Considering most gas 60" class ZTR's are 12xxlb machines, that is a LOT of extra weight. Not something you really want to be using on residential lots.
We mostly cut residential...but the lots are large. 30K sq/ft lawns are not unusual. A small lawn around here is still over 10K sq ft (actual lawn area). The minimum lot size in my town is 2 acres.
The weight issue would concern me in the spring, when the ground is soft after the thaw and spring rain.
