There are two distinct benefits of a rider when compared to a garden tractor, which may make them the best sit on lawn mower for you and your garden. These are;
1. Front mounted decking deck: This type of sit on mower has the cutting deck mounted to the front of the machine. This allows the operator to clearly see where they are cutting, unlike when using a garden tractor where the cutting blades are mounted in the middle of the lawn mower, often underneath the operators feet. Because the cutting deck is at the front of the machine you can easily reach and trim into corners and edges of the lawn and under bushes with ease.
2. Superior manoeuvrability: Articulated steering gives first class manoeuvrability and facilitates driving around obstacles such as trees, bushes and flower beds. It allows for a much tighter turning circle, resulting in a much reduced area of uncut grass.
