A zero turn is classified as a standard riding lawn mower that has a turning radius that is effectively zero. Even though that is achieved in different ways with different models, the most common method is through the hydraulic speed control of each drive wheel.
Zero turn mowers mow quickly, saving time and energy trimming around trees, flower beds, and other obstacles more easily than traditional riding lawn tractors. Not having to back up and go forward or circling around bushes repeatedly will cut the time put into yard maintenance in half.
All zero turn mowers are classified into 4 models types. Let’s look into their comparisons:
