Riding Lawn Mowers
Riding lawn mowers are ideal for lawns bigger than a half-acre. Before buying a riding lawn mower, keep in mind that they are more expensive (in regards to both purchase price and usage costs), noisier, more pollutant and more difficult to maintain than all lawn mower alternatives. Before purchasing a riding lawn mower, take a good look at your yard (property) and consider obstacles you will have to go around or over, including stumps, trees and others. When shopping for a riding lawn mower consider its deck size (or blade size); the placement of the engine (rear or front mounted); the turning radius (or maneuverability); the speed controls which include options like foot pedals, hand lever clutches or hydro-static drive systems without a clutch; the bagging mode and the price.
