Got my first zero turn mower. My wife and I just purchased 4.5 five acres to ad to our 6.5 we had. Used to mow about 2.5-3 of it. Now she wanted to mow about 6 total. Told her needed bigger mower. After finding this site, and spending 4 weeks testing zero turns, (I have over 35 bouchers on every ztr on the market!!)) bought a one year old Woods Mowing machine 2250. Question.... seemed hard to hold sticks forward after first hour, so took return springs off and wow much better. Is this ok to leave off? Question....My new land is (was) 6 inches long old pasture. Mighty bumpy at 6-10 mph on mower.. will rolling after a heavy rain with rental roller help? Question.... can I pull with Zero turn with out damaging hydros? Thanks to all for the advice!!!
