THE WORD ON COMMERCIAL LAWN MOWERS -
WHAT ARE THE PROFESSIONALS REALLY USING?

When selecting a commercial lawn mower - first ask yourself, what mowers do professionals use? Industrial style lawn mowers are typically wider with deeper decks and come with a whole lot more suction than a residential lawn mower.

Purchasing a commercial lawn mower requires careful consideration - to ensure that you factor in your preferences and needs. The three most commonly used commercial lawn mowers are ride on, zero-turn or a walk-behind push mowers.

Ride on mowers are popular for obvious reasons - they are perfect for wide expanses of grass and multiple acres where operator fatigue is a concern. Driving a ride on mower is a bit like driving a car, many even have an automatic transmission and headlights. Popular commercial brands include Rover, Dixon, Cub Cadet, Country Clipper and Scag.

Zero-turn mowers are increasing in popularity amongst gardeners and landscapers due to their great maneuverability and high speeds. A zero-turn mower is essentially a standard ride on mower, except it has a turning radius of zero. Instead of a steering wheel, most zero-turns have two throttles that are used to control the direction and rotational speed of each drive wheel. Zero-turn lawn mowers are built to cut exceptionally close to any obstacle - eliminating the need to trim edges. These mowers are perfect for cutting large, flat areas of grass with obstacles such as trees or ponds. Commercial brands to consider are Cub Cadet, Rover, Dixon, Scag & Country Clipper.

Small walk behind push mowers are not typically used for commercial purposes, yet they are handy to have. Push mowers are generally only used for small or narrow areas where a larger mower cannot be used. Honda have produced a fantastic line of walk-behind mowers, ideal for smaller areas that your larger mowers cannot reach.

What is the difference between a commercial lawn mower and a residential lawn mower?

There are a number of significant differences between commercial and residential mowers - in both durability and construction.

A commercial mower is generally crafted from higher quality, more costly materials to extend the mower's lifespan and improve it's overall performance.

The cutting decks on commercial mowers are generally constructed from higher grade materials to promote a higher blade speed and reduce any chance of clumping.

The engines featured in commercial mowers are typically higher in quality and horsepower, with two cylinders and better displacement.

Purchasing a lawn mower shouldn't be a terrifying task; it should be a pleasant experience - like buying a car. In order to make an informed choice, do your research and don't be afraid to ask for a test drive prior to purchasing a commercial mower - I mean you wouldn't buy a car without a test drive first right?
