Do any of you have any experience with ZTR(Zero Turning Radius) mowers? If so what kind do you have or know about, Good and Bad points. I'm considering buying one and would like to hear some stories of hands on experience.

Gary, I mow for a living. We use a Toro ZMaster and a Scag Turf Tiger. Scag is way more comfortable doing hills and gets better traction all around. Incredible amount of time saved using them. Probably be real happy with any of them.

They are the best thing that happened to mowers since Briggs & Stratton! The only down side is that after a long time mowing, my back gets to hurting pretty bad from the quickness of the turning and the seat isn't the most comfortable either.

I just got a Toro Z Master 44 inch cut. It has a 18 hp Kohler engine. I just realized that it is a single cylinder. I thought I was buying a twin cylinder. I am using it for my own lawn which is about 2.5 acres. Do you think that it matters that much if it is sigle or twin cylinders?? It is the commander Pro model with OHV desighn. I am disappointed to learn it is only a single cyl. but maybe it don't matter that much...what is you opinion...thanks

Friend bought a Dixon at a rummage for 60 bucks, deck had holes wore thru. Braized up the deck with old appliance steel, and then did a tune up and oil change. Jumped started it and it mowed great. He had to put a new front tire on but just my time and his gas for brazing. I did mow with it a few days afterwards and started out in a open area to get the feel for the steering. After a couple of rounds ya can mow with the best of em. He also has a grizzly mower that is on the same principle but is built much heavier than the dixon. He really likes em. Pretty simple to work on.
