Lawn Mower Buying Guide

It was another long Winter but we have finally made it into Spring. One of the best things about Spring is seeing all of the colors come back to life. That also means that the grass is coming back to life and with a little rain, it really grows in a hurry. You may be overwhelmed on how you’re going to handle all that grass, but lucky for you Van Wall has you covered with these simple steps on how to buy a lawn mower!

Size of Lawn

The first thing you’re going to want to look at is how big your lawn is. Are you going to need a riding mower or will a walk behind mower meet your needs? This can vary depending on the person, but generally most people have an idea based on past experience or by walking their lot.

Riding Or Walk Behind Mower

Type of Mower

Once you have determined if you’re going to get a riding mower or walk behind mower, the next step is to determine what features you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a riding mower that has great moverability and 42” deck, the John Deere Z335E is a great option to consider. If you’re looking at walk behind mowers and want something that is easy to start, the Honda electric start models lead the way. The best way to see what you like is to visit your nearest Van Wall Equipment location and check them out!

After finding the type of mower that best suits your needs, the next thing to look at is attachments. Are you going to need a bagging system to pick up grass and leaves? Maybe a mulch kit would fit your needs by grinding up the grass and leaves into small pieces. If your mower has a hitch a John Deere 10P cart could be helpful for you. There are hundreds of accessories for John Deere mowers and I’m sure there is one out there that can make your life easier.

Dealer Support

The last thing to look into when buying a lawn mower is what kind of support is offered. Having a great warranty provides reassurance and peace of mind. Unlike Deere and Honda, some manufactures have a limited warranty that may only cover certain parts and sometimes no labor at all. It’s also great to have a dealership that has your back. Van Wall always wants to be there to help whatever problem you have.
