Front wheel drive vs. rear wheel drive
Hi a new member here and this is my first post.
I am in a market for a new lawn mower. I am a little torn between a Toro 20017 (personal pace, rear wheel drive) and a Toro 20016 (front wheel drive).
I had never used a rear wheel drive before. When I used my old lawn mower, to change directions, I would push the handle bar down. That would raise the front wheels and allows me to change direction with the rear wheels on the ground.
But how do you do that with a rear wheel drive?
Also, how do you change direction (like a 180 degree) or back out using a rear wheel drive?
And what is a personal pace feature? Is that the same thing as a rear wheel drive?
I personally don't see any adventage of a rear wheel drive. But since it tends to cost more, there must be some. What are the adventages of a rear wheel drive lawn mower?
thanks in advance for any help
