    I'm not looking for any specific or detailed anwers...

    Been drooling over a ZTR and this has me wondering...I'm drooling over a Kubota in case it flavors the answer

    How would a ZTR (any other than one WITH suspension) rate as far as ride qualty, against a generic riding mower (in my case, a Scotts 50" 20 hp Kohler)

    Would they both ride similar in a pasture field?
    would the ZTR ride more rough since it's likely to have a higher ground speed?

    The Ztrs go faster than a lawn tractor but if the ground is rough you need to go slower. Most Ztrs will go close to twice as fast speed wise as a lawn tractor. I have two Ztrs and we rarely go full speed because very few our our accounts are perfectly flat. Ztrs will cut faster, have a better cut and be more maneuverable than any lawn tractor.
