How To Choose The Best Lawn Care Equipment For Your Business

Feb 14

Equipment providers and professional landscapers employ an array of commercial-grade mowers that can be used to maintain grass. You might be wondering what equipment your Northeast Ohio landscape company uses can handle the job.

Does a riding mower cut better than a push mower?


A riding mower is superior to a push mower. The most experienced contractors own both commercial zero-turn mowers. The type of mower you choose will depend on the dimensions of your property, the terrain (slopes and tight areas), the environment (noise allowances) as well as your budget.


Mowers can be driven or driven behind. They can be used to save time and provide more efficient outcomes.


These are the instances when you need to use your riding mower for commercial properties and when you should utilize a push mower.

Which is more efficient? Which is better: Electricity or Propane?


The riding mowers do more in a shorter time than a stroller mower can.

What is the most suitable time to use a riding mower?


The majority of landscapers and equipment dealers in CT utilize zero-turn riding mowers. They are powerful (up to 36 horsepower). They also have large cutting pathways (up 72 inches) and can change direction on the fly (thus the name, zero-turn).


There are riding lawn mowers that are also on the market. They are typically used by homeowners and in municipal areas with large areas where batwing mowers are employed for trimming grass.


In the last decade, commercial zero-turn mowers have developed a lot. Because of features like independent suspension, they're more comfortable for the crew and provide a high-quality cut.


If a riding mower is required on a property, It is as follows:


  • Large, open areas


Riding mowers can take on more ground in a shorter amount of time than a stroller mower, and their cutting widths are bigger and allow you to cut more grass in a shorter amount of time.


The cutting decks on walk-behind lawn mowers are usually 21 inches long, and riding mowers are three times larger.


Efficiency is essential when it comes to grassy areas.


  • Land With No Slopes Or land With Slight Slopes


Riding mowers perform best in areas of smooth ground or gradual hills, where the operator isn't in danger of falling over. Landscape contractors are adept at mowing all types of terrains, including steep slopes. They also regularly mow over hillsides when using riding mowers to ensure that they do not slip.


  • Grass that is thick and damp


Riding mowers are robust machines that can slice through thick grass, whether the grass is damp due to morning dew or recent rain. A responsible landscaper should steer clear of mowing wet grass since it can cause damage to the turf. But, damp grass can still be cut using riding mowers.


When is the best time to use the push mower?


Mowing versatility is made possible by push mowers or walk-behind mowers utilized on commercial estates.

Self-propelled push or walk-behind mowers used on commercial estates offer mowing options to landscaping staff. They can fit through gates that are too small for riding mowers.


When a property has several landscape beds that interrupt grassy areas, walk-behind mowers are also convenient to handle and efficient.


Considering these aspects when choosing an electric lawnmower with a walk-behind is best for commercial properties.


  • Space Constraints


Walk-behind lawn mowers are great for situations where riding mowers are too large to fit through narrow openings or between tightly arranged gardens. A walk-behind mower can also provide a clean-cut in grass sections between hardscape and pathways.


  • Twists and turns


Push mowers allow for greater mowing control when a landscape includes beds with curved edges and other borders against pathways, patios and roads, and other features.


  • Steep slopes


Using a walk-behind mowing device and the hillside landscapers have greater control over steep slopes (in the form of a horizontal mowing pattern). While riding mowers can handle modest slopes, particularly steep inclines may need the use of a walk-behind lawnmower. (In challenging circumstances, you may want to investigate groundcover as a grass substitute to avoid mowing entirely.)


Customized Commercial Lawn Care


A professional landscaping company evaluates the commercial property you own to ensure that the commercial zero-turn mower crew is prepared correctly to maintain the grounds.


This means that you can exclusively use riding mowers or walk-behind mowers for certain property types. We also employ both kinds of mowers from time to time. This allows us to manage large, open areas and pay close attention to detail in narrow curving grass patches.
