Some things are subjective, but I'm amazed at how many times I see opinions on things here that are 180 degrees different. I was doing some searches to see how Walker riding mowers handle hills vs. Exmark Lazer Z HP's. Some posts brag about their hillside mowing ability. My research on their design seems to agree, they "should" hold hills better (not just downhill). yet I have read other opinions that say they "won't hold hills" and that a Lazer would be better. I need a 2nd mower soon as a dedicated mulcher on mostly small residentals, leaving the other ztr to handle discharging on wide areas. I know I like the cut, mulching ability, reliability, and dealer network of Exmark, but I am tempted by the lighter weight(of the new b model) flip up deck, and out-front deck of the Walker. How can experiences be so different?
