Lawn MowersLawn Mowing GuideLawn Mowing History

lawn tractor illustration Lawn tractors are popular alternatives to power lawn mowers, especially for large lawns.  Larger than a riding mower and smaller than a garden tractor, a lawn tractor is ideally sized for mowing one or two acre lawns.  In recent years, increased competition has driven prices for well-equipped tractors to well under $1,500, and major brands are including more standard features in popular price models.  Lawn tractors will typically mow a 36 inch to 48 inch swath and can attach a variety of carts, plows, and other implements.  Low cost, gear-driven tractors are available for about $1,000 whereas automatic drive models with hydrostatic transmissions may range up to about $2,500.

red lawn tractor and mower Riding lawn mowers are becoming more popular as prices become more reasonable and premium features are now part of the package.  All tractors can discharge clippings on the side, and most include a mulching accessory that puts the clippings in the lawn, not on top of it.  Mulch bagging kits are also popular accessories, though they do add hundreds of dollars to the cost of the mower.  Depending upon your needs, there are attachments that allow your mower to clear snow, tow a cart, or plow a garden.

Some larger tractors can be used for gardening and landscaping tasks as well as lawn maintenance.  They feature a variety of optional accessories, from front loaders to tow-behind tillers, and may include hydraulic controls.

Here on, we feature a few basic lawn tractor safety tips and mower selection guidelines as well as a list of lawn tractor manufacturers.  You can also learn how grass lawns became popular during the nineteenth century as various lawn mowing machines were invented and developed.
