Hi everyone! I have had an old push-mower for ages, but I really want to buy a new riding mower. What is the best riding lawn moweravailable on the market today, in y'all's opinions?

Depends on how big an area your trying to mow and how much landscaping you have to mow around and what your budget is.
I have nothing but John Deeres and have had great luck with them.
I have used a Z 245 for about 5 years and have over 2000 hours on it. Only thing I've done so far is change oil and belts.
I also have a LX that I use for a spare that hardly ever gets used. I start it up every few months and it always starts first crank.

This is one of those cases where the old phrase, "You get what you pay for," is very true.

I did commercial lawn-care for years. I can tell you, without a doubt, that better mowers are simply going to cost more money. There are a LOT of reasons why you can buy an MTD (for instance) riding mower for $699, while a commercial John Deere mower of the same size costs $3699.


My question to you is, what is your price range, and what are you looking for? Do you want a tractor-type mower? A zero-turn? A walk-behind? Shoot us that information, and maybe we can help you.
