Yeah, but the operator hangs off the back of the machine to act as a counterweight.

That would actually wounldnt be bad for the do it yourself homeowner but still wouldn't work for a zero turn. Burn up the hydros and kill the front casters.

I would still rather have a tractor with a front end loader that was designed for the machine then to ever try and mess around with that stuff.
