Price comparison

General info

1.Is self-propelled
Ariens Zoom 42
A self-propelled lawn mower requires less effort from the user, as you don’t have to manually push it forward.
2.Has side discharge
Ariens Zoom 42
The mower can discharge the cut grass to the side. The cut grass helps to fertilise the lawn and helps preserve moisture in the summer, and means that you do not have to empty a grass bag/box. However, this is not as effective as a mulching lawn mower.
3.Is cordless
Ariens Zoom 42
Cordless tools/machines are suited to a variety of different situations, as you are not limited to only working in places with power sources nearby.
4.Is a riding lawn mower
Ariens Zoom 42
A riding lawn mower is suitable for larger areas, and allows you to finish mowing much faster. It is also useful if you have health problems as you don’t need to walk or push a lawn mower.
5.fuel tank capacity

7.6l

A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.
6.Has a steel deck
Ariens Zoom 42
A steel deck’s main advantage is that it is durable, and if you hit a stone it will only make a dent rather than fracturing.

Cut quality

1.maximum cutting height

114mm

A higher cutting height is needed when your lawn doesn’t have optimum conditions, for example when there is extreme heat or cold, as a longer leaf allows it to stay healthy.
2. wider cutting width

107cm

With a wider cutting width you will have to make less passes when mowing your lawn, reducing the time it takes. This is especially important if you have a large lawn.
3.number of cutting height settings

3

A higher number of cutting height settings give you more versatility to choose the optimum length for your lawn, based on prevailing conditions.
4.Has mulching feature
Ariens Zoom 42
With a mulching feature the grass cuttings are further cut into finely chopped grass which is then expelled onto the lawn, fertilising it and making it more drought resistant. This also means you do not have to empty a grass bag/box.
5.cutting height ratio

3

The cutting height ratio indicates the ratio between the minimum and maximum cutting heights, providing more versatility when choosing the optimum cutting length for your lawn.
6.minimum cutting height

38mm

A lower minimum cutting height is an advantage if you prefer a shorter grass length for your lawn. However, shorter grass requires good weather conditions to stay lush and green, such as warm weather and moderate sunlight.

Performance

1.Has an overhead valve engine
Ariens Zoom 42
An overhead valve (OHV) engine is usually found in high-end models, and provides more power and fuel economy than a side valve design.
2.engine size

0.7l

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
3. faster reverse speed

5km/h

A faster reverse speed makes it quicker to turn around and manoeuvre.
4.horsepower

20hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.number of cylinders

2

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.

Features

1.Has variable speed
Ariens Zoom 42
A lawn mower with variable speed is beneficial because you may wish to slow down or speed up based on the area you are mowing, for example going slower when making tight turns around a tree.
