Reviewing Ride On Lawn Mowers – The Two Best Models Available
For large lawns, there is no better option than to consider a ride on lawn mower – also known as lawn tractors, they are strong, powerful and saves you the strain of walking around the lawn to mow it.
Ride on lawn mowers are exactly that, you sit on them and ride while you mow your lawn. You can get ride on mowers that collect the grass clippings and mowers which will mulch the grass, they have adjustable cut lengths.
In this post we look at two of the best ride on lawn mowers currently offered by Amazon.
Number 1 – Lawn-King RC125
An advancement to The SG60RDE, The RC125 (learn more here!) also made by Lawn King is a more powerful lawn mower with better features;
- Powered by Briggs & Stratton single cylinder 344cc start engine which makes it very powerful and very effective
- A wide cutting width of 76cm so you can easily cut more grass from your passes
- Discharge option available
- Semi automatic transmission making it easier to control when riding
- 5 different cut lengths, select from 30mm – 95mm to fine tune your lawn to the finish you desire
- A huge 200 litre grass collection bag so you spend less time emptying the clippings and more time mowing the lawn
- Floating deck which increases air flow and promotes powerful grass collection
- Twin head lights allow for greater visibility in poorly lit conditions
- Rugged all steel construction
- A very tight radius of 46cm / 18″ making manoeuvring around flower beds and other objects very easy
A very good ride on mower with a powerful engine, adjustable cutting heights, a tight and precise turning ratio allowing for a very close cut and the extremely large collections bag. The RC125 gives you many of the features you would usually get from a garden tractor at a fraction of the cost and size.
The RC125 is small in physical space, powerful enough to cover large gardens and lawns upto 1 acre.
It is also very nice to ride whilst mowing the lawn, it takes the “work” out of work.
