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.
If your lawn has edges with small radii, consider buying one of the tight-turning or "zero-turn-radius" tractor models that are more agile and maneuverable in small spaces. Most lawn tractors produce relatively high noise levels, so do wear ear protection when using any tractor. Be sure to buy from a dealer who offers pickup and delivery service for a nominal fee when your tractor requires periodic maintenance.
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.
