This unit features a rear-wheel drive system to provide better traction in a variety of cutting conditions. While a front wheel drive system is preffered for flat, complex yards which require a lot of turning, a rear drive mower is suitable for those who need the extra power to handle yards with lots of hills and obstacles.
