A Yardman riding mower with zero turn capability may be just what you need if you’re dealing with typical zero turn mower territory – large areas with plenty of trees, obstacles and tight spaces.
The Select is a Yardman mower that provides fast mowing time and a smooth, balanced cut thanks to its zero-turn architecture, a 42inch (106.7cm) twin blade cutting deck and its pivoting front axle.
The strong 21hp Intek Engine with XRD, made by Briggs & Stratton ensures enough power for working on areas up to and around 2 acres (8000m2).
