Choosing a Zero-Turn Mower (Video)

Zero-turn mowers are a great investment for homesteaders with large lawns. In this video, learn how to choose the best one for your needs.

Zero-turn mowers can provide landowners efficient and comfortable mowing, but the options are virtually endless. For our article Best Zero-Turn Mowers, we had a team of 14 homeowners test 27 different zero-turn mowers from 14 brands and rate the mowers on comfort, ease of use, handling and more. Our testers discovered huge variations in these qualities as well as the price of each mower.

How will you pick the right zero-turn mower for your homestead? We recommend checking out the video above and then heading over to our mower scorecard. Test a few yourself before committing; you’ll want to be comfortable for longer rides.

If you already own a zero-turn mower, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the selection process and any product recommendations you may have. Just leave us a comment below.
