I see that a lot too.
A neighbor down the street has a 1/2 acre corner lot that a 3 man lawn crew does. One looks like the owner on a 60" Kubota ZTR. He does the left side and back with the ZTR and his one worker uses a 48" WB on the front and right side area which is about 50% bigger. The other guy does all the trimming. His two workers are ALWAYS done before him and packing up while he's still cutting with the Kubota ZTR.
But when you watch them both cut one can easily see why. With a mid-mount deck on the ZTR he has to drive around a tree to get all sides and can't get under shrubs and bushes. Also he needs a lot more room to spin the 60" ZTR around vs the 48" WB so he needs more space from a obstacle.
A ZTR is NOT the best choice for every yard but many blockhead LCO's erroneously think so.
