Zero-turn mowers are a safer and faster way to get your residential or commercial property looking as clean as possible. ZT models are larger than your standard walk-behind mower, but the design of the zero-turn is ideal for landowners, farmers, ranchers, and professional landscape contractors who desire efficiency and comfort.
What makes a zero-turn different than a tractor or a traditional mower?
These mowers get their name because they’re designed to spin 180 degrees, making a clean cut at the end of each mowing row so operators reduce the number of passes required to mow their lawn. The design makes it so you never have to cut the same patch twice, you don’t miss areas because of your turning technique, and you’ll have less trimming to do at the end of the job. Zero-turn mowers offer a number of operator benefits including:
-cut lawn efficiently with 180 degree turns
-high quality cutting at faster speeds (most zero-turns can run 5-8mph, some up to 13)
-increased maneuverability cuts mowing time in half
Many zero-turn models share similarities between manufacturers, like engine specifications and cut widths/heights, so it’s important to consider what makes your ZT mower the right, unique selection for your mowing needs.
When purchasing your new zero-turn mower, make sure to consider the following:
-quality of cut
A ZT mower can be a cost and time-effective investment for you, your home, and company. No matter which ZT manufacturer or model you choose, you can be assured you’ll have a freshly cut, clean-looking lawn in less time with less need to trim after the mowing is completed.
