ZTRs are found in both front mounts and mid mounts. Maybe you were confused by some of the rear steer front mounts out there.
As for looks/styling of some mid mount ZTRs, how does everyone veiw the look of Dixie Chopper? Change it? Leave it alone?
Just visited the Exmark site...I see the point of your question. I do believe that the frontrunner would do a fantastic job, it's just a bigger machine, whearas the ZTR mid mount is mor compact. I woud seem to think they would both do a similar cutting job, but the front rider may be faster.
