    I own an Everride Warrior 54inch. The front forks move independently. Very nice feature makes mowing the ditch lines a breeze. I was wondering what other Ztr Companys offer this?

    Kubota offers this on some of their new commercial mowers. Lower end gas models come with an optional jack that fits on the mower to lift the front to get to the blades. Their diesel models you have a crank and you can rotate the wheels so they are up and down so it lifts the front of the mower to get to the blades. Hard to explainn check it out on their website or in person. You also have the option of locking them so they are stiff. Better ride with them working independently. Better cut when they are locked.

    Cub Tanks have two options on the front forks. They can be set to flex or set to lock them.

    When locked they give a better cut on rough ground. On smooth ground unlocked forks give a good cut and smoother ride.
