Zero Turn Mowers
For the discerning lawn enthusiast, nothing beats a Rover Zero Turn Mower for precision mowing done with effortless ease and efficiency. For that perfect finish, Zero Turn mowers cut right up to the edge, regardless of trees or irregularly shaped garden beds.
Comfort & Control
With ample legroom and a relaxed seating position, a Rover Zero-Turn mower makes mowing lawns of all sizes a pleasure. Intuitive and easy to operate, with a wide high-back comfort seat and cup holder, you can cut in comfort all day. Zero-Turns are the perfect choice for large or irregularly shaped blocks, and blocks with many trees or other obstacles. The "zero" turning radius, means no more overshooting or 3 point turns, and greater productivity compared to a similarly sized tractor style ride on mower.
Safe 4 Wheel Steering
At Rover, your safety is our top priority. Our patented SynchroSteer™ (Steering Wheel) equipped Zero Turn Lawn Mowers offer exceptional traction and control over all four wheels to ensure your mower doesn't slip, slide or tear up turf, especially in hilly and slippery conditions. SynchroSteer™ models offer superior manoeuvrability and handling and are capable of mowing safely on slopes up to 20°.
Rover's residential Zero Turn Mowers deliver professional results when cutting lawns of all shapes and sizes. Cover ground quickly and completely with the help of the Zero turn's wide cutting deck, high cutting speed, and its ability to turn on the spot.

1. What is a zero turn mower?
A Zero-Turn riding lawn mower is a type of ride on mower with a virtually zero turning radius. The ability to turn on the spot is achieved because each back wheel turns independently, allowing the operator to turn 180 degrees on the spot and head back the other way.
Z-Turns are more manoeuvrable than standard lawn tractors, which require a turning circle allowance, making them more efficient and providing a more uniform cut as there is no doubling up or running over the same spot twice.
2. I have lawn trees and irregularly shaped garden beds; which mower should I choose?
Depending on how closely your lawn trees are planted, you may be able to get around these obstacles on a standard ride-on mower. However, to mow right up to the base of trees and the edge of garden beds without having to make 3-point turns, your best option is a zero-turn mower. Even on straightforward flat lawns, because a zero turn mower turns on the spot at the end of a row, they are also significantly faster.
3. Which sized cutting deck do I need?
Rover Zero Turn cutting decks are available in 42-inch or 46-inch, depending on the size of your property and your budget.
The larger the deck, the less time you will spend mowing as each pass will cut a wider section of grass. If you have a smaller property or have obstacles requiring mowing around, a smaller deck may be better.
4. Do Zero turn mowers have a hydrostatic transmission?
Rover zero turn mowers feature not one but two hydrostatic transmissions, one for controlling each rear wheel. These work independently of each other, for example sending the left wheel backwards and the right wheel forwards will result in a zero radius left hand turn. These independent transmissions and zero turning radius are what gives zero turn mowers their name.
5. What fuel do I use in my mower?
Rover recommends standard unleaded petrol with less than 10% ethanol content. IMPORTANT! Fuel with more than 10% ethanol content, such as E15 (15% ethanol), is NOT recommended.
