Tractor mower options.

The term “tractor mower” is a bit misleading.  Most people, when they think of tractor mowers, they think of an actual tractor, one of those large farm implements we see while driving down the highway.  Actually, in the retail world, riding lawnmowers are considered tractor mowers, and that means a great range of options for you to consider.

Riding lawnmowers are fine for what we consider to be small acreage situations, generally one or two acres.  Any area larger than that and time must be considered.  At the other end of the spectrum we have the quintessential tractor mowers, the type found on farms, the large John Deere’s, which are capable of mowing fifteen acres in an hour.

As a rule of thumb, the larger the tractor mower, the more powerful the engine is and the sharper and heavier the blades are.

Tractor mowing machine costs.

You can find riding lawnmowers which cost a couple thousand dollars at Home Depot.  You can find tractor mowers for the big jobs which cost $100,000 or more.  We do not mention any of that to discourage you, but we do think it’s important that you weigh need vs cost when making this decision.

What are your specific needs?

What do you need done, specifically? If you are mowing a golf course, or a minor league baseball field, you will want good equipment, and thus you need to plan on a major cost.  If you are simply mowing an acre behind your home, simply to keep it “looking good,” a riding mower is most likely all you will need.

We cannot answer that question for you, but we can offer this observation and warning: the larger the piece of equipment, the more power it generates, and the more power it generates, the more the danger factor increases.  We are big on safety at Keith’s Tractor Mowing.  We have known, personally, people who have attempted to operate big equipment without training and without safety precautions being taken, and it did not end up well for them.  And we do not want injury happening to you.  If you have a big mowing job of multiple acres, and either you don’t have the money for a large tractor mower, or you do not feel safe operating one, please consider finding a qualified professional to do the job for you.  Yes, it will cost you money to hire the job out, but it won’t cost you as much as a trip to the hospital emergency room.
