Kubota Lawn Mower Buyers Guide
Whether you're a seasoned landscape professional or a homeowner tackling that yard to-do list having the right lawnmower in your shed can save you valuable time and produce a better-looking outcome.
Lawnmowers are pretty straight forward and accomplish the same job however, there are many styles and features to choose from. Here’s everything you need to know about zero turns, stand on, front mount, walk-behind mowers, and lawn tractors to make an informed decision.
Five Things To Consider First:
If you have a 1/2 acre or less, a stand behind mower is your best choice. Tackling an area much bigger than this with a stand behind will waste your time and energy, especially during our summers. When working on areas bigger than 1/2 acre a riding or stand-on mower will be your better option.
Next, you should consider what type of terrain you're dealing with. Is it mostly flat with no obstacles, or are there obstacles and hills? Just like lawn size, if you have a small flat patch of lawn, a walk-behind mower is all you need. If you have flower beds, trees, and rocks or hills to maneuver around a zero-turns mower will make your job easier than a standard ride-on option.
When it comes to the power supply, you have two choices -electric or gas, each has its pros and cons. Electric mowers are generally quieter, require less maintenance, and are easier to operate. Electric mowers are also less powerful and need to be charged often. Your gas options, on the other hand, are more powerful while also requiring more maintenance and of course, gas.
This consideration only matters if you are purchasing a riding lawnmower. Riding lawn mowers are a great choice if you have a lot of areas to cover. You may want to purchase attachments to fully utilize the power of your machine. Some attachments options are rakes and fertilizer spreaders, which are purchased separately. When purchasing a riding lawnmower, check that it is compatible with attachments that are in your price range.
Lastly, consider what you want to do with the grass clippings. The easiest option is to purchase a lawnmower that discards the clippings onto the lawn. As long as the clippings aren't thick, it can act as a great fertilizer. If you don't want to deal with grass clippings on your lawn, you can buy a machine with a bagger, which usually costs more but produces a cleaner result.
