just wondering why alot of people are using the walk behind instead of a ztr.
do i need one or just keep my ztr ?

Because they are lighter, smaller, take up less room on a trailer or in storage, won't rut up a yard as bad as a heavier ZTR, are cheaper to buy, won't make your back hurt, and will usually fit in tighter spaces than a ZTR with same size deck.

I traded my one and only ZTR in on a second walk-behind last year and am very happy with my decision.

Walk behinds will do hills better than a ZTR and are a lot lighter.
