What Size Tractor Mower Should I Get?

We want to help you select the right size tractor mower.

If you do not understand these tips, strategies, or processes, please consult your local dealer or mechanic. And as always, be sure to consult your owner’s manual for model-specific information.

Let’s get to it.

There are 3 factors you need to consider when purchasing a tractor mower...

  • Type

  • Size

  • Weight


You need to decide what type of mower you need --- a finish or rough cut/brush.

A finish mower will leave a smooth cut look.

It has 3 smaller blades that spin very fast. The blades are very delicate. This means they are not very good for areas loaded with rocks, sticks, and stumps.

The rough cut mower (aka brush mower) has one heavy blade. This mower is great for mowing areas loaded with debris and trash. It does not leave a great finish.

Rough cut mowers can mow branches over 1" in diameter without any damage.
