Commercial Lawn Equipment: Not Just for Professional Landscapers

by Jeffrey Anderson, All About Lawns Columnist

Do you spend a lot of time and effort trying to make your large lawn look its best, but always seem to notice other, better lawns where the mowing efforts really stand out? Do those lawns look professionally mowed and landscaped?

Professional landscapers always seem to do a nice job when they roll in and perform weekly maintenance on a yard. The lawn doesn't look mowed, it looks manicured--yet they don't seem to do anything differently than you do to your lawn every week. The difference may not be who is doing the mowing, it might be the commercial lawn equipment they are using.

Commercial Lawn Equipment Can Take Your Lawn to the Next Level

Professionals use commercial lawn equipment because it is designed and built for constant heavy use, and it must adhere to strict safety guidelines to qualify for ANSI Certification. But they also use commercial lawn equipment because it is efficient and makes them, and the lawns, look quite good.

Residential lawn equipment can do a good job, but commercial lawn equipment can take your yard to the next level. Here are a few areas where commercial lawn equipment can outperform residential equipment:

  • Durability. Commercial lawn equipment is designed to be used on a daily basis for hours at a time.
  • Comfort. Professional landscapers spend a lot of time sitting on their equipment, so it must be built with comfort in mind.
  • Clean-cutting. Commercial lawn equipment uses more expensive technology for their mowing decks.
  • Speed. Commercial mowers often have more powerful motors and wider mowing decks than those on residential machines.
  • Safety. It is constructed to be operated in tough conditions.

If you're ready to bring your yard up a notch, check out commercial lawn equipment from Deere, Toro, Exmark, and the many other companies that professional landscape contractors use.
