Husqvarna - Rider 155
If you’re looking for a zero turn riding mower but don't want the hassles and maintenance expense of a hydraulic system then this mower could fill the bill.
The mid-body articulating steering system allows for a turning radius of only 4" and the front mounted mower deck is easy to see and maneuver under and around landscape foliage and lawn furniture. Five easy controls operate forward, reverse, stop, mower deck engagement, and blade height adjustment. Hydrostatic transmission means NO gear shift required.
Mower is available in either 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive. I think my next one will be the 4 wheel drive version. Mower deck has 2 horizontally fixed anti scalping wheels that slide across the turf during turns.
Other countries get the design that pivot and rotate on a vertical axis much like zero turn models available in the USA. A deck height range of 2 - 5 inches would be better than the 1.6 – 3.5 inches available. As with the anti scalping wheel the mower deck options are greatly increased in other countries. The CombiClip® cutting deck comes ready to rear discharge or to BioClip® (mulch).
A highly rated and value adding feature is the ease in which blade and deck maintenance can be performed. By removing one cover, one pin and disengaging one belt the deck can be rolled on supplied wheels to an upright position making blade removal and deck cleaning an easy chore.Pros
