Riding Lawnmower Round-Up

There are more choices than ever when it comes to riding mowers: rear engine, front engine, zero turn, even electric. While some features are unique and others shared across different brands, the industry as a whole is on a mission to make riding mowers as efficient and painless to operate as possible. Here are some interesting features you'll want to consider.

There's a lot to consider when choosing a riding lawn mower, like how much horsepower is needed or what type of cutting deck to select. Efficiency is important. John Deere's new Accel Deep mower deck saves time by processing more grass at faster speeds. The flat-top design enables a clean flow of material throughout the deck and discharge area so cut material doesn't interfere with the cutting of incoming grass. Image courtesy of John Deere
