flower Posted March 20, 2007 Share Posted March 20, 2007 Hi to all,I have just purchased a place with about 4000m2 of garden, well, actually, it's more like 'land' as it used to be full of cows and isn't exactly snooker table smooth and has slight slope. But apart from that it's lovely....anyway, I digress. I'm looking to buy a ride-on mower but cannot decide on what I really need. I realise people will say bigger is better (hp & cutting deck) but I'd be grateful for opinions on what is realistically required. Will a 15.5hp machine do, or do I need more power? I guess I'd like as big a cutting deck as possible but am a bit confused as to how much power I really need. The budget needs to cover many things with the mower being just one of them. If I could spend euros 2000 as opposed to euros 3000 then that would be good....even less is better but I realise that may be optimistic.I was looking at a rear collecting mower and so if anyone has any suggestions as to what they would go for then I'd love to hear about it. I've seen a model in Mr Bricolage for euros 2,799 with a 20hp briggs & stratton engine and a 105cm deck, but wonder if I really need that much hp? Thanks.
