10 things to consider before buying a zero-turn mower

before buying a zero turn mower

Considering making the move and investing in a zero turn mower? There are a few things to consider first:

#1 - The size of your block

The size of the block you are looking to mow will determine what model and specs you need to get the job done.

Do you have a residential lawn to mow? Try the Tough residential ZT2000 range. With a lot of the tough specs you would expect from the commercial machines, but in a smaller package.

Are you looking to mow multiple properties daily as part of your business? You could be looking at the Bobcat commercial range of zero turn mowers. Super quick on the turf to keep you mowing and getting the job done quicker.

Do you have contract work and need to mow lots of very large grass areas? Consider looking at the Super commercial or Extreme Commercial Bobcat Mower range.

#2 - The condition of your block

Are you mowing lawn on rough, rocky ground?

The ground conditions will impact which zero turn mower you need as most zero turns are not very stable. Bobcat Mowers are built tough.

Light on the turf for delicate areas and operator seats with excellent suspension to get you through those long tough lawns in complete comfort.

#3 - Is you block flat or sloping

What degree slope will you be mowing?

This needs to be taken into account as not all zero turns are created equal.

 

#4 - Is it necessary for your lawn mower to have a brake?

#5 - Will you feel comfortable without a steering wheel?

#6 - What size cutting deck should your zero turn lawn mower have?

This depends again on the size of lawn you need to mow. Larger deck sizes will get the job done quicker. Smaller deck sizes will be able to maintain tighter or smaller spaces.

Do you have a residential lawn to mow? Try the Tough residential ZT2000 range. With a range of different deck sizes in the smaller Bobcat Mower, you are sure to find a deck size that suits.

Are you looking to mow multiple properties daily as part of your business? You could be looking at the Bobcat Mowers commercial range.
