What is the difference between zero turn and riding mower?
The primary difference between a zero turn mower and a riding mower lies in the steering controls and turning radius. As the name indicates, zero turn mowers can shift quickly, offering better maneuverability. Their deck is located in front of the machine and is usually much smaller than riding mowers or lawn tractors. All these features make them suitable for yards with sharp turns where traditional mowers may not reach. On the other hand, riding mowers have a wide turn radius but perform better on rugged terrains, including slopes and hills. They usually operate at a slower speed but give a cleaner cut.
