    Hi Guys I am wondering if there is a zero turn mower that will fit through a 36" gate and the deck is mounted in front of the mower to get under swings etc. I know you can get the phazar but the deck is under the mower which doesn't work well for my yards. Thanks

    I think a walker is to wide to fit through a gate:cry:

    Yeah the wheel base on a walker is like 42". I don't know of any others, you may have to go with a walk behind with a sulky.

    I have a 30 inch ZTR! :)
    A new Dixon Zeeter. I know it's not commercial but it works for the few yards that I have with smaller gates. I just sold my Toro Proline 48" and I'm gonna buy another large ZTR and a walkbehind. NO TORO!

    That would fit through the gate but it's a mid mount he is looking for a front mount.

    thanks for the responses guys. the gravely is just like the phazar being a mid mount. right now I have some 32 walkbehinds but I am looking to get more productive. I can't really use a sulky b/c my yard average about 2500 sq ft. w/ gates and all kinds of small areas where a sulky would just get in the way. Maybe the 32 stander would work. Does anyone run one? If you have any other suggestions I would appreciate them.
    Thanks

    sometimes you cna cheat a too wide front mower deck through a too narrow gate if you have room.

    approach at an angle, put the mower deck through the gate sideways, and work the mower through.

    years ago i used to put an 18 foot hay rake through 12 foot gates regularly this way.
