Toro Lawn MowersYou have done your homework regarding brands of lawn mowers and have decided that you want the dependability and other fine characteristics that Toro lawn mowers are so well known for. Now you need to decide which of the Toro lawn mowers to purchase. Because Toro has a wide line of lawn mowers, it will be easy for you to match one to your needs and your budget. There are a few things that you should consider during your decision process.

  • Lawn Size – While it might be tempting to go with the largest top-of-the-line riding mower with zero-turn capabilities, if you have a typical urban/city lot, you are going to find that mower to be difficult to maneuver. On the other hand, if you have 3+ acres, the smaller Toro lawn mowers are going to have you exhausted each week feeling like you mowed your lawn with scissors. The terrain of your yard is also a consideration because you’ll need heavy-duty features if you have rough and uneven areas.
  • Residential or Commercial – Toro lawn mowers come in both residential and commercial-grade models. If you will be operating a lawn service, mowing large commercial areas or simply want to have the toughest you can get, then opting for a commercial-grade mower is advised. Alternatively, they also have regular residential grade and heavy-duty residential grade mowers, so the latter may be sufficient for your needs.
  • Features – Finally, you will need to decide which features you want. Options such as electric start, blade stop system, all-wheel drive self propel, paced self propel (it adjusts to your pace), vertical storage, and more are available on various models.
