Things to consider when buying a new ride-on mower

Do you have a big lawn to mow? Here are a few things to keep in mind before you buy a ride-on mower.

Choosing the right ride-on mower for the job mainly depends on the type of grass you will cut and what the garden looks like. With our Combi cutting decks you have two cutting techniques to choose from. Rear ejection or BioClip®. Here are a few things that distinguish them from each other.

Rear ejection for taller grass

If you are planning to cut taller, wilder grass, or coarser types of grass, it’s better to go for a ride-on mower with rear ejection cutting deck that can manage large amounts of grass.

BioClip® for finer lawns

Do you have a well-maintained lawn that is mowed a lot? Then BioClip® is the most suitable for your purposes. The finely cut clippings return to the lawn as fertilizer. All of our ride-on mower models have this option.

All-Wheel Drive

If your lawn can be slippery or is steep in places, or if you intend to use the ride-on mower all year round, AWD (All-Wheel Drive) is a great investment. It gives you better traction when you need it.

Professional or homeowner

If you are looking for a ride-on mower for professional use all year round, with larger areas to maintain, it is best to go with our advanced ride-on mowers, such as the R 420TsX AWD, equipped with things like headlights, hour metre with service minder and a premium seat.

If you are a homeowner you are probably better off with one of the smaller residential ride-on mowers for convenient storage.

Easy to drive and manoeuvre

All our ride-o mowers have front-mounted cutting decks, so that you have better control over your working area. This type of cutting deck also allows you to reach under bushes and get closer to fences and walls. We have also a unique articulation of the steering which our ride-on mowers extremely easy to handle. You work more efficiently, and get great results faster, with less effort. In addition, a wide range of ride-on mowers accessories helps you complete other garden tasks all year round. With or without All-Wheel Drive – the decision is yours.

Things to keep in mind when buying a Husqvarna Ride-On Mower

Look for all accessories like a sweeper to collect grass, leaves and debris. Moss rake, scarifier, spreader and trailer for lawn preparation and a snow blade, a snow blower or a front-mounted brush to clear entrances and paths year around.
