Well today was my first day running my new Scag Z-Cat (36"). I first have to say, WHY DID I WAIT ALL THESE YEARS TO GET OFF MY FEET? It was great making my way around the properties in a quick and efficient manner. It was also quick going from house to house since I have alot of houses on the same street. Since this is my first ZTR mower I will become more efficient turning as time goes by. I left a few marks here and there in thin areas but have done that with my WB while turning as well. The Z-Cat is an amazing machine. The quality of cut was great. I thought the deck with its 3 blades was alot louder than my WB but I can attribute that to the fact that maybe its because I'm sitting right over the deck. Guess I'll just turn up my Worktunes AM/FM hearing protection headset. I liked the ability to change mow heights easily in comparison to my WB. If your still walking consider a rider. Wish I did 8 years ago when I started.
