Ride-on mowers - Buyers Guide

Ride-on mowers – Buyer’s Guide part one

Watch the first video in our two-part Buyer's Guide to ride-on mowers.

If you have a large lawn and want to limit the time you spend mowing, it might be worth buying a ride-on mower.

Ride-on mowers broadly divide into lawn riders, lawn tractors and front-seated mowers, with a ‘go-cart’ type design. Which type you opt for will depend on the size of your garden, the type of terrain to be mowed and, of course, your budget.

With such a wide range of models available, how do you go about choosing the best ride-on mower for your garden? Watch our two-part video Buyer’s Guide, in which we outline all of the things you need to consider when buying a ride-on mower.

In part one, we look at model types, assessing your site, mower cutting width, ease and comfort of use as well as accessibility of engine and fuel tank.
