    Have not owned one but tested one, squirrelly S.O.B's. Like the idea but could not get used to it. Add in that I am almost 6 ft 5 in - not a stander or WB that I could not feel every turn in my back by the end of the day.

    I have the Snapper version and I love it. It's a different seating position than anything I've ever been on. With that said I think it puts your back in a better position for absorbing bumps than a ZTR. The suspension travel in the seat also blows away suspension seats.

    How are they on hills? I want to demo one and mow a lot of hilly areas here in NH.

    I'll get a picture of a hill I did on it the other day. My cousin runs Scags and says this holds better than any of the Scags he's run.

    I bought this as a dealer demo with 240 hours on it and the thing totally moves. Not much you cant get around through or over with this thing. The only thing is it takes some getting used to the hand controls. With that said I want to go back to a conventional zero turn. Anyone interested, drop me an email I am in the Twin Cities metro area. ( Mlps / St. Paul, MN)

    It's a lot more comfortable to sit on and ride than the wright sentar. You also have suspension so the bumps are a whole lot easier on your body. The regular standers are easier on you than a sentar but i get tired of standing after a couple hours. I haven't demoed or owned a evolution but did run one at a dealer. I could sit there all day. When I first looked at it it looked like a joke
