The first zero turn lawn mower was invented in the year 1962 by a guy named John Regier.

John Regier was the original inventor of the Hustler 36, which is a 36-inch zero turn lawn mower.

That was the first zero turn lawn mower which then led way to more manufacturing and development of the zero turn lawn mower.

In the year 1964, the company Excel Industries became the first manufacturer of zero-turn mowers in the world.

It's a wonderful invention and after you buy and use a zero turn lawn mower it's likely you won't want to go back to a conventional lawn mower.

You can get around objects really easy with the zero turn lawn mower because you can turn the zero turn lawn mower around on a dime.
