trust me, by the time the snow flies, you will think it's a chore. Like getting a new car, once the newness wears off, it's the same old stuff.
Exactly. Like shaving.

But I do remember getting excited again for mowing season to start back up, my first few years with a zero turn. That’s all wore off now, but I still find it enjoyable compared to the other methods available.

The purpose of this purchase was it allow others to easily mow our yard. Have less maintenance and do a reasonably good job. If the machine lasts 8 or 10 years I'll be happy.

Kinda funny, but each time I get on my machine to do a chore I get a little smile. I really enjoy it. Never gets old.

On that note, I don't shave very often either. Maybe once a month. I smile when I do that, too. 😁

Just mowed the whole yard running the blades at 3/4 speed. Got down to 20% of batteries when done.
Is that from a full charge on four or six batteries?

And you said 100’x300’ lot? Under 3/4 acre?

The batteries in the mower get fully charged at the start of mowing. Two batteries we use are not full capacity. Our property is that size but contains three buildings in it, so maybe 1/3 of the volume could be removed (just a guess)

I did reduce the rear tires down to 6 or 7psi and front to 11.
This can soften the ride, but also usually impacts height consistency. Maybe not a huge concern for some, but it's real hard to get that golf-course look when your mower deck is dipping in every turn and hard start/stop.

My mower (Deere 757 Ztrak) is almost legendary for it's terrible stiff ride. I'm able to battle much of that with the seat suspension, which isn't fantastic, but also not totally terrible when adjusted just right. I did try the tire game, but found goofy dips in each turn-around, unless I was absolutely religious about lifting the deck in every turn... and even then some. Also, no way to get away with a single perimeter pass, if you're having to lift the deck in the turn-arounds, you're stuck doing two full passes every time.

Just kidding. Glad you're liking it. (y)

Our yard is hills, lumps and holes. Need traction.
