I know Walker makes an outfront with 36" deck capability, and Encore has a 34" somewhat unstable model. But I'm curious if anyone would have a use for a lighter weight, lower cost, 36" deck ztr. It could fit through gates, handle smaller lawns, possibly do less turf damage and be more acceptable to picky customers, be useable in rainy conditions heavy full size units might not handle, and maybe replace wb's in some applications. Keep weight around maybe 700 lbs, narrow frame at rear wheels to allow wide tires (the big problem with some small deck riders) to keep ground pressure low and grip high. Hp requirements and wheel motor specs would be less than bigger mowers, keeping price down. Basically just pare down a "real" ztr a little here and there. Given the choice of a $4500 hydro wb with $300 sulky, and a $5000 ztr, I would be tempted to go with the small ztr. I know I'd like to see manufacturers go just one size smaller rather than offer 32 versions of 60" plus mowers. They're not very useful here on the mostly small residential lots.
