The process of shopping for a zero turn lawn mower is not an easy one. Many people compare it to looking for a new vehicle. With so many varieties of vehicles, it makes sense that most people end up feeling overwhelmed.

When looking at lawn mowers, specifically zero turning ones, the biggest factors you may want to consider are:
In addition to these factors, there are four grades you should be aware of:
Each one has a different cutting width, horsepower, cylinders, fuel tank, and prices.
To make it easier to understand, let’s tackle each of these grades in relation to the factors identified.
Entry Level Zero Turn Mower
The entry level zero turn mower is dependable and affordable. It will cut a lawn faster than a tractor because they can run at speeds of 7 miles an hour.
The components on the entry level mower are less expensive, which is what keeps the price lower than the higher grades. Due to the lesser expensive and smaller engine in these mowers, it’s not one for those who need to cut a lawn daily. It’s more of a weekend mower.
Mid-Grade Zero Turn Mower
This is the next level when it comes to zero turn mowers. It’s made of better components, so it can do more in less time.
This grade features heavy-duty fabricated mower decks made with gauge steel with welded critical joints to make it stronger. This has a stronger transmission, larger pumps, and wheel motors. Due to its increased torque ratings, it’s able to handle much bigger loads.
