Zero turn lawn mowers are priced higher than lawn tractors because they have greater value. With robust components like thick, fully welded steel tubular frames, options for fully fabricated steel decks (stronger than thin, stamped steel decks on lawn tractors), a zero turn mower lasts longer than a garden tractor. It’s not an expense, it’s an investment.
Enhanced user experience, premium features and superior cut quality technology is why a zero turn mower has such high value. Comfort in plush seats, armrests and ergonomic positioning of the controls is worth it for homeowners who spend hours cutting grass. Features like deck adjustment ability, modern styling, cup holders and storage areas are also big sells to some homeowners. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.
