A zero turn lawn mower is a riding lawn mower with a zero-degree turning radius. It's operated by two steering levers instead of a steering wheel that allow the mower to make 180-degree turns on a dime.
The ability to quickly make 180-degree turns is one reason why a zero turn mower is the choice of landscape professionals. However, zero turn technology has also been built into lawn mowers for homeowners and their budgets. With growing popularity, more residential users are leaving inefficient, slow and cheap riding lawn tractors for the numerous benefits of a zero turn lawn mower.
