Residential Zero Turn Mowers? – Go Pro

Simply drive around Atlanta and take note of the landscapers and their equipment. Notice anything similar? Chances are, more likely than not, they are using Exmark Mowers to cut. Whether it be a zero turn rider or a stand-on mower or a walk behind mower, the pros in Atlanta use Exmark. Perhaps you should be using an Exmark Mower too.

If you’re like me, you love your grass, but would really like to spend more time doing something else rather than cutting. This has probably led you to research zero-turn riders. Here are a few things you should know:

Most zero-turn riding lawn mowers don’t come with a steering wheel; instead, they frequently have two levers that control two motors connected respectively to each rear wheel. They typically steer something like this: Pushing both levers forward causes the mower to move forward, while pulling them back causes it to reverse. The farther you push in either direction, the faster you go. To curve right, you push the left handle farther forward than the right handle, and vice versa if you want to curve left. If you want to make a swinging turn — which leaves no grass uncut and sets you up that much faster for your next pass down the yard — simply push the appropriate handle forward while keeping the other one in neutral, causing the mower to pivot around the stationary wheel. You can also spin around completely in place by moving one lever forward and pulling one lever back with equal force, in which case you’ll be pivoting the mower around the central point between the two drive wheels.

Zero-turn mowers help save time because they’re easy to handle, highly maneuverable and constantly in action. Plus, with a zero-turn mower, you can cut closely around obstacles like bushes and flowerbeds, eliminating the need to waste time trimming with a weed whacker. (source)

Now if you start to do a tiny bit of research you’ll probably do a search for residential zero turn mowers… and that will probably lead you to a certain Popular Mechanics article that was written in early 2012. I will point out that if you read the comments of that article, you will probably find better content than the article itself. The author clearly didn’t do much research into the better brands of mowers. He is obviously more interested in your first purchase price than quality and life expectancy of the product.

Again, I remind you to take a look around and see what the pros are using EVERYDAY and decide if you want an inexpensive import that you will have problems getting serviced. The fact is that Exmark sells residential zero-turns and since we have ALL of Exmark mowers instock at any of our stores, you’ll get to see the differences side by side.

Because the fact is that you may be extremely happy with an Exmark Quest mower. It was designed to be the best premium residential zero-turn rider. It is designed and manufactured by engineers who KNOW mowers. You may decide that you would rather step up to an Exmark Pioneer for your residential lawn needs. It has a few more commercial features that you’re not gonna find in your big boxes model. Or you could step all the way up into a Lazer and never need to buy a mower again.

With current pricing, rebates and financing, you’re not gonna be disappointed.

So, if you’re researching Residential Zero Turn Mowers and know that there has to be a better solution… There Is!
