40 hours in and loving the zt3 60
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this mower to reduce the hours on my equipment. My 46 inch mower had 435 hours in only 3 mowing seasons. I'm on track to finish this. One with about 75 hours, meaning I've cut the wear and tear in half. My son will use the old one on a smaller property. No complaints of any kind. Mulches well, discharges well, rides great. The front shocks are adjustable... Do that.

    Ehh
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have mowed with this 3 times and the nuts keep falling off the front of the mower deck, Spending a large amount on a mower you would think something as annoying like this would not happen.

      Smooth, reliable, and easy on the back.
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Smooth, reliable, and not only easy to use but also easy on your back. Turns on a dime without tearing out your lawn. Only issue i habe found with it so far is the built in deck washing system does not perform all that well.

      So far, the ride, cut, and fuel economy is night and day better than my smaller zero turn. Not even close.

        Great mower
        This is the first zero turn I have bought for myself. I have used many in the past just never bought one until now. I have 12.5 acres and now about 6.5 acres of it. This mower does great! The headlights are a great touch! The deck height adjustment is easy and convenient. The best part of it all (well there’s two) 1) the seat is extremely comfortable the entire time I mow! 2) the suspension on the front is a game changer! It is adjustable for the stiffness and really smooths our the ride in the pasture. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

          It's great!
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've only had this mower for less than two months but it's such a dramatic improvement over my old mower. I can get much closer to trees, bushes, decks, etc. than before, it's nearly effortless to steer and so much faster. I am very pleased with it. The only minor negative is that there isn't a fuel gauge but I'll give that up over the advantages.

            Very Pleased - everything as I hoped & expected
            I purchased the mower 2 months ago and mowed about 7-8 times. The cut quality is excellent and the ride is very good. I have. 1.5 acres and thought the 60” was to much, it isn’t. The cut time is about 40-45 minutes. I recommend and would buy again!

              Great Zero turn
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my first zero turn, and so far I’m very satisfied with the performance of my ZT3 60”. I’ve used it 5 times so far, and it has performed flawlessly. It makes mowing a welcomed pleasure.

                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really enjoy this mower, the seat is comfortable and the ride is very smooth. It is very easy to change the height of the deck. The headlights are a nice touch! All around I am glad that I purchased this mower!
