You need to repost this in the commercial mowing forum to get responses.

I am not the norm here as I have a Steiner. It is a front mount that will take more trailer space, but I love the fact I can see exactly where the deck is and can reach under trees. It is a case of what one is used too.

Front mount

Mid mounts are much more popular for a reason. Nothing wrong with a front mount. Price, trailer space, tight turn arounds in lawns, extra initial cost are some of the reasons. A mid mount is has a smaller footprint and is more versatile most of the time. Fronts trim under trees better and handle some but not all slopes better. A Grasshopper or Walker seem to be the most popular front mounts if you go that direction.
