Big yards come with big responsibilities. You may be eager to keep putting off mowing till the next week, but your yard may suffer the consequences. Routine mowing helps to combat pests and keep grass growing evenly. And who doesn’t want a yard they can build memories in?

But which lawnmower is right for you? No two yards are the same- that’s why we work to make sure you take home the mower that fits your yard and budget. In this buyer’s guide, let’s take a closer look at how to find the perfect lawn mower in the Mississippi Delta.

What to Consider When Choosing a Mower

Yard Layout

One of the most important aspects to consider when buying a lawnmower is the layout of your lawn. How many acres do you have? Are there many trees and flower beds that will have to be maneuvered around? Is your land flat or hilly? Will you want to use different attachments to accomplish jobs beyond mowing? Different mowers meet different needs so it’s important to find a mower that best matches your lawn type by first answering these questions. 

Additional Features

At Wade Incorporated, our lawnmower selection offers a wide range of features and capabilities. From basic, more affordable models to high-efficiency mowers with plenty of bells and whistles, you can decide which features you want to be included. Features like MulchControl Kit compatibilityEasyChange 30-Second Oil System, LCD fuel indicator screens, 4-wheel steering, and Traction Assist are all available on certain models.


The features and amount of power you need will ultimately lead to the price of your mower, so it’s important to find a balance between your needs and budget. We offer a wide range of mowers with varying prices and features to ensure you have enough options to choose from. With core functionality and minimal features, our 100 and 200 Series Lawn Tractors are the cheapest mowers available on our lot.

Which lawnmower is right for you?

Between our John Deere Lawn Tractors and ZTrak Zero-Turns, it’s hard to go wrong. Both mowers offer a high-quality cut, reliable parts, and a comfortable operating experience. But which one is the best fit for you?

Lawn Tractors

With a mid-mounted cutting deck, lawn tractors deliver consistent cuts and a thorough operation. A steering wheel and intuitive foot pedals are included to make lawn tractors easy to operate. 

Because of their front-wheel drive, lawn tractors are a safer choice for taking on light hills and slopes under 15 degrees. 

With a wider choice of attachments available, our John Deere Lawn Tractors can be used year-round for different jobs around the yard. Compatible utility carts, shovels, hitches, and rakes deliver the extra versatility needed to go beyond just mowing. Who is a lawn tractor for?: large, hilly lawn owners who want to accomplish year-round jobs.

Zero Turn Mowers

Unlike lawn tractors, zero-turn mowers are built with a mowing deck in the front and an engine in the back. This helps reach tight spaces and tough-to-mow corners. 

Just like the name suggests, this steering system gives the zero-turn mower the ability to make zero-degree turns without moving forward. This makes the zero turn mower a great choice for maneuvering around obstacles and alongside flowerbeds in your yard. 

At 10 mph, the John Deere ZTrak Zero-Turns can reach faster speeds at even greater accuracy. Who is a zero-turn for?: owners with large, flat lawns with curvy flower beds and scattered trees.

Still not sure which lawnmower is right for you? With 5 different lawn tractor and 3 different zero-turn series available, we know it can be a hard choice. Our team at Wade Inc. is ready to help.
