Best ZTR Mower I've ever used. Posted by Chase Jenkins on 03/15/2010

When I bought this Mower the first thing that stood out to me was how much "heavier-duty" it was than any other mower I had looked at or owned in the past. Mow with the strength come quite a bit of weight, however I thought it was a good trade off, you just have to be a little more careful when the ground is wet. I also love the transmission in this machine. It actually has a hydrostat trans. rather than a just two hydraulic pumps, which makes it a little less "touchy" for those less-experienced operators. Another excellent feature is the 31 hp Kubota diesel engine. It provides more than enough torque to cut through even the highest, wettest grass if it had to. The only thing about this mower I would change is the lift, you actually have to "jack it up" rather than just pull out a "lifting arm" and drive forward. It's just more time consuming, and time is money. Also, compared to mowers I've owned in the past it is much harder to get clean because it has so many cracks and crevices where grass can get down in, but again not that big of a deal. I would recommend this mower to anyone with a large space to mow.
