Top 5 Best Selling Self Propelled Mowers

My top selling list, updated yearly, contains Lowes best value walk self propelled mowers.  Discover the best self propelled mowers at Lowes.

Who defines the “Best”?  Of course, I do!

Best means different things to different people. Some folks are looking for best-selling mowers, while others seek top-rated models.  Some people even think best and cheapest go hand in hand! Hint: they don’t!

For me the best mowers are easy to handle, safe to use and are a great value. They should be easy to start, low maintenance and keep your lawn looking good. As a lawn and garden manager at Lowes, I’ve sold hundreds of mowers through the years and have seen them all-good, bad and somewhere in between.

Pushing a lawn mower around all day can get tiring. You might consider investing in a self-propelled version. Stick with a basic push mower for a small, flat yard or say less than 5000 square feet (about 60 x 90). 

Most self propelled units will set you back another $80-150 compared to a push mower. But for larger yards the extra cost is worth getting a self propelled. You will be amazed at how much easier and faster it is.

Add in features like variable speed, electric start and easier maneuverability and you will soon be wondering how you did without one for so long.
