Here is a list of the 2016 Lawn Tractors over $1500.

If you are not sure what size a style of Tractor is best for you please START HERE

There are over 425 lawn tractors, residential zero-turns and landowner zero-turns available for you to pick from this year so I’ve broken them down into four lists.

2016 Lawn Tractors over $1500 (This List)
2016 Lawn Tractors under $1500
2016 Economy Residential Zero Turn Mowers (R-ZTR)
2016 Estate Zero Turn Mowers (L-ZTR)

Note 1: The retailers now use pricing optimization software and the price can go up or down in as little as 4 hours. Please see the retailer’s website or your local dealer for the current price.

Note 2: This list will give you a link if the item is available to buy from the comfort of your home and a link to my review. If you are uncomfortable buying through that link (I make a small commission) please visit the brand’s website to find other ways to purchase the item.

Note 3: It appears Home Depot will be carrying the Poulan Pro Lawn Tractors instead of Ariens for 2016. FYI, the Ariens and the Poulan Pro tractors are/were made by Husqvarna.

Note 4: This list is not updated completely as of March 1, 2016. There will be a few more tractors coming out in the next 6 weeks. I’ll update the list as they are available.

Lawn Tractors over $1500 includes Yard Tractors, Garden Tractors, and Estate Tractors. Yard Tractors generally have heavier frames and can handle snow removal BUT NOT ground engaging work. Garden Tractors historically by definition can perform ground engaging tasks like roto-tilling, moldboard plowing and driveway leveling but the brands have destroyed the term as we used it here in the U.S. For 2016 do not assume if it has big tires or is labeled a “garden tractor” it can handle ground engaging work. Ask me and I’ll guide you through the mess this has become. Estate Tractors have transmissions stronger than yard tractors and most garden tractors and can handle most jobs around your property. They are a “step down” from Compact Tractors but are all high quality (read expensive) machines and built for durability not selling price.
