Most of the large lawn care companies around here us front mount Grasshoppers. They always told me that they rode much better than the mid mount ZTR's. I test drove a 727 front mount yesterday and it did well on the slopes as promised but they ride seemed bumpy even with the suspension seat. It was a bit of a let down. They offered me a great price (meter showed 14 hrs so they had been playing with it some) but the ride just didn't seem any better than a midmount. They are a new dealer so maybe they had too much air in the tires or something. If you have used both the mid mount and the front mount give me you opinions on ride quality. Does you front mount or midmount ride better. Also the electric deck lift jammed on them twice and they said it was easy to fix but that concerned me also. The 727 with suspension seat and electric lift, 60" cut was only 8400. Guess they were selling it as a demo. Seems like a great price but it didn't seem to ride any better than my midmount. Your opinions please!!!!!
