  • Push mower Drive system

    looking to get a new push mower this year. Currently have a front wheel drive. I was wondering if anyone has tried the RWD or AWD. which type of drive does everyone like?

    Rear wheel is the best because the weight is on the drive wheels. Fwd and awd are good for cars not mowers

        rear wheel is better for the fact you can tip it up keep going, turn or cut high grass. All my hondas have fwd but sometimes I miss rwd.

          The best system is the old snapper push mowers, I personally have one from the 1970s that still works great. Nice heavy mower, the wheels had bearings in them I got it when I did commercial mowing.

            I've never heard of all wheel drive on a push mower... that would seem very expensive and make the mower very heavy.

            I like fwd because it is much better for going up hills. That's about the only advantage I can think of...but it's a pretty big advantage.

            If you get rwd, try to find one with a gear drive set up. Much more durable. My dad has one of the older 5hp Hondas with RWD gear drive...it will literally pull you away.

                  Yeah that belt will last long.... I would make sure I got a few spares and a few pulleys, way to much belt under the mower for it to work well.

                  I did find the next video I clicked on intresting. After searching I found a lot more reviews just like it on the new hybrid mower That is why I do not sell junk that was made in china.

                    Or maybe even those operated with cheap labor
