How To Choose The Right Ride On Mower
When it comes to picking a Mower that needs to cover vast amount of land, size really does matter. For farming and agricultural purposes with large areas of lush green grass to keep under control, a Ride On Mower is a must. There’s a few different options when it comes to picking the right mower for the task. So which Ride On Mower is right for your property?
A Compact Ride On Mower is perfect when you’re looking at tackling areas up to and around half an acre. Ideally you want a Mower with a smaller cutting width and something that is thin enough to easily traverse things like garden gates, fence posts, pathways and narrow gateways. A mower with a cutting width of around 66cm to 77cm would be ideal for this.
When you’re looking and covering areas of closer to 2 acres or so, a Lawn Tractor will get the job done quickly and efficiently. While covering that much space it’s important to be comfortable and have a smooth ride, with easily accessible controls as you will be spending a bit of time on the Mower. The Viking MT5097 is a perfect example of this and is a popular choice with our customers. It features a 95cm cutting width with a 2 blade system, slicing through grass and undergrowth with ease and neatly collecting it in the grass catcher box.
Anything over 2 acres and it’s time to bring out the big guns. This is where you’d look at getting a Zero Turn Ride On Mower as these feature a 360° turning circle, allowing you to cover the whole area in one sitting. A great example of these is the Amazone PH125 which is an extremely reliable and professional machine. It offers maximum performance and a compact design making it easier to use and operate.
