Still waiting on my proslide. Should see production jump with it. All and all I love it. My biggest problem is trying to make straight lines. Just need some operating time. Same problem on quicktrak. I have mindset
Of squeezing to slow wheel down instead of pushing to speed up tire

I think you would be well satisfied with one. I've had an exmark metro 36" belt drive and I have a yard shark 52" hydro with pistol grips. I use yard shark on really steep and the JD is like driving a Cadillac compared to the others I've run. If you have it wide open you can jog behind it.

Yeah I could probably use the ztr on most of it but the guy is a stripe fanatic and I don't think I could keep a straight line so I use the walk behind. Around here steep is normal but it is what it is. It'll keep you in shape though
