What to look for in a walk-behind mower. There are so many to choose from. How do I make a decision.
Price is probably the best guide. If it is cheap, it is cheaply made. You know the old saying, “If it looks like a duck, waddles like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck”.

What does EX mean?
A personal choice that depends on the lawn itself.
Mulching can help very poor quality grass improve its growing ability and appearance over time. Blades of grass are 85% water, so when cut, the water evaporates very quickly. The husk that is left needs to come into contact with the soil so that it can be broken down.
It looks different because it is different. It combines the operator visibility and maneuverability of a zero-turn mower, whilst giving the better option of having the cutting deck clearly in front of the mower. In most cases turning is better than a zero-turn mower and it will leave an uncut circle of approximately 100cm, or eight inches, and without scuffing the grass. This is due to the unique articulated steering system of the Husqvarna Rider.

Realise that a ride-on mower is just that, something that allows you to mow a large area of grass while sitting down. Its not a slasher or a grader.
There are many choices of ride-on mowers, both in tractor-style and zero-turn types.
