Zero-turn mowers for sale: what to look for

If you’re going to invest in a new zero-turn mower, why settle for the same old same old? Here are five things to keep in mind while you search for a new zero-turn mower for your home or professional fleet.

 

Along with robotic lawn mowers, zero-turn mowers are one of the most rapidly growing segments of the mower industry. These mowers offer an excellent blend of power and extreme maneuverability. You can find great zero-turn mowers for hills, open fields, small commercial properties and everything in between.

Plus, they’re a lot of fun to operate!

If you’re in the market to buy, you’ll probably scour a lot of zero-turn mower reviews to learn more about the best zero-turn mowers for sale for homeowners, professionals and everybody in between. You might do an internet search for “zero-turn mower brands” or "zero-turn mowers for sale" and browse some different prices and comparisons. And you can always check out the selection at your local dealer.

At Husqvarna, we want to equip you with the relevant information you need to make an informed purchasing decision. From our commercial zero-turn mowers to our standard consumer models, we believe we’re one of the best lawn mower brands in the industry today.

Here are five things to keep in mind while you search for new zero-turn mowers for sale for your home or professional fleet:

1.    Comfort

Even though you’ll be sitting most of the time, cutting the grass with a zero-turn mower can be strenuous work. Without the right seat on your mower, all that turning and jostling will be hard on your back.

But there’s no reason to grin and bear it! Make the mower’s comfort a top priority, giving yourself time for a “test sit” on whatever zero-turn mower you’re thinking about purchasing. Choose one that has a comfortable, premium-class seat, as well as ergonomic steering and controls. After all, there’s no reason to settle for a whole season of aches and pains if you don’t have to.

2.    Deck size


When choosing a new zero-turn mower, should you go with a wide cutting deck or a narrower one?


That depends on where you’ll be mowing. For example, a wide cutting deck will reduce your mowing time in open spaces, but you’ll have a tougher time maneuvering in tight areas with obstacles like trees or shrubs. Plus, getting through a fence gate with a behemoth mower can prove difficult. On the flip side, a deck that’s too small could add needless hours to your workload. Select a deck size based on the yard or type of properties you’ll be mowing most frequently. And, if possible, test a few different sizes to see what works best for you.

3.    Deck design

Of course, the cutting deck’s width isn’t the only factor affecting the amount of time you’ll spend on your zero-turn mower. The design of the deck itself is important, too. Deep decks engineered specifically for air induction mowing, such as Husqvarna’s own ClearCut® deck, disperse high volumes of grass more evenly and resist clogging more effectively.

4.    Durability

You may think it’s impossible to know how well a zero-turn mower (or any other piece of equipment) is going to hold up over the long run, but don’t worry—here are a few key things to look for:

  • Steel gauge number – The lower the number of the steel’s gauge, the greater its thickness.
  • Cast iron components – Cast iron spindle housings or other such parts are a must-have if you’re searching for a commercial grade zero-turn mower.
  • Serviceability – Look for easy-access service points to streamline the oil, filter and battery changes that will need to be performed to maximize your mower’s lifespan.

5.    Special features

If you’re going to invest in a new zero-turn mower, why settle for the same old same old? Take your turf maintenance to the next level by choosing a model that brings some innovation to the table. Look for special features such as an automatic parking break system in the steering handles, a sleek design or LED headlights for mowing in lowlight conditions.
