guide you to success!
