    Yes, get a ZTR. I could not imagine walking that much. I am doing right at 15 a week, and have 2 ZTRs.

    You'll most definitely need that walk-behind for back yards. And some people think that a ztr, commercial-grade, shouldn't be used on their yard. I can't help but laugh. I didn't spend $8000 to not use my mower!
