    To those of you w/ Kubota ZD28s' and a 60" Pro deck - how well do you cope with cutting around natural areas, fences, etc. I'm comtemplating the extra hp but I know I want the 60" deck and just don't think the 60" deck extends enough past the rear wheels on the ZD28. Any opinions on this matter will be appreciated - thanks in advance !

    Almost all ZTR's have the problem of having a back wheel getting in the way - how many times does the back wheel run over landscape edging when turning a 90 degree corner on the first round along an nicely landscaped property - You need to be 18 inches farther away from the obstacles or landscapeing to do a continuous pass.

    We would not mow with that 18". It makes you twice as fast then with just a 60" mower. That doesn't sound right but I can prove it any time.
