Ride on mowers allow completion of large yard mowing in a fraction of the time. If your lawn is an acre or more, you might want to consider the time savings realized by using a ride on mower. Even if your lawn is less than an acre but is mostly wide open space, or has regular patches of thick grass or weeds, a riding mower might still be a good option for you. Additionally, ride on mowers can tow carts, leaf vacuums, grass bags and push snow blowers which push mowers cannot do.
