Zero turn mowers have numerous time-saving features, including:
A John Deere EZ-Trak lawn mower has an average mower deck of 42 inches, and an average speed of 11km/hour. Compare this to a walk-behind mower, wherein the average person would travel at 4.5km/hour to push a 21-inch mower.
With an approximate crunch of numbers, we can learn that while it would take nearly two hours for a walk-behind mower to get through one acre of land, a zero-turn could obliterate the area in no more than 30 minutes.
Just imagine what you could do with an extra 90 minutes in your day…
Zero turn mowers have many advantages, but it’s important that you choose the mower best suited to your lawn. Keep in mind that mowing technique and the unique properties of your yard will affect your mowing time, and may call for the use of a different type of mower.
If you have a large residential property, if you need to be able to quickly maneuver around obstacles, or if you’re facing massive commercial jobs with tight time constraints, the speed and power of a zero-turn mower could be ideal.
