Ride on Mowers

When purchasing a ride-on mower a number of factors must be taken into account, including:

  • How large an area will you be mowing?
    Larger mowers are more time-effective on large properties, smaller ride-ons can be pushed beyond their designed duty cycle if asked to mow a too large area.


  • Is it lawn or a grassy paddock?
    Some ride-ons are more suited to a lawn environment - their deck is not designed for the uneven terrain of a typical paddock.


  • What sort of grass? Some of the domestic grasses grow to be extremely lush and thick even without much watering. A high powered motor is required to cut them.


  • Do you need to catch the grass clippings? 
    Usually only a question applicable to lawns rather than paddocks. For some kinds of grass the clippings need to be removed to reduce the build-up of thatch and a catcher is essential. For other grasses the options are to leave the clippings where they are thrown, or to use a mulching blade and adaptor to finely chop the clippings and drop them back on to the grass.


  • How wide are the gateways between areas to be mown?
    No point in having a 107cm (42") wide deck if you have 90cm gates between the areas to be mown.


  • Will you be mowing around and in and out of trees?
    If you will need repeatedly to go in between trees and reverse out again a hydro transmission (i.e. an automatic) will be a lot easier to use. If most of your mowing will be up and down open spaces, then either a manual or hydro transmission will serve.


  • Does the area to be mown and the expected frequency of mowing warrant a ride-on with a commercial specification?
    A pressed steel deck will meet most domestic and small landholder needs, but for commercial use a heavier gauge deck or a fabricated deck will give longer life and lower maintenance and repair.
