I currently run a Toro gear w/b and am looking for something bigger for next season. I mow a 2+ acre lot that from all appearances seems fine until you start mowing it and is rutted up from people driving on it over the years and is just downright brutal on a w/b with sulkey. I'm wondering if it would be just as bad on a stander and I should look at the ztr. Most of my other jobs are residential, so the stander appeals to me for the small footprint and the fact that several have hills in the backyards that might be hairy on a Z, but I have a great Toro dealer in my area so that is something else to consider. If it matters, I'm looking for a 52" deck mower in either one.
