I have read on here many times about how careful you should be with the hydro's on z's and wether you should pull this or that and many on here seemed to feel that you shouldnt tow with these mowers. So I just asked my mechanic who was an aircraft mechanic and has worked on small engines since he was a kid. He is a genius at his trade. He said, that you can pull a car with these mowers. He also added that you need mobil 1 oil and most of these mowers were set up to keep cool enough that it wouldnt be an issue of them heating up too much.He also said that you would need to change the oil more often under this type of condition. Reason I brought this up because I was wondering how the hydro's differ from ztr's compared to forklifts or heavy construction equipment. Hydraulics is what makes these machines so powerful yet everyone is so cautious about them. What do you guys think? I know I've read on here that an owner of a DC states he can tow 1k lbs with it.
