    Im wondering what the max i can pull w
    my exmark ztr.Im not talking about power
    but treating the equipment right.
    The potential to pull is a lot,but do
    the hydros and other drive train components
    hold up to that kinda stuff.THANKS

    I should have been more specific with my post.
    The question is can i use my exmark 20 hp
    ztr to pull loads or is there a limit to
    what i should do so as not to harm the hydros.
    My tractor hydrostats can handle anything the motor
    will pull SO i need to know.THANKS AGAIN
