ZTRs or W/Bs: When, where and why?

For the crews that mainly run ZTRs: Why is it so?

For the crews that mainly run W/Bs: Why is it so?

I am trying to decide if I spend minimal money on a W/B and get a good ZTR or do I buy the best W/B and do not get a ZTR.

It would be great to hear from people who have experience with both.

My chosen dealer will call me soon when he places his next order for mowers and I need my decision made ASAP to get my equipment on that order.

Thanks in advance.

Yup, 23 or 25 horsepower, 54 inch deck, same wheels as a stander, and it's a WB or rider for under $6,000.
