Getting the Best Mower
When it comes to commercial riding mowers and somewhat to mowers in general, there are some considerations for any purchase for commercial use. Most companies look directly at the cost of the mower before deciding if to continue with the purchase. Cost, while important is not the prime consideration due to the fact that this type of equipment is going to suffer a generous amount of use and be applied by various drivers over time. That is why the first consideration has to be driver comfort. If the vehicle is not comfortable to use, not safe to operate and not easy to operate, the odds of it being used effectively decrease substantially.
Of course, one does not have to go overboard with driver features, only that drivers will be able to use the mower efficiently and under a variety of operating conditions. This is important when deciding between a standup model or a riding model. The second consideration is service and repair. Accident will happen and repairs will be needed. The faster a unit can be repaired and placed back into service means the mower is making money, not sitting in a repair area. It is with these two considerations in mind, as well as efficiency and operating costs that here is presented five top commercial mower models.
