    most ztr's will back over a curb easily, just take it easy dont go flying up to it. I know exmarks, badboys, grasshoppers, and hustlers all will from my experience. First make sure your deck is all the way up. Then just back up at a 45 degree angle and back one tire up on the curb. Then work the other drive tire up over the curb. Next get both front wheels squared up to the curb and slowly back straight up. I have done it thousands of times with no problem!! best of luck to you.

    You can just a curb with almost any walkbehind or zeroturn. Its not hard.

    Walker mower makes a plastic "curb Jumper" ramp. Several years ago it was expensive at $84.00. But it has been quite handy to have.

    I have a 61" Wright Stander that is used on some HOAs and commerical properties with alot of curb jumping and it does really well.
