Husqvarna TS242D 107cm, 42 Inch Homeowner Lawn Tractor With 21.5hp Kawasaki FR Series V-Twin Cylinder Engine with Diff Lock 960410447

The TS 242D is ideal for homeowners and landowners with larger gardens who need a durable and comfortable tractor with high maneuverability. It is a powerful tractor with side ejection for demanding lawn care. Because the cutting deck ejects clippings, you get maximum capacity even on areas that are cut less frequently. The locking differential transmission gives superior traction in slippery conditions and slopes. Driven by a powerful Kawasaki V-Twin engine. Pedal-operated hydrostatic transmission and cast front axle means easy, trouble-free operation. Collector and BioClip kit are available as accessories.

The cutting deck is equipped with anti-scalp wheels, which reduce the risk of scalping when cutting uneven lawns.

Heavy cast front axle provides superior balance and stability, even with a collector.

Hood in solid steel construction, guarantees reduced paint fade compared to plastic.

Allows the tractor to maintain consistent speed, even in rough terrain.

Cup holder for refreshments while mowing.

Innovative Air Induction mowing system that draws clean air from the top and bottom of the deck, enhancing air flow which results in greater grass lift and superior cut.

Troy-Bilt TB30

Most affordable riding mower

  • Compact design
  • Affordable price compared to other models
  • Six-speed transmission
  • Rear-mounted engine
  • Mulching capable

Cutting width: 30 inches | Transmission: Six-speed manual | Power source: Gasoline | Mow in reverse: No | Mulching/bagger capable: Yes

While it's hard to find a riding mower that can truly be considered "budget-friendly," the Troy-Bilt TB30 is one of the most affordable models on the market. If you buy directly from Troy-Bilt, it retails for around 450,800, while retailers like Home Depot and Tractor Supply Company sell them for just a hair under 6500,000.

It features a 30-inch cutting deck, which is perfect for lawns that hit that rare middle ground of being too big for a push mower to be practical but not quite big enough to justify buying a 42 or 46-inch lawn tractor. The deck is designed to easily transition from a traditional side discharge to mulching grass to make it easy to re-feed your lawn with ultra-fine clippings. It also has a six-speed manual transmission, so you can set the forward or reverse speed that best suits your yard and go.

The body of the mower features a slim, compact design that's great for garages and tool sheds on the smaller side. Since the engine is mounted on the rear of the lawn mower, you'll have a better line of sight, which is great for seeing things like sticks and rocks that need to be removed and watching out for pets and children who may be nearby. And just because the engine is smaller doesn't mean it skimps out on power; with 10.5HP, you'll be able to pull garden carts, spreaders, sprayers, and other implements to tackle every outdoor chore.

John Deere 1570 TerrainCut

Best commercial riding mower

Cutting width: 60 or 72 inches | Transmission: Hydrostatic variable speed with optional AWD and cruise control | Power source: Diesel | Mow in reverse: Not specified | Mulching/bagger capable: Not specified

The John Deere 1570 TerrainCut is a commercial-grade lawn mower designed for handling places like golf courses, sports complexes, and public parks. But if you live in a rural area and have a 5- to 10-acre property to maintain, it can be a powerful asset to have in your workshop.

It's available only through local dealers or the official John Deere website, and if you go through the official site, you can customize aspects of the 1570 TerrainCut to better suit your needs. You can choose either rear or side discharging decks in either 60- or 72-inch lengths for ideal clipping disbursement and streamlined mowing. The gas tank holds up to 16 gallons (60.6 liters) of diesel fuel, so you can spend more time working and less time refilling your tank.

The 37.4HP engine and hydrostatic drive allow you to operate the TerrainCut like a car, and you can opt for all-wheel drive for better traction across steep or rough terrain. The mower has a "steer from the rear" design, meaning the back two wheels control the direction of the entire unit, which will take some getting used to if you've never driven something similar before, especially when driving in reverse.

The deck is stamped from seven-gauge steel and can be adjusted from one to six inches for cutting height, so you can maintain everything from upscale golf courses to grazing pastures and drainage ditches. And while the almost 28,000 price tag puts this mower squarely out of reach of typical homeowners, it's a worthy investment if you have a landscaping business or need to maintain a very large, rural property.

What is the best riding mower?

In my opinion, the Husqvarna YTH18542 is the best riding mower you can buy. It has a 42-inch stamped steel deck, dual cutting blades, and a mow-in-reverse feature for maneuvering around tricky areas and obstacles. It also has a hydrostatic transmission which allows you to operate the mower like a car: press the pedal and go, no more messing with levers.

Other than your budget, there are a lot of features and scenarios you have to consider while shopping for a new riding mower. The size of your yard will determine how wide the cutting deck should be, though either a 42 or 46-inch version will be more than enough for most yards.

You can choose either a manual or hydrostatic transmission. A manual model lets you "set and forget" your speed so you can FOCUS, while hydrostatic models operate more like cars, going faster the harder you press the pedal. This makes them more intuitive to operate, but also more expensive.

Zero turn mowers are designed for mowing in oddly-shaped areas or around lots of obstacles like trees, lamp posts, and lawn ornaments. They're called "zero turn" because they have a zero-inch turn radius; you pivot around either rear wheel for ultra-tight turning.

Choose this riding mower…

A well-rounded, gas-powered mower for yards up to two acres

A battery-powered riding mower for eco-friendly lawn care

A zero turn mower for maneuvering around obstacles or tricky areas

A compact riding mower for lawns a touch too large for a push mower

A commercial-grade mower for a landscaping business or large rural property

How did we choose these riding mowers?

Aside from price, I chose both gas and battery-powered riding mowers to give you a choice in how you handle yard work. Gas-powered models give you better run times and more horsepower, while battery-powered ones save you time and money on engine maintenance and help reduce your carbon footprint.

I also chose a variety of cutting deck widths for handling everything from 1 to 10 acres, including a commercial-grade model for large rural properties and landscaping businesses.

If you are looking for an electric riding lawn mower with all the power of a gas model without the fumes and lots of helpful features, the RYOBI 80V HP Brushless 42 in. Battery Riding Lawn Tractor is our top pick. According to the manufacturer, it has the equivalent of a 21-horsepower engine. We love that its three 80V 10Ah batteries allow you to cut up to 2 acres on a single charge (about 60 minutes of runtime) and quickly recharge in less than 2.5 hours thanks to the onboard charger. In fact, you can even use the RYOBI Riding Mower app to check if the batteries are ready to go, for added convenience. You can also keep tabs on the charging status, as well as battery level, and runtime on the LCD screen that's on the mower itself. Other extra features we appreciate include LED lights, front and back storage compartments, two tow hitches, a hitch for RYOBI-compatible attachments, cup holders, and 2 USB ports to charge your phone.

Aside from the power and features this tractor provides, it will leave your lawn looking great. This riding tractor has four steel blades with 13 different cutting height positions to choose from (within 1.5 to 4.5 inches), so you can really fine-tune the look of your lawn. You also have three options for grass clippings: bag, side discharge, or mulch (although the bagger and mulching kit are sold separately). This is a powerful, feature-packed riding lawn tractor so it comes at a bigger price tag than other picks. If you don't need all of these features, you may want to choose a more budget-friendly model. However, we think if you are looking for a great electric riding mower with all of the features and power you need, this is your best bet.
