A riding lawn mower, or yard tractor, is a luxury item. Most people who can afford them buy them for any number of reasons. Most commonly, they have a large yard that takes a long time to mow with a walk-behind mower and they would rather sit to mow than walk and stand. Regardless of your reasons for wanting to buy a yard tractor, there are several benefits to owning and operating such a machine.
You Can Mow Your Lawn Even If You Have a Bad Back
Sometimes people buy a yard tractor because they have bad backs and experience excruciating pain using a walk-behind mower. When you cannot mow your lawn because of a physical ailment, the chore either continuously falls to someone else in the house, or your yard becomes overgrown. A riding mower/yard tractor allows you to continue taking care of your yard without a lot of pain.
You Can Mow Tall Grass, Brush and Even Short Grass
Every yard tractor comes with a cutting deck. The cutting deck is the part of the machine located underneath the seat of the tractor and between its front and back wheels. You can lift and lower the cutting deck with knob controls on the drive panel of the yard tractor. This allows you to cut short grass, tall grass, and brush too.
You Can Buy Extra Attachments to Do More Yard Jobs
With a walk-behind mower, you can never do all the jobs that a yard tractor can do with extra attachments. You can buy a tow-behind rake, cultivator, drum roller, etc. You can get attachments for the front end as well. Here, you can add a front loader accessory for snow or dirt removal. You can also buy a snowblower attachment. It is the multi-yard tool-in-one.
You Never Have to Rent Another Landscaping or Excavating Tool Again
Yard projects are simplified when you have a yard tractor. For example, most people would drive to a rental store, rent a yard tractor with attachments or a construction vehicle, attach it to the back hitch, drive home, hurry the project up, and then drive the equipment back. Now, you never have to rent any of that ever again. You never have to worry about rental fees, or late fees charged for late return of the rental. As long as you have the attachments you need and a yard tractor (e.g., Simplicity tractors), all of that is in the past.
