Things to Consider when Choosing a Ride-On Mower
Looking to purchase a used riding lawn mower to speed up the process? There are a few things to consider before you make your choice:
Manual vs hydrostatic transmission
A manual system will be most familiar to regular car drivers, but hydrostatic transmission is often good for manouvering around obstacles. The latter is more expensive, but also tends to have better speed control and often cruise control – ideal when tackling wider, open areas.
If you’re looking to tackle larger areas with speed, then the wider your riding mower is, the more ground you can cover in a shorter space of time. However, think about the width of any gates or storage facilities that you will need to use with your ride-on mower, as you don’t want to purchase something too big.
If you’re planning to pull additional trailers with your riding mower, then consider a more powerful engine. The same applies if you’re likely to be using it on steeper ground. Otherwise, for less demanding jobs and terrains, a standard engine will suffice.
