Looking for the best zero-turn mowers for sale in Somerville, Tennessee? You’ve come to the right place. Zero-turn mowers have become increasingly popular among homeowners and landscapers and understandably so. They are fast, agile, and powerful.
On regular riding mowers, such as John Deere’s lawn tractors, the steering is controlled by a steering wheel that turns the front tires and the speed is determined by how far you press the foot throttle. On John Deere’s Zero-Turn mowers,
steering and speed are controlled by two levers found on either side of the seat. The left lever controls how fast the drive wheel on the left side spins (the rear tire) and the right lever controls how fast the right drive wheel spins (the rear tire).
Because the levers operate independently of each other, you are able to change the direction the mower is going instantly, hence the name Zero-Turn. These mowers are great for anyone taking on a big yard that wants to get the job done quickly.

The size zero-turn you need is entirely based on what areas you will be mowing. If your yard is under an acre, one of the Z300 Zero-Turns or a lawn tractor would be a good fit for you. The Z500 and Z700 Zero-Turns are good machines for anyone mowing over an acre. The large size mowers are capable of mowing faster and provide you with more features.
When you are choosing your mower deck size, take into consideration how far apart obstacles are that you will be mowing between. For example, if you are mowing between rows of flowers or trees, how far apart are they? You want to make sure the desk is narrower than what you need to mow between. If your yard is wide open, it is a good idea to go with a larger mower deck because it will decrease your mowing time.
According to John Deere’s guidelines, you should change the oil after the first 8 hours of use and then once a year after that. If you are mowing in dusty environments, you should change your oil more often to keep the machine running smoothly. Make sure to check the oil every time before you mow.
