I am curious as to how long you walk behind your mowers per week as well as how long you ride. <br>I got my new ztr 2 weeks ago and found that I am using it more than the walkbehind.Thats the reason I got a new one but I can really see my productivity increase. For some reason this Walker is faster than the old one. We have had plenty of rain so there is still heavy growth.<p>Of my 24 weeklys I am out a total of about 18 hours. <br>I ride for 16 of my 24 accounts which adds up to about 10 hours.<br>Walk behind Toro for 4 hours and thr rest is trimming and blowing. Of course these are averages. Just wondering what your experience is.
