    A ride-on mower can make short work of a large and vigorous lawn.

    Ride-on mowers cut a wide swathe of grass – anywhere from 700mm to over 1 metre. Compare this with the 460 to 480mm width of the standard walk-behind rotary mower and you can see how much more quickly you can mow large areas.

    We tested 8 ride-on mowers: 1 true ride-on and 7 tractor-style mowers. Our test results and buying guide will help you choose a good model.
