    I know everyone has one, but our opinions have been given and can be found on past threads in the search page I have. Click on the middle link below and you can read about every brand and there is one on ZTR's too. We all have the best brand possible, so that is a Ford vs. Chevy thing on that part.

    If you have a lot of low trees, an out front might be best, but if you have lots of wide open spaces and the trees are kept trimmed up higher, I feel the midmounts are much faster and do a great job of cutting.

    one big factor you should think about is space. unless you buy a front cut that folds up in the front id go with a midmounts. front cuts take up too much space. just a thought
