A small, 1/2-acre lawn is suited to a deck size of 40 inches or fewer. If your lawn is 1/2 to 2 acres, then a riding mower with a deck that is 42 to 48 inches wide would be appropriate. If the lawn is 3 acres or larger, the deck should be at least 50 inches wide.
Horsepower. The amount of horsepower you need depends on the width of the cutting deck. For lawn mowers with up to a 42-inch cutting deck, look for at least a 14-hp engine to adequately power the deck and the drive wheels. For a 42- to 46-inch cutting deck, a 14- to 16-hp engine will be ideal.
Builders suggest a standard deck size and an allowance of anywhere from 20 to 24 square feet per person, so a deck designed for ten people would need to be at least 240 square feet in size. Consider planning for a 12 ft by 12 ft deck to start and adjust size and dimensions from that point.

So, fitting any engine to a different deck is simple. While all engines are changeable, not all mower decks are. The easiest swap is to find a replacement mower deck that matches your old deck or to find a perfect used mower (with a deck of the same type) with a blown engine and change over your good motor.
A key difference between a tractor and a ride-on mower is the position of the cutting blades, which on garden tractors are located at the centre of the machine. This makes them very effective for cutting large gardens or areas of open land and around wider objects like trees and bushes.
Look for a mower with at least 14-16 hp and a wide mowing deck – at least 38 inches – to get your lawn work done quickly. Yards larger than three acres are best handled by a larger zero-turn rider or a garden tractor. Look for models that have at least 18hp engines and mowing decks in the 44-54 inch range.
