Zero turn mowers
I am researching zero turn mowers to purchase same in the near future. I will be buying at the 42" deck size. I have narrowed my options to the Toro Time Cutter 42", 21hp (Kawasaki engine) and the John Deere EZ Trak Z225...also a 42" deck with a B&S 18.5hp engine.
I have also looked at Craftsman ZTS6000 a 42" with 21hp B&S.
I have noticed that the Craftsman and Troy Bilt (may be more)have a "piviting front axle" for smoother ride over slightly uneven ground....where the John Deere and Toro units do not have this feature as their front axles seem to be one solid axle.
Intuitively, it would seem the piviting front axle would be an advantage.
CAN ANYONE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS AND THE POSSIBLE IMPORTANCE OF ONE VS THE OTHER?
