Many riders now come with a tighter turning radius, unfortunately they also dig up the grass with the front tires.

All I can say is that last year we purchased a riding mower, 39" deck. For three years I used a push mower and it was horrible. Spending roughly 3 hours mowing the lawn on the weekend doing a death march back and forth was not fun at all. Riding mower for the back yard made all the difference in the world and cut the time down to 1hr for the whole thing. Still use the push mower on the front yard as the slope is too much for the riding one.

As for mulching/bagging, that's up to you. Personally I'd rather leave the cut grass on the lawn to keep moisture in.

It is important to choose a lawn mower, which has parts. I would advise to check availability of spare parts here [url]www.lawnmowerpros.com[/url]. Very often, because of the lack of spare parts have to buy a new lawn mower.

You can have Yard Machines 159cc mower. It is a great little self-propelled gas lawn mower. With this mower, you can easily mow the grass. Set up and operations are extremely simple. It accommodates small to medium size yards with front wheel drive and one single forward speed to power through your outdoor yard tasks. The best thing is that it not that expensive.

I had a Toro and a Lawnboy. Both were good until carb issues. Now I have a Honda. It has been the best. I also only fuel with non-ethanol gas for all of my small engines. Toro has 30” push mower. Thought about getting that one for 1k.

Side note: I have a zero turn which is an awesome machine. The only issue is with converting from mulch to bagger. Major pain. I have left the bagger on now for some time, but I miss mulching during the hot summer.
