A good lawn tractor can make your yard and garden maintenance a lot easier,
especially if you have a lot of property to keep up. Here are a few tips for
selecting the best lawn tractor for you and your property:
Conclusion - The best lawn tractor for you might not be the most
expensive model or one that's a step bigger than your neighbor's. Spend only what
you need to spend in order to get a good tractor that does exactly what you need
it to do. Anything more is overkill.
- First of all, do you even really need a lawn tractor? If
your yard is not much larger than your house, probably not. I regularly see people attempting
to mow a 100' x 50' lot with a huge lawn tractor. They barely have room to turn
- How much grass do you need to mow? Does your lawn cover 1/3 of an acre of
land? 1/2 acre? An acre or more? The more yard you have to mow, the more
horsepower and cutting width you'll need.
- What exactly do you want your lawn tractor to be able to do? If all you want to
do is mow the lawn, a basic tractor will do just fine. If you want to pull a
trailer or use garden attachments you'll need to make sure that your lawn
tractor has the equipment necessary to use them.
- Do you prefer a specific brand? These days most brands of lawn tractors are
very good. You could opt for a high-end model from John Deere, an economical
Murray or something in between. Buy whatever you want, but be prepared to pay a
premium for the more expensive name brands.
