Ride on mowers

Recommended Posts

I need a ride on mower, to cut my grass at home.

 

I know nothing about them and would really value any advice.

 

I'm thinking secondhand and with a collection box.

 

Many thanks :001_smile:

I am a dealer for a brand called stiga although we do do mowers that collect i would realy recomend "multi clip" the grass is clipped several times, the clipping that are left decompose in 2 hours. The other benifets are quicker mowing time, less fuel, feed the grass at the same time ect. no mess no fuss

IMO Dave, if you actually need a ride on I would go for new.

 

The good second hand ones are hard to find. Many are already causing problems or worn out and have been replaced by a new one.

 

If you were talking commercial machines it would be a different matter, a bit like asking would you buy a second hand domestic grade saw?

 

Anyhow, heres one the old boy has just bought;

I am told that Scag mowers are very good. A mate has a zero turn one which he is VERY pleased with.

 

Edit- I was going to add that TCD would be on here in a mo, with good experience and advice.....TCD you must have posted at the same time as me lOL

My old man sells deck mowers from 4' to 40', you need a tractor of course, but a wee kubota or something could be picked up cheap.

 

I used one on my wee tractor to cut some grass for a client, the grass was 3' high and really a flail job but the mower left a really nice finish. They dont collect as they are the mulching kind.:001_smile:

tbh if you want a tractor than can do bits and pices as well as mower get a kubota...but if you want a mower get a mower not a tractor...ive seen hundreds of people make that mistake
