    The big thing is the WB lacks the speed of the rider.

    But I have often wondered why more people don't use the big Exmark WB's. This should be an interesting topic nonetheless.

    What is the reason for owning a large WB mower like the one John posted?Is it more maneuverable?Better on slopes?Is the quality of cut better?

    John.........are you suggesting the WB you pictured will give a better cut than the Z you pictured?

    I would be interested in hearing more detail about you experience and opinions on this.

    that was the thinking behind my post. hills and slopes are scary on a ztr i always feel a lot safer more in control with a wb on a hill rather than a rider

    Here is an eXmark WB on a slope - ZTR's can not handle this terrain.
