Yard Man Products

The Yard Man builds typical Walk Behind Mowers. These Walk Behind mowers come in Push Mower – like 11A-A18M055 and 11A-A24T055 - and Self Propelled mower flavors.

The self propelled can be Rear Wheel Drive – like 12A-18M7002 and 12AE18JA002 – Front Wheel Drive – like 12A-569Q001 and 12AE46JA001.

These mowers are ideal for a lawn space of around an acre or less. They can get the job done easily with minimal hassles. These models come with Mulching, bagging and discharge options. Some are 2 in 1 while others support all 3 features. You can purchase them at Walmart store.

White Outdoor Products

The White Outdoor products are primarily targeted towards the rugged and tough rural life. Their products are designed to sustain the grinds of the rural outdoors to ensure that you can savor a great lawn in your house – no matter where it is.

You have a wide range of push mowers, self propelled mowers and even riding mowers from White Outdoor. These are great aids not just for mowing, but also for host of other chores that a rural life brings with it.

MTD Yard Machines Mower

The Yard Machines has the widest range of push mowers under the MTD brand.

The models range from basic push mower with plain side discharge to 2 in 1 or 3 in 1 models that also bag and mulch the grass.

The Yard Machines lawn mowers come in two designs: push mowers and self propelled.

Like most other manufacturers, the self propelled models can have front wheel drive or rear wheel drive. While the rear wheel drive gives you more control in the motion, the front wheel gives you more maneuverability.
