    Default Re: Tractor or zero turn

    I was going to add my $2.00 worth: if price is no object, the Bobcat Toolcat with the 90" mower is wonderful. Mows fast, rides great, air conditioned cab so no bugs and dirt( I have mowed after church in my suit{is that a sin?}, mower is out front so you can see what you are destroying, has four wheel drive and steering, and the dump box eliminates the need for a Gator, has the front loader, easy hookup and detatch, has mostly eliminated my need for the tractor. Makes work seem like fun.

    Default Re: Tractor or zero turn

    This is the spot I just could not get comfortable with on the tractor. Where the large septic system ends and then goes steeply up the hill, I find that even with using the Gravely tractor, my front tires slip a bit. Not the backs though and I just took a little wider turns, sometimes unintentionally but no fighting gravity. I'm mowing with a 40 inch Gravely wing mower attached, and all that weight down low really seems to plant me on the hill.
