This mower is unstoppable! Cuts anything you can throw at it! The quality of machine at this price seems too good to be true. I waited 2 years to write this review. Mower has 700 hours on it now with absolutely ZERO breakdowns. This mower goes through tall grass , wet grass , whatever you throw at it. It's also very comfortable to operate. Couldn't ask for more out of a mower!

Had this mower now for 2 seasons and I am completely stratified with it, The only issue I had was the deck belt kept slipping off drive, discovered the belt guide must have bent after hitting something while cutting, I straightened it and solved the problem. Great mower for the price.

I do not know how they sell these mowers at this price. Delivered to my door and it was easy to get it uncrated and cutting. If you are expecting a wood framed mower on a pallet, no it comes encased in a steel frame cage which is easy to take apart. I have owned three 48" old Lesco hydro walk behinds with the old pistol grips so I have a learning curve with the T handle. I also have a 52" Ferris zero turn but this mower has more power. Deck is extremely beefy just like the old Lesco's but does not have all of the weight and crap of the new John Deer which had their's on sale for 6K$. This is very simple which I like. The blade speed is extremely fast. I still prefer the pistol grips but just have to retrain myself. Will most likely buy their one arm sulky and this would have no problem pulling it. Great mower - you better buy it before they realize it is under priced. Great service on the sale and delivery and answering my many questions.

Innovative Commercial Walk-Behind Mowers

Whether you operate a landscaping business or you have a large property that needs to be mowed, commercial lawn mowers and other power equipment make the job go much easier. This heavy-duty equipment delivers a professional result. The mowing gets done in less time, and you never have to sacrifice the quality of your results.

Bigger Is Better

When it comes to mowing a large property, a big walk-behind lawn mower is better. A bigger deck means more efficiency and a shorter time to job completion. While a standard residential lawn mower offers an 18- to 24-inch deck size, commercial walk-behind lawnmowers offer deck sizes ranging from 32 to 54 inches. This means fewer passes with the mower and a job that requires less time to complete. Even though they have a wider deck, these are zero-radius turn mowers.

Easier to Handle

Commercial walk-behind mowers are easy to handle. They feature steering that allows you to navigate around a variety of obstacles, including water features, pathways, trees and curved flower bed edges. If you need to mow hilly terrain or a steep slope, these mowers offer stability and consistent cutting on the uneven surface. Narrow footprints mean these mowers are easy to transport and store.

Increase Efficiency

A commercial walk-behind mower operates at a speed of up to six miles per hour. If you have a wide, open space to mow, this speed makes the process of mowing a large lawn a breeze. If you have a lot of lawns to mow, you will finish each job quickly without sacrificing the quality of your results. Their electric-start engines and easy maintenance requirements mean less downtime and more time getting your work done.

What Is the Difference Between Commercial and Residential Mowers?

Durability is the main difference when comparing residential and commercial lawn mowers. Commercial lawn mowers are ideal for large lawns ranging from two to five acres. On the other hand, residential lawn mowers are more useful for small yards.

The quality and type of a lawn mower also differ between the two categories. Commercial lawn mowers are made with more expensive, high-quality materials, making them last longer than residential mowers. Residential mowers can also last a while but they just might need more frequent maintenance.

Another key difference is the operation speed. The blade speed in commercial walk-behind mowers is higher than at-home lawn mowers. Commercial mowers cut grass at a peak speed, which reduces clumping and increases productivity. Also, these commercial units save time and can complete a bigger lawn more quickly.

Engine types are another key difference between the two types of mowers. Commercial mowers have a bigger engine than residential mowers. This makes commercial models more reliable for use without you worrying about needing to fix anything.

The price difference is a larger margin separating the two. Commercial mowers run in the thousands whereas residential mowers cost hundreds of dollars. This is because of several factors like the size of the decks, durability, engine type, and other features.

What Are the Best Applications for Commercial Walk-Behind Mowers?

Commercial machines are investments in keeping lawns tidy. They are ideal for maintaining bigger properties. But commercial walk-behind mowers can also come in handy for homeowners with many residential properties.

Walk-Behind Mower FAQs

How Do I Choose the Right Walk-Behind Mower for My Lawn?

Cost may be one of the most important factors. However, the mower needs to work well for your specific type of lawn, not one that only fits into your budget. 

Choose a mower that complements your lawn type and has fantastic reviews from other lawn-mowing aficionados. Additionally, as long as the mower is well-maintained, it’s likely to have a longer life span than one that’s not high quality.

How Often Should I Sharpen the Blades on My Walk-Behind Mower?

You should ideally sharpen the blades on your walk-behind mower every 25 hours. 

Can I Use a Walk-Behind Mower on Hilly Terrain?

It’s possible to use a walk-behind mower on hilly terrain. However, you need to take extra precautions while mowing, such as wearing footwear with excellent traction and not walking on wet grass, to avoid dangerous situations.

You should also consider how hilly the terrain is. If it’s too treacherous to use the walk-behind mower safely, you may want to hire professional landscapers.

How Can I Maintain My Walk-Behind Mower for Optimal Performance?

Sharpening the blades is one of the best ways to maintain your walk-behind mower.

What Safety Precautions Should I Take When Using a Walk-Behind Mower?

What you wear, who’s around and what you’re mowing are the three most important safety considerations. 

  • Wear proper clothing, such as jeans, work boots and safety goggles, while you’re mowing.
  • Avoid mowing over anything that’s not grass, such as gravel or branches.
  • Don’t mow when pets or other people are in the yard. Any random pieces, such as small rocks, can easily become dangerous flying projectiles if you accidentally mow over them.
