Garden tractors go deep

Garden tractors are made to take a beating rain or shine. A heavy rain is no problem for a machine. A big puddle is also not an obstacle. But some but some models are complete waterproof. For test we go to extremes into the depth. The next movie shows the Honda 300 garden tractor putting to the proof. It took place in the Falcon River near Greenville.


The whole tractor under water and he does not show any weakness: A waterproof tractor It is not advised to go that extreme yourself, but the test was complete succesfull. With strong flows you probably lose your powerful machine.

For the next test we will go to the southern Mudfest. Moist and soft substrate is not the ideal subsoil for many vehicles. But garden tractors are made for extreme situations, so we will go to New Mexico to have a look what results are there. Driving forward, backward, turning, pulling attachments and other typical features are included.


We hope we gave you an impression of the power of garden tractors.

What is important in considering a garden tractor or riding mower?

1. Which functions would you like to do?
For just mowing a riding lawn mower is suitable. Do you like more comfort or do you like to do also light duty work (like sweeping, spreading and pulling a light cart), you can consider a light garden tractor. If you like to do more crafted works (like tilling, dozing and throwing snow), you will better consider a powerful garden tractor.

2. What is the acreage of lawn?
For small acreages less than an acre, a riding lawn mower is suitable, for larger acreages it would be better to consider a garden tractor with a large deck (about 50″).

3. Are there any obstacles in the land?
If so you can consider a manoeuverable garden tractor (with 18″ radius). If the land is very complex or has it many sharp edges you can consider a zero turn mower.

Ambiguities about garden tractors

What is the difference between a riding lawn mower and a garden tractor?

The main difference is the capability of the machine: A riding lawn mower is just for mowing lawns. They have moreover several attachment options, but they are not capable to do heavy pulling or lifting.

In general a garden tractor has more power (HP), so they are able to do these works as well as mowing. The advantage is you have more tools in one machine or tools which can be attached. Moreover due to the power a garden tractor is faster. But of course, garden tractors are more expensive than riding lawn mowers. So it is very important to realise your aims in considering a garden tractor.

What kind of tractors are there?

The last year there are many new types of tractors on the market. Together with the introduction of new types there were new naming for different tractors. These naming is not always clear or used clearly. Some brands use other terms than others. It does not make it easy, so we made an overview of the different types tractors.

What kind of mowers are there?

From simple upto advanced lawn mower systems…

An introduction to garden tractors

A garden is a nice place of a home. And it is very important to have natural environment close to your living place. To keep your yard that nice place or somehow make it, it regularly requires maintainance. And maintenance could be time consuming, especially if it is not done regularly. Some people like gardening and some people simply do not. If you do not like gardening or having busy days it is easier to postpone your garden work. And delay often leads to more work to do.

Besides the regularity of maintenance it is important to use the right tools. And these tools can make garden work more pleasant. For example irrigating your whole yard with a water can is probably not very efficient. And so grass could be mowed by walk behind mowers or propelled mowers, but for medium upto large acreages it could be a long time strenuous job. In that case garden tractors could be a considerable alternative.

With garden tractors lawn mowing is a enjoying job, at least if you like driving. The only thing that has to be done is caring for enough energy. Then you can to turn the key and you are ready to go. Now also must to be said first the provided manual has to be read before, but you do not need any license to drive. And keep in mind you do your job carefully, because working handling a powerful machine with sharp parts contains dangers. Then it could be pleasant for yourself and your envrionment.

Garden tractor jobs

The main known function of a garden tractor is the just described mowing job. But what garden tractors make unique is that these machines can usually perform more work than only mowing lawns. Today there are many different models garden tractor for sale. Depending on the model and power garden tractors are also able to do heavier jobs than lawn mowing. The main possibilities are digging, carrying heavy packages, plowing earth and doing tough earth-moving jobs. These multifunctionality does distinct a garden tractor from regular lawn mowers, excavators or other machines.

Garden tractor, a compact tractor

With respect to his big brother of conventional size a compact garden tractor is much easier to use. The compact tractors can make sharper bends and even a zero turn radius. This means that the machine can turn without moving forward or backward. The compact garden tractor naturally consumes less energy and this energy source has not necessarily to be diesel or any other fossil fuel. Many, especially new models, contain a chargeable battery. It depends on the goal which tractor would be ideal, but for farm lands a heavy tractor is probably the best option.

The rear-hitch

Many garden tractors have a rear-hitch. This creates the opportunity to attach a trailer to the garden tractor. But with the rear-hitch it is also possible to complement the possibilities with the garden tractor with rear-hitch attachments. With different accessories, it is also possible to drag timber, sweep roads, pull cart, remove leafs, spread fertilizer and shift snow. So in autumn, winter, spring and summer time he could prove its value.

Zero turn radius mowers

Mowing a rectangular with straight edges land fast and straight requires some experience. But after lawn mowing is edging and cutting of the lawns in many garden a chore. A lawn mower can not always reach every edge in the yard. It is annoying to spend large part of the gardening time on this job. But nowadays there is a new kind of lawn mowers and models garden tractor for sale available which can execute this work mechanically. These lawn mowers are called zero turn radius mower, shortly called zero turn mower or ZTR.

This type of mowers has an extra degree of freedom. Zero turn mowers have the capability to turn stationary a half circle in two directions. This means that these machines are able to reach a full circle mowing without going backward or forward. This moving mechanism is not a standard, but different producers of the garden tractor for sale developed various technical solutions.

The Front-mount mower and mid-mount mower

There are mainly two types of zero turn mowers.
The first type, the mid-mount mower has caster wheels and drive wheels under the mower deck. This type is suitable for mowing along straight parts like fences and walls.

The second type, the front-mount mower, has a mower deck out-front in front of the double or single front wheels. Beside mowing along walls and fences it provides the ability trimming well around trees, shrubs, and objects.

In considering zero turn radius mowers it is important to check the deck size. This determines the productivity of the mower. In standard sizes for decks are 48 or 72 inches. Fabricated decks are not better than stamped decks. The shape is not important for the durability, but the quality of the material is essential. Zero turn mowers usually contain stamped decks.

The handle bar

The handle bar is the control over this turning part. Many models garden tractor for sale have two handle bars to make it easier control the mower deck. Furthermore it takes less effort to make a move. The system returns automatically in a neutral stand when you release the bar.

Mulching the grass

After the mowing work you can choose two options: Compost the clippings or throwing it away. Composting is a better option for environment than thowing it away. But actually there is a third option: You can also choose to mulch the grass. Hereby the grass can recycle and it is thus even better for environment than composting. Furthermore you do not need a compost heap.

With the Zero Turn Radius application your mowing work leads to a better result. There has also be said honourly that zero turn mowers are more expensive, but the difference in price between these and the conventional ones reduces. There are also more models not just only for mowing but models garden tractor for sale which are more multifunctional and also with the zero turn function. So if you like to you can have a look at garden tractors for sale. There will be released different models with the zero turn radius function.
