What Are the Top Brands for Riding Lawn Mowers?

The top brands for riding lawn motors include Craftsman, Husqvarna, John Deere, and Snapper and Simplicity products associated with engine manufacturer Briggs & Stratton, according to Consumer Reports. Craftsman products also overlap with other companies, as Craftsman mowers are typically manufactured by Husqvarna and include a Briggs & Stratton engine.

While traditional riding mowers were steered with the front wheels, as of 2015, riding mowers use rear-wheel steering for increased accuracy and efficiency, explains Popular Mechanics. These machines are known as zero-turn lawn mowers. Popular Mechanics ranks Husqvarna riding mowers as the top zero-turn products as of 2014 for their comfort, ease of use and low noise level. Simplicity, Craftsman and Arien zero-turn riding mowers also ranked highly.
