The engines are usually in the eight to ten horsepower range. If you have many obstacles such as trees or groups of shrubs you may want to consider a zero turning radius riding mower. These turn on a dime and are ideal for mowing difficult areas.

Medium sized riding mowers provide better performance on hilly terraine and are usually rated for mowing areas of one to three acres.

Commercial riding lawn mowers are designed for really large lawns including fields, they can be very expensive for the average homeowner.

In addition, you can usually attach other features, like small towable utility trailers and snow plows for snow removal. Which ever model you choose make sure that it features a comfortable seat for the many hours you will have behind the wheel.
