Entry-level zero turn mowers devour sprawling expanses of turf without breaking the bank.
How Big is Your Yard?
More importantly, they maneuver around obstacles - like trees, shrubs and flower beds - much easier than a lawn or garden tractor.
There are two important considerations when shopping for an entry-level zero turn mower:
This will determine how large of a cutting deck you'll need. Deck size refers to the width of the cut. The wider the cutting deck, the faster you will be able to mow your lawn.
Up to 1 Acre = 34-42” Deck
1-2 Acres = 42-50” Deck
2+ Acres = Not Recommended
Most entry-level zero turn mowers feature smaller, two-blade cutting systems. Yes, they can cut larger properties. However, we recommend upgrading to a mid-grade model
instead of investing your entire weekend mowing.
Distance Between Objects
Sometimes bigger isn't always better. The biggest challenge for a zero turn mower is fitting through narrow spaces.
If you have a forest of closely knit trees or small gates, we recommend measuring the distance between the tightest objects to ensure your zero turn will actually fit.
