    Do any of you Solo guys have both a ZTR and WB?

    Thinking about adding a WB next year sort of as a back-up and as a way to get into some smaller and gated lawns.

    I run a dixie ztr and a toro wb. I started out on a wb and grew until I needed something bigger. The wb has it's place but isn't used much anymore.

    Got both, comes in handy-- if you have enough work to justify both.

    I have both, I use both, On smaller residentials the walkbehind seems faster. The walkbehind cost about 1/2 as much as the Z and cost almost 1/2 to operate. Add a velke and you may surprised in the amout of difference in time between the two.I dont like to ride or stand all day and I find that I feel better whenI use both in a days time

    If I had to do it over again, I'd buy a Wright Stander or Great Dane-- more manueverable than a ZTR and you don't have to walk 8 miles a day. Only reason I bought the ZTR is for the vaccuum baggage system for spring/fall clean up.

    That is true...nobody know how maneuvrable the Stander is until you ride on one, plus the hill mowing ability of it makes me think and think and think what is my upgrade or addition.
