    Why do some people prefer the outfront type zero turns instead of the mid mount?

    I used to work for another company that used ferris outfront mowers. The only real benefit I saw to them was there ability to get under trees (especially pines). The down side was the way they make the operator whip around when you turn.

    They both have benefits, so it is more of a personal preference.
