    has anyone on this site have any experience with the everride ztrs?
    they look like they are very well made. i looked at them on their website and they are made in nebraska and they bought out great dane from john deere and they make the john deere quik traks. their decks looks like the deeres iron 7 decks.

    Spoke with one of their reps this past week, he told me they are not built for mulching. Other than that I know nothing about them

    Do a search on here! I tested one out and found it to be outstanding! Cuts tall wet grass better than anything I have seen. And I had no issues with mulching.

    All I know is what the rep told me concerning mulching.

    I wonder if he meant leaves or grass? Grass I could see a problem with mulching with the tunnel deck design.

    JKOOPERS...What is complete crap about them. They are very sturdy machines. Only downfall is that they sit a little higher than most ZTRs. Same Kawi motor that others use. Belt/pulley design is great. Maint. is a breez. Look under the floor pan, there is a 12 inch handle to release spring tension for the belts. (no tools for belt change!) Articulating front axel which the deck is attached to. Deck is pulled from front, not pushed from rear. Not sure if that makes a huge diff. but the deck does follow the ground better than my regular floating decks. 16cc hydro pumps. with dedicated fan other each one. Huge discharge opening. The list continues...
