​Then a zero turn is the mower for you!

There are a number of different attachments that add to the versatility of zero turn mowers.
 
Bag or Mulch Clippings - The most popular attachment is a bagging system that allows you to collect grass clippings. There are many bagger options available for zero turn mowers including two- and three-bucket designs. Ariens and Gravely offer powered and non-powered baggers. Powered baggers have a belt-driven powered blower that forces grass into the bags. Commercial-quality baggers dump from seat using a lever to tilt the collector so you don't have to get off machine to dump clippings.

Rear Attachments - Zero turn mowers can accommodate a variety of rear attachments, including a dump cart, spreader, plug aerator, lawn dethatcher, roller or sprayer.

Front Attachments - Some zero turn mowers can accommodate a front-mounted blade or even a snow blower or brush for clearing snow or debris.

Most attachments can be installed with the accompanying instructions, but it is generally recommended to have them installed by a professional power equipment dealer. Some zero turn mowers may require you to add a hitch for rear attachments while others may come standard with a hitch. In some cases, front attachments may require an adapter kit or weight kit. "Quick hitch" mechanisms may also be available for fast and easy changeover.
