Having a yard in front of your home can make it look a lot more warm and welcoming to anyone who gets a look at it but if you’ve ever had a lawn of your own you know that it takes work to keep them looking good. Fortunately today’s homeowners get to enjoy the help of a wide range of lawnmowers designed to help you keep your yard in top condition with as little effort as possible.
If you want the best lawn you can get you need to find the right lawnmower to get the job done. You shouldn’t expect to just walk into a store and stumble on the perfect mower, doing research ahead of time will help ensure that your final purchase gets you the most for your money. To get started you should learn more about some of the top brands in the lawnmower business. In this article we will take a look at Ariens, Cub Cadet and Gravely lawn mowers so you can get a sense of which brand seems right for you.
We will start our search with Ariens, a company that has been making tractors, mowers and snowblowers out of Brillion Wisconsin since 1933. Ariens Mowers are even used to keep the White House lawn looking as pristine as possible so if you want to feel presidential their products are worth a closer look.
While their history and pedigree are impressive they still offer a range of lawn mowers that are affordable, compact and still powerful enough to get the job done right you should look into Ariens. Their riding mowers are known as some of the best when it comes to personal use.
The next company we will look at is also the youngest, even though it’s now been running strong for over half a century. Since its founding in 1961 Cub Cadet has been producing tractors and other types of outdoor machinery for over five decades. So while they may be the youngest on our list they still have plenty of experience in their field, both literally and figuratively.
Cub Cadet has been able to gain a reputation for being easy to maintain so if this is your first mower you might want to look at their models since even beginners can keep them running for years with a little effort and help. But this doesn’t mean that they are just for amateurs, their zero-turn mowers are perfect for lawn care professionals.
Our final brand is also the oldest, since 1916 Gravely has been producing tractors and other types of outdoor equipment. They’ve been able to survive for almost a century thanks to their dedication to durable machinery designed to handle tough jobs. While they may not be the biggest name they certainly have carved out a niche for themselves.
Gravely started out making machinery for agriculture and though they’ve scaled down their designs slightly you can still see that background in their modern mowers. Their zero turn mowers, stand on mowers and walk behind mowers are all built to handle larger tasks and yards. While they have a range of products in general their mowers are best if you are a bit more serious about mowing, whether you’re a pro or just someone with a large yard.
Choosing The Right Lawnmower For You
As you learn more about lawn mowers one thing that will become clear is that there is no one perfect lawn mower. A mower designed to be used by lawn care professionals may not be right be right for a homeowner who only needs to mow a little less than an acre a week.
