Cub’s 3 Types of Tractor Lawn Mower

Cub made its name for its range of zero-turn tractors. Zero-turn tractors are a higher-end range that enables far more manoeuvrability and reduced turf damage. They require a lot more skill and attention when used as they’re less stable on inclines.types of tractor lawn mower The Cub XZ2 and XZ3 range are great for larger areas that require a flawless cut for larger areas. The ‘Gold Standard’ in Professional-level tractor lawn mowers is the Cub Cadet Z5. This is a beat, with a 1.5m cutting area. Compare this with Stihl’s 1.25, and you can see how this would make a difference over a large field.

Cub also provides two other types of tractor lawn mowers. The second is its range of side discharge tractor mowers. As you’d expect, these expel mulch to the side of the vehicle as it cuts. These are good for situations when you don’t need a perfectly tidy lawn or field; these models leave clippings behind on the green. These allow for much faster cutting times as you do away with the need to pause the work in order to empty a full grass box.

Compare these with the direct collect models which, again as you’d expect, drive the grass directly into a grass box fixed to the back in order to allow mulch collection and keep your lawn or field nice and tidy. The disadvantage to this is that you’re going to have vastly slower cutting times you as must make repeat stops to empty the full grass box.

Stihl Has One Main Type of Tractor Lawn Mower

While Cub has a range of side-discharge models and a separate range of direct collect models, Stihl has a different setup and chooses to go with direct collect as standard. It also features a tow hitch so that you can use your tractor for towing larger trailers and other equipment.
