The Q&A Archives: Lawn tractor

Question: For a lawn tractor, which would you recommend for an area of less than 2 acres, and for an area of between 2 1/2 and 3 acres?

Answer: Here are some general guidelines to help you choose. Be aware of the width between any obstacles - you won't be able to mow between close obstacles if the cutting blade has a wide swath. For a 1/2 to 1 acre lawn: You will need a mower with at least a 14 hp engine and a 42" cutting width. For a 1 to 2 acre lawn: A cutting width of between 42" and 46" with a 14 to 16 hp engine should be adequate. 3 Acres and above - For this size lawn area an engine size of between 18 and 24 hp and a 46" to 54" cutting deck would be the best buy. Hope this information is helpful.
