it looks like it has alot of wiehgt on the rear wheels do you find it hard not to tear up any grass? or does it seems like it will go on a hill good, have you been on a hill with it?
The machine has an extra weight on the rear. (Weighs about 40 pounds, I took it off to repaint so I know). This is my first z turn and have not had any problems with ripping turf. The few times that i did happen was because I was careless. I mow a factory with a steep bank that is 3-400 feet long. I brought my Scag on todays route figuring that I would need it but never did. The Kubota did just fine.
