What do you guys think?
Big Con...Makes the Mower Longer than Necessary & Harder to Control in Ditches & Slopes...Say No to Casters on 21"'s.
What the hell is that thing? it looks like a cross between a string trimmer and a edger. Just looking at a Cub Cadet 21" with caster wheels and its no longer than a regular mower.
P.S. I think they are great- don't have to lift mower when turning. So say yes to caster wheels.
thanks for the pic.
Ok..so you lose a few..maybe 6-8" out front...but since it turns on a dime ..won't that hit what ya missed?
There are Good Reasons Casters are not Used on Serious Commercial Units like the Prolines or HRC's.
any other reasons besides what you've mentioned?
i did a quick search and the benefit seems to be its turning radius. Somebody said they really good for parking lot islands and around tree rings.
they are worthless on a 21.
casters don't completely lock in place, there's a little play. If you're on a hillside they make the mower very hard to keep up hill and straight due to the wheels turning downhill.
