How to Choose the BEST Commercial Lawn Mowers

Feb 14

Professional landscapers and equipment manufacturers CT make use of a variety of commercial-grade mowers to maintain grass, and you may be wondering if the mowers the landscape company employs on your Northeast Ohio property are up to the task.

Does a riding mower cut better than a push mower?


A riding mower is better than a push mower. Contractors with experience own both commercial zero-turn mowers. The dimensions of your property, the terrain (slopes and tight terrain), your budget, as well as the surrounding (noise allowances) are all factors that influence the type of mower that you pick.


Mowers can be driven, or walked behind. They are efficient and give better outcomes.


These are the times that you must use your riding mower on commercial property. Also, the times when you must use push mowers.

The riding mowers cover more ground in a shorter time than a walk-behind can.

What is the most suitable time to use a riding mower?


Most landscapers and equipment suppliers CT employ zero-turn riding lawn mowers. They are extremely powerful (up to 36 horsepower), have wide cutting paths (up to 72 inches), and spin on a dime (thus the name, zero-turn).


The riding lawn tractor is also available, however they are typically used by homeowners or in larger, municipal applications where batwing mowers are utilized to trim grass fields.


In the past decade, commercial zero-turn mowers have made significant progress. With features like independent suspension, they're more accommodating for employees and offer an exceptional cut.


When a riding mower is required on a property the following is the procedure:


  • Large open areas


Ride-on mowers are more efficient in a shorter amount of time than a walk-behind Their cutting widths are larger which means you can cut more grass in a shorter amount of time.


The cutting decks of walk-behind mowers are typically 21 inches in length, and riding mowers are three times as wide.


Efficiency is the key factor when it comes to grassy areas.


  • Land with no Slopes or land With Slight Slopes


Riding mowers are best used on flat ground or gradual slopes provided that the operator is not in danger of rolling over. Landscape contractors are adept at mowing all types of terrains, including steep slopes. To avoid slippage, they maintain an unending mow on the slope using riding mowers.


  • Thick and damp grass


The riding mowers are tough machines that can cut through dense grass, even when the grass is damp from morning dew or rain that has recently fallen. A responsible landscaper should avoid mowing grass that is damp as it may damage the turf. However, wet grass can still be cut using a riding mower.


When should you utilize the push mower?


Commercial estates employ walk-behind or push mowers that permit flexibility when it comes to mowing.

Self-propelled push and walk-behind mowers found on commercial estates offer mowing options to landscapers. They are able to be able to pass through gates too narrow to accommodate riding mowers.


If the property is home to several landscape beds that interrupt grassy areas and walkways, walk-behind mowers are easy to manage and practical.


Take into consideration these aspects when choosing a walk-behind lawn mower is the best choice for commercial properties


  • Space Constraints


If riding mowers are too large to fit through openings and between closely spaced garden beds, walk-behind mowers can. A walk-behind lawnmower can to trim fine grasses in between pathways and hardscape.


  • Turns And Twists


Push mowers offer more mowing control when landscaping includes beds with curved edges, as well as other boundaries against pathways, patios and roads, and other features.


  • Steep slopes


When a walk-behind mower is used over the hillside, a landscape worker obtains greater control when working on steep slopes (in a mowing pattern that is horizontal). While riding mowers can be used on moderate slopes, those with steep slopes might require the use of a walk-behind lawnmower. (In extremely difficult circumstances you may want to look into groundcover as a grass substitute in order to cut back on mowing completely.)
