These mowers operate like a bulldozer or tank in the way they can turn right back on themselves. Even though bulldozers and tanks use treads to control their movement and a zero turn lawn mower uses its rear wheels the principle is the same. By varying the amount and direction of drive power applied to each wheel you can control the movement of the machine. For example if both rear drive wheels on the mower are moving forward at the same speed the lawn mower will go forward in a straight line. If one wheel moves a little slower than the other the lawn mower will roll in the direction of the slower going wheel. And if you want the mower to roll in half circle just make one wheel turn backwards as the other moves forward. Normally zero turn lawn mowers have two rear drive wheels linked to hydrostatic transmission which is what transforms the engines power into hydraulic pressure.
While a riding lawn mower is quite a bit more expensive than a regular power mower there can be many advantages to buying one instead. You have just as many choices when it comes to riding lawn mowers for starters and then you also have zero turning radius mowers as well. With a zero turning radius mower you can cut around trees and shrubs on the first pass and get right up on the edge between the grass and the tree area. There are really two different types of riding lawn mowers. One is the zero turning radius the other the tractor style. Riding mowers are ideal for people who have a large area they have to mow and these have attachments for bagging grass clippings mulching capabilities and some models have a combination of both.
Do you want to have a great looking and well-trimmed yard but hate the idea of doing all that edging and cutting manually? The answer to your problem may lie in the world of zero turn lawn mowers. Zero turn lawn mowers are riding mowers that can turn right around 180 degrees within in its own body length. It can in reality go right around in a complete 360-degree circle. They were originally designed for industrial applications. Zero turn lawn mowers with their great maneuverability allowed landscape contractors and golf course maintenance folks to cut right up against and around obstacles without ever having to get off the mower and do any trimming.
It can also eject cut grass and weeds from the rear end and at the sides. To provide great traction during mowing front and reverse wheel steering is installed in Husqvarna lawn mowers. And the bio-clip can covert the leaves into fine mulch to assist in cleaning up later. The ride-on type of Husqvarna lawn mowers consume from 18 to 26 HP while the walk-behind types use 4.5 to 5.5 HP. The Husqvarna YTH2448 lawn tractor has a 24 HP Briggs & Stratton twin-cylinder with a mowing deck of 48. This can cut wide strips of grass effectively. Husqvarna Mowers also have the auto mowers. The auto mowers can suit you if you choose not to mow by yourself. You do this by pinning a wire to the ground which then creates a boundary for the operation of the mower. After doing this the only thing you have to do is just turn the switch on. Popular and efficient Husqvarna lawn mowers were recently rated the best mowers by Popular Mechanics.
