A lot of choosing your cutting deck size comes down to how much you are looking to mow. It also depends on if you are cutting a residential lawn or a bigger block with rougher terrain. In most residential cases, lawn mowers with a 42-inch cutting deck will be well-suited for the job. If you have a slightly bigger area and different terrain, you might want to go up to a 48-inch cutting deck. If you do have rougher terrain, keep in mind you can also get more heavy-duty decks.
A ride-on lawn mower is the more traditional option and what customers are more used to. However, suppose you have tight confines like trees, garden beds and other sorts of obstacles. In that case, a zero-turn can cut your mowing time down quite dramatically due to its versatility. However, the ride-on lawn mower is an excellent choice on hilly properties and where a lawn mower in straight lines or squarer areas is required. A lot also comes down to personal preference and what you feel more comfortable driving.
Entry-level models, such as the John Deere S100 ride-on lawn mowers, are perfect for customers looking to do away with the walk-behind lawn mowers. You may only have a small area of lawn to mow. However, this option is the most efficient way to get the job done whilst still being relatively cost-effective compared to other more advanced options. If you have a slightly bigger area, rougher terrain or even wanting the use of attachments such as pulling a trailer, we would advise you to let us help you find the right mower for you and go through the options in our range.
Horsepower is a good indicator of the longevity of the machine. Therefore, it is essential to match the horsepower of your ride-on mower to the amount and type of work it will be doing. If you were using a slightly smaller machine than what is required, it could lead to shortening the machine's life. In general, horsepower will increase as you go up the range, so it's a case of matching you with the right mower for the application you'll be using it for as well as your budget, rather than the horsepower itself.
The John Deere X-Series ride-on mowers range is a well-suited choice for most applications slightly bigger in scope. They have very reliable engines with a 4-year warranty giving customers peace of mind in the product. In addition, most things on these lawn mowers are beefed up from the 100 Series lawn mowers, so if the budget provides and you have anything from an acre and a half to 5 acres with rougher terrain, these lawn mowers would be a recommended choice.
A lot of cutting height for your lawn is based on the season. A good rule of thumb is to cut the property lower in spring and warmer times to promote growth. Conversely, in the cooler times of the year, it's advised to mow slightly higher to leave more leaf, allowing your lawn to capture more sun.
