I am going into my second year and am planning an upgrade for my frontline mower. I am considering one of three options: ZTR Rider 44"-52", a Great Dane Stander, or 52" WB Hydro w/ Rocketwheels. First let me say I have read through about 200 previous posts on ZRT's and Standers. I have a few specific questions and I could used the sage advise of the more experienced, seasoned guys (and gals) on this board. About my crew/accounts: I currently used a 19 HP 48" Hyrdo w/ Rocket wheels. I run a 3 man crew. We service mostly residential accounts (60) and some commercial (13). No accounts with gates narrower than 50". Most of the Residentials are mid to large lots (3/4 - 2 acres) and the commercials range from 1-2 1/2 acres. I would prefer to sit, of course, but I am concerned with the imprint/damage left behind with the ZTR's. I am located in Central Florida where the grass is wet everyday until noon. Low lying areas at or slightly above sea level with often damp soil conditions. How will the riders affect this being so heavy? Will the wider tires offset the increase in weight? Will the Great Dane Standers do a better job in regards to this issue? Or is a ZTR Rider unrealistic to begin with considering we do mostly (80%) residential. Any and all replies will be greatly appreciated.
