    My First Zero Turn
    I purchased my first zero turn after many years of owning a lawn tractor. The 42 inch ZT1 is a awesome performing mower. It handles well, cuts great with the mulch blades and mulch plug installed. Easy to start. This mower makes cutting grass a pleasure instead of a weekly chore.

        Very Impressed
        I bought this mower in March and have not been disappointed. The quality is second to none; it doesn't feel cheap. Once you use it, you can tell it is a solid mower. It runs very well and cuts my grass without clumps - which is huge to me. The attached picture is my yard to the left, and the neighbor's to the right. He has another brand of zero turn. You can obviously see the difference in the cuts - clumps vs. no clumps. I will also say I have yet to experience this mower bogging down. We had about a two-week rain spell in late spring and a single day before another rain spell started. Needless to say, my grass got SO TALL and was extremely wet! I figured the mower was going to get extremely bogged down and clump up the grass. Neither happened! I told my coworkers several times that I constantly look down at the chute to make sure I have the blade on because it's so smooth and powerful. I am very pleased with my purchase and have no doubt this mower will last for years.

          Great mower. Fairly easy to set up, you will need some tools and patience. Operates smoothly with little effort. I have advanced arthritis throughout my body, but I still enjoy being outside, cutting grass. I was having trouble with steering a conventional rider. This mower allows me to still feel active and stay in the driver's seat. The mower could use arm rests on the seat making it even easier and more comfortable than it is to operate. I would also recommend the sliding seat for this model, just make it a little nicer. I am sore after cutting, but I am sore just sitting around. Might as well have some fun:-) This is!!!!! Heavily constructed and well made. Rolls easily for tight storage. I have mowed twice on 2 gallons of gas, 1/4 acre yard. I am well pleased with my purchase.
