Considerations When Buying a Garden Tractor
Always look at a selection of garden tractors for sale to find the right one for your needs. This type of equipment might be one of the most expensive pieces of equipment you buy to maintain your lawn. When looking at used garden tractors for sale, it is important to understand what choices are out there before investing in a new or used garden tractor. The first consideration is whether your lawn is large enough. A tractor might be a good idea of any lawn that is over 2,000 square metres or half an acre. Another consideration is whether a cutting deck is needed. Typically, wide deck sizes on a garden tractor will allow for quicker operation. If you have a smaller lawn, a tractor deck size of up to 42 inches or 116 centimetres should meet your needs. For larger lawns, consider buying a tractor with a cutting deck that is larger. Tractors also have a range of additional features, including aerators to move debris and hooks that allow you to tow cards with equipment and supplies. For low emission options that are gentler on the environment, overhead valve engines are also available.
Manual versus Automatic Transmission

Automatic transmission garden tractors are easier to operated, allowing you to almost put the machine on cruise control to mow the lawn quickly and virtually effortlessly.

There are also Shift-On-The-Go transmission garden tractors where operators can change forward speeds without stopping, although a clutch is not used.
