For those of you with a ZTR and WalkBehind, do you prohibit your machine on certain lawns?
Do you keep the ZTR off smaller lawns?
If so, what is the size of lawn that you prohibit the use of a ZTR? Smaller than 10,000 square feet?
Smaller than 20,000 square feet?
I'm finding more and more people wanting a WalkBehind ONLY on lawns that are 20,000 square feet or less.
I can see where some lawns will wear in certain areas (using a ZTR) after continuous weekly service, but every lawn is different.
I believe the extra 500 lbs or so is the cause. Meaning the WalkBehind will not wear the grass out as easy as a ZTR.
Most lawns smaller than 20,000 square feet take me longer with a ZTR anyway b/c you have to be so slow/smooth/careful when turning. So it doesn't bother me too much to use a WalkBehind on those yards.
Tell me what you all think!!!
