    Any suggestions on mowers that are good curb jumpers? Have a commercial property that has some pretty substantial curbs. Currently using a 36" Lesco Walk Behind w/ Jungle Wheels. It handles the curbs well, but I'm currently shopping for a new mower. Thanks!

    I went ahead and made a small set of ramps for curbs for my Run-Behind mower I just picked up.

    Basically I have one account where I can't sneak around somewhere and avoid the curbs. Though I've had experience with ZTR and curb hopping, the run-behind sits lower in the rear due to the smaller tires and the platform to stand on.

    That and even if I had a machine that would curb hop, I'd still do some sort of ramps as I feel curb hopping is just plain hard on machines, especially the front caster wheels.
