An important thing to consider when looking at lawn mowers is the price. Not everyone can drop a few thousand dollars on lawn equipment, but you also want to make sure you're getting the most for your investment. Financing options are often available for most mowers, and better-equipped mowers often pay for themselves in the end.

Different Prices, Different Mowers

If you have a tiny lawn that doesn't need to be mowed often, you probably don't need to invest much in a mower. You can get a small push mower for under $150 at most garden centers. A mower for this price is generally little more than engine and blades, though, and you need to rake up after it. For a top-of-the-line push mower, a fair price tag is usually between $400 and $500.

When looking at riding mowers for the home, your price range will largely determine your features. A no-frills riding mower will start at about $900, but will have minimal safety features and other utility equipment. Nicer home mowers rise in price up to around $3,000. The most maneuverable mowers are in this class, and can rotate with a zero degree turn radius.

Commercial mowers are much more expensive than home mowers, but for good reason. They have larger bodies and parts, and are made to handle much more wear and tear than a home mower. Commercial mowers cost between $5,000 and $13,000--depending mostly on size, engine strength, and optional features.
