    The are sometimes referred to as "Trail" mowers.

    I have never used one, but strongly considered it one time. I know a guy who used on in an offset fashion behind his lawn tractor, worked well.
    Made an okay cut, when you are cutting 4 or 5 acres with a homeowner type tractor, it is great for seriously cutting your mowing time.

    I was considering getting one of these for my atv also but I decided to go with another ztr instead. A few things that I didn't like about it was the fact that it didn't cut that great and you always have to make sure its going where you want it to go. If you can afford it go with a ztr.:weightlifter:

    i was going to buy one to do a large farm with, but didn't. the cost was too much to justify it. and on the small yards it wouldn't look good as it does not cut any where near the cut of a simplicicty.
