Does a ztr really pay for itself in time saved vs. a 36 inch midsize

    I started a couple of years ago with a 48" Hustler wb and still use it on certain yards. I bought a 54" ztr this past season and am also solo. During the dog days of summer, those big properties I use the ztr on, I drink less water and have more energy when it is time to trim/edge. That alone is worth the upgrade as well as less time. Time is money as they say.

    Yeah, I've noticed that about the gates. It seems, from reading on this site anyway, that the farther north you go, the less people have fenced back yards. To me it seems strange. It's all I've ever known. Everyone has a fence around their back yard for privacy here. Plus it keeps the dogs (and small children) in.

    It probably seems strange to the folks up north. But, then again, it seems really strange to me for folks to NOT want a back yard fence. LOL.
