When Should You Use a Push Mower Vs. a Riding Mower?

Feb 14

Equipment providers CT and professional landscapers use an array of commercial-grade mowers that can be used to maintain grass. It is possible to wonder what equipment your Northeast Ohio landscape company uses is up to the job.

Do riding mowers cut better than the push mower?


A riding mower is superior to push mowers. The most experienced contractors own both commercial zero turn mowers. The size of your property's terrain (slopes and tight terrain) along with your budget and the surroundings (noise allowances) can all impact the kind of mower you select.


Both riding and walk-behind, Mowers can save you time and deliver better results.


These are the occasions where you can employ your riding mower on commercial property. Also, when you should utilize the push mower.


Mowers in Depth


Which is better? Propane, Electricity or Gasoline?


Riding mowers accomplish more work in a shorter amount of time than a walk-behind could.

What is the ideal time to utilize a riding mower?


The majority of landscapers and equipment dealers CT employ zero-turn riding lawn mowers. They are extremely powerful (up to 36 horsepower) They also have large cutting pathways (up to 72 inches), and can spin on a dime (thus the name"zero turns").


Riding lawn tractors are also available, but they're typically used by homeowners or in large municipal applications where batwing mowers are used to cut grass fields.


The zero-turn commercial mower has developed a lot in the past 10 years. They can cut top-quality lawns and are much more comfortable for the crew thanks to features such as independent suspension.


It's the following:


  • Large, open, and spacious areas


A riding mower will cover more ground in a shorter time as compared to a walk-behind mower. The cutting widths of their mowers are also wider so that you are able to chop more grass in fewer time.


The cutting decks on walk-behind mowers usually measure 21 inches wide and riding mowers are three times as wide.


When it comes down to mowing large grass areas, efficiency is vital in terms of both time and money.


  • Land with no Slopes or land With Slight Slopes


Riding mowers work best on level ground and gentle slopes, where the operator doesn't run the risk of falling over. Landscape contractors are experienced in mowing all kinds of terrain, including steep slopes. They will also be sure to mow the slopes when using riding mowers so that they don't slip.


  • A lush and damp grass


Riding mowers are durable devices that can cut through the thick grass, even if the grass is damp from morning dew or rain that has recently fallen. While a responsible business landscaper will steer clear of mowing grass that is wet as it may damage the turf, wet grass can be cut well and is best performed with a riding mower.


What is the right time to use a push mower?


Mowing flexibility is provided by walk-behind or push mowers that are used in commercial estates.

Commercial estates make use of self-propelled walk-behind or push-button mowers that allow for flexibility in mowing. They are able to fit through too narrow gates to accommodate riding mowers.


Walk-behind lawn mowers are useful when there are several landscape beds that interfere with grassy areas.


Be aware of these elements when deciding if the walk-behind lawn mower is the ideal choice for commercial properties:


  • Space limitations


Walk-behind mowers work well in situations where riding mowers are big to pass into small spaces or between the garden beds that are tightly spaced. A walk-behind mower has the ability to trim fine grass sections in between pathways and hardscape.


  • Twists and turns


Push mowers offer greater control over landscapes that have curving edges or other boundaries that are in direct opposition to patios, walkways, and roads.


  • Steep slopes


A walk-behind mowing machine is used to control a slope. While riding mowers can be used on small slopes, especially steep slopes may require the usage of a walk-behind. (In the event of extreme conditions you might want to explore groundcover as a grass substitute to cut back on mowing completely.)


Customized Commercial Lawn Care


A professional landscaping company will assess your commercial property and verify that the zero-turn mower crew is properly trained to maintain the landscaping.


This means that you are able to only use riding mowers, or walk-behind ones, on certain property types. Both types of mowers are often used. This allows us to manage huge open areas as well as pay attention to the finer details in small, curving grass sections.
