Driving a riding-on mower is not only easy, but it could also be a pleasant and amusing experience.
Riding-on mowers can be divided depending on their structure: our catalogue includes both classic mowers featuring a large front part, and the newest rider mowers, more compact since without grass collector, equipped with single-blade deck and therefore suitable for smaller surfaces. These models are purchased instead of lawn mowers, with the purpose of mowing the lawn while sitting down.
The differences between a rider mower and a classic mower are not merely aesthetic, but also structural and functional. Classic riding-on mowers are used to cut taller grass and suitable for larger surfaces.

Riding-on mowers can be also divided by the position of the motor. In fact, rider mowers mount it in the rear part, that is behind the seat, not inside the front part. This makes the machine easy to drive. Moreover, rider mowers do not feature extended front part, which makes them suitable for working among obstacles such as trees and flowerbeds. The absence of the motor in the front part and the resulting shape also provide greater visibility, ensuring a 360 degree view of the turf.
