Mowing is a time suck. A ride-on is the easiest way to take back your weekend

While some still debate the merits of mowing your lawn, or paying someone to do it for you, of this we are certain: No one has ever wished it took longer to mow. But also, if you were riding a mower you’d be smiling at least a little. Suburbanites may look at ride-on and tractor lawn mowers as the stuff of farms. But forget the looks. If you can dedicate the storage space in a shed or garage—about 49 x 66 inches—then it’s all a numbers game.

A ride-on mower cuts a 42-inch-wide swath in a single pass. That’s twice as much as most push-mowers. That means you get done in half the time. That’s great any time of year, but with a new NFL season starting, and MLB playoffs, fall is the perfect time to reclaim your weekend. And now they’re fully battery-powered, which means no messing around with pull starters, no oil changes, no filters, or gas cans. If you’ve got a ¼ care or more of lawn, you’re a prime candidate for a ride-on mower.
