If you have less than half an acre, chances are a push mower is what you want. But if you’re dealing with a larger lawn, you’ll need something with a little more horsepower. This is where riding lawn mowers come in. Riding lawn mowers these days come in both gasoline and electric models, and both have advantages and disadvantages. Look for a mower that suits both your lifestyle and your lawn style: get a zero turn if you have a lot of trees or obstacles, go for a riding mower if you want the look of a tractor.
Best classic lawn mower
Sometimes you just want a classic. This entry-level riding mower has all the John Deere quality at a price that won’t break the bank. Reviewers love the way it handles tall grass and gentle inclines, the ride cushion, and the simple function.
Best Zero Turn Electric Lawn Mower
If you have a larger yard, but still want the fuel efficiency and low maintenance of a battery mower, now is your turn. The 100 amp battery lets you cut up to three acres on a single charge. Critics love its silence, ease of use, and the way it handles hills and rough spots.
Best Gasoline Zero Turn Lawn Mower
This popular zero-turn mower handles everything from slopes to peppered lawns with minimal fuss. Reviewers love the comfortable seat, easy-to-use controls, and large caster wheels, which minimize turf damage.
Best Compact Lawn Mower
If budget or space is an issue, consider this Troy-Built rear engine mower. It’s compact enough to fit into small spaces (for a riding mower, anyway) and yet can cut up to 1.5 acres with no problem.
Best premium ride-on mower
If you’re looking for a riding lawn mower and price isn’t an issue, you can spend more elsewhere, but you probably can’t spend it better. This battery-powered zero-turn mower has it all: Its six batteries deliver gasoline engine performance — cutting up to two acres — with the low maintenance and ease of an electric mower. It handles hills with ease, has an incredibly comfortable seat, and reaches speeds of 7 mph when cutting. But what critics seem to love the most is how fun it is to use.
