    I've noticed that most full size ztr's like the Turf Tiger Lazer Z,etc all weigh over 1300lbs.So I was just wandering has anyone ever heard of or experienced one of these mowers cracking a customers pipes to their sprinkler system?

    If a sprinkler line gets broken from the light footprint of a ZTR then it was quite inadequately installed.

    It happens all the time.. Many installers don't put flex couplers on the heads and if you run over a head you can crack the pipe. And in addition sometimes all the pipes are together and you can damage more than one. And yes it isn't installed properly but try to tell that to a customer!
