    Has anyone heard of or have opinions on Columbia Riders, ZTR's. Can not find any information on the web about these. It will be used for residential lawn under 2 acres.

    Never heard of them and couldn't find any info about them. Why not just buy a brand name piece of equipment that has been proven to last?

    They are made by MTD.
    If you want a machine that will last, this is NOT that machine.

    The columbia zero turn and lawn tractors are really the late White Outdoor. Columbia bought White Outdoor == the only change is the orange and black color formerly gray and red. Unfortunately, Columbia dropped the 54" zt and only sells the 50" zt. I own one 54" zero turn and one 54" tractor, both are awesome. I mow a 4 acre lawn weekly and drive these mowers hard and long with no maintenance other than blade sharpening and oil changes. I need all 54" to mow my lawn on a weekly and timely basis. Sometimes I even get some help from son who didn't like mowing until one day when he jumped on my big 54" that drives like a cadillac. Now he mows more often.
