I know that there are some that can't afford a ZTR and run tractor type mowers. But there are a few of you that just like a tractor for certain reasons. I have found times when I need some extra help I could use a tractor and put someone to use with very little training especially in open area's but I can't see it paying for it's self. I bet the larger JD tractors with a 7 Iron deck do a good job. So who still uses tractors, I've asked this question before and there are some well established LCO's that still have one or prefer one in certain circumstances.
