Zero Turn Mower for Slopes
I have a new pond, and mowing will be a challenge--especially the dam. I needed to cut the temporary rye grass in preparation of hydroseeding, and I did not feel safe using either my bush hog or my regular riding mower. I finally got my friend to cut it today; he used a John Deere 48" zero turn mower. That got me to reading about them, but most of what I read said they are not really suitable for slopes. I called my local Cub Cadet dealer, since I have an LT1554 I would like to trade in; he suggested two Cub Z-Force mowers that have a traditional-looking steering wheel. Is the steering wheel on those models just a gimmick, or does it really make it more suitable for slopes? I am also considering the Toro TimeCutter and Titan, and the Husqvarnnas. I have never liked the Cub LT1554, because it seeemed so slow and underpowered for such a big engine. Are their zero turns better?
