    Do you guys that only have walk-behinds ever get tired of walking/ or standing on those things all day?

    I thought I would start out with one instead of a zero-turn?
    What is yalls opinions?

    Start out with a wb with sulky. More economical, more manuverable, and cheaper. Buy a Z when you can justify one.

    walk behinds zero turn man.

    what you meant is walk behinds or a ZTR...zero turn rider.

    It all depends on what your mowing...but anyways the Wright manufacturing company are making standers that outperform ztr's now so make your own choice.

    Buy a z. Buy a ferris. Your body will thank you. There are plenty of used deals out there. I can mow all day and not even be tired or beat up with my ferris. It makes taking on more business a joy and you dont have to "upgrade" later. One purchase.

    Zero turn riders are not as comfortable as they might look.
    Take your pick, let your ankles and knees take the bumps, or send the shocks up through your spine.
    Takes practice, either way.

    UUMMM i respectfully disagree. No hand strain, back strain, leg strain. Especially if you use a ferris or a suspension seat.

    Your back gets a beating either way.. :hammerhead: Or are your legs and back not connected anymore? ;)

    Do you mean do I ever get so tired working that I punch myself in the back to help break up the communication link between my back and brain? Yes.

    I had a ztr, but got tired of sitting all day, so I switched to a walk behind. I don't mind standing or walking althought I am mostly on the sulky.
