In other words, you can turn completely around while riding a zero-turn mower in the same position. Other riding mowers require you to arch the mower around to make turns. With a zero-turn mower, however, you can simply turn in place. If you find yourself in a tight position against a fence or treeline, a zero-turn mower allows you to turn completely around without moving or taking up additional space. As a result, it's a highly effective type of mower for large and complex landscapes.
Although they sound like a new invention, zero-turn mowers have been around for a half-century. According to Wikipedia, the world's first true zero-turn mower was invented by American entrepreneur Max Swisher in 1949. Swisher developed a lawnmower called the "Ride King," which was capable of turning with a zero-degree radius. Swisher's invention featured three wheels: There was one wheel in the front and the other two in the back. Based on this three-wheel design, Swisher was able to achieve a zero-degree turning radius with his new riding lawnmower.
Today, there are dozens of zero-degree mowers on the market. While features vary between the different models, they are all capable of performing turns with a zero-degree radius. This makes them able to cut grass extremely close to objects like fences, trees, sidewalks and more. Zero-turn mowers generally cost more than conventional riding mowers. For landscaping professionals and owners of large property, though, they are typically worth the investment
