Mowers For Sale Stephenville TX1. The Size of Your Lawn.

Yeah, this matters while selecting your mower. Check the cutting width of your mower. Usually, mowers with more powerful engines and a wider cutting patch can help you mow a large landscape in lesser time. Do take into account the type of landscape – whether it is flat, uneven or sloppy. If the area of your yard is something less than 1/2 acre, a push lawn mower can be a better alternative.

2. The Transmission Technology.

Mowers come in three types of transmission systems – manual transmission, automatic transmission as well as hydrostatic transmission. If you want a ride-on mower with manual transmission, it will let you drive the machine using a set of different speed ranges. A riding mower with an automatic transmission lets you change speed using the gas pedal.

Alternatively, a mower with a hydrostatic transmission system in-place works similar to an automatic one but the only difference is it makes use of fluids to transfer power from the engine to the wheels instead of belts; they offer smoother drive and need less maintenance. Riding mowers with hydraulic transmission will last longer than other two types of riding mowers, making them best value for money.

3. The Type of Grass.

If you choose mowers that can side-discharge the clippings of grass back on the lawn as you drive further, it can be of great use when the grass in your yard is high or coarse. You can bind all clippings together and get rid of them easily when you are done with your mowing session. At Hendershot of Stephenville TX, you will also find bagger-capable mowers – the mowers that collect cut grass in a separate bag preventing the spread of weed seed. These mowers can also be used for cleaning the yard of leaves. When the bag is full, you need to empty it and you can resume your mowing session.

Some mowers work on the concept of grass-mulching. They mulch clippings of the grass providing the landscape some nutrition source. If you find time to regularly mow your yard or garden, certainly the grass won’t grow tall. In such case, mowers with a mulching capability make a right choice.

4. Type of Lawn Mower

At equipment dealerships, you’ll find a variety of lawn mowers tailored to different needs. For sprawling lawns, Riding Lawn Mowers or Lawn Tractors are ideal. Smaller yards can benefit from the ease and maneuverability of Walk-Behind Mowers. If speed and agility are paramount, consider Zero-Turn Mowers. Stand-On Mowers provide a compact, commercial-grade solution for large-scale mowing. Always make sure to purchase from an authorized dealer to ensure product quality and after-sales service.
