    A few years ago the hot setup deemed to be the three wheel rider (deck in front/ drive,engine/ rider in back) now it seems to be the ZTR. The 3 wheelers seem to cut well, steer well, and keep you out of the trees, and are cheaper. Was the change because of room on the trailer or for other reasons.
    Just wondering.

    Most importantly....Maneuverability.

    Trailer space is important too, but ZTR is right at home even in small landscaped lawns
