They 'claim' you can cut your lawn in half the time. I don't believe that but if I should shave 30-45 mins off my normal 2 hrs 30 min I would be very happy I was thinking of starting a thread in Off Topic to get some owner opinions on those zero turning mowers.
    Those things rock , you will cut your time in half or more easily . Especially if you keep it short enough and your blades sharp where you can really move and leave a sweet cut behind you

    The one I was looking at in Lowes was a Husqvarna Z4217 - 42" cut / 17 HP. I did a little research and it's apparently a lower end model. Sells for $2700 at Lowes. But these things go WAY up in price. I've seen some for $15000 The Z4217 goes 6 mph. I wish I knew how fast my Craftsman garden tractor goes in 6th speed because sometimes I run it at top speed

    edit: my tractor goes 5.4 mph which feels really fast to me. Not sure I'd want to go much faster!

    Lenny , the ones I used were the commercial types made by SCAG , but most all I have seen are very similar . I doubt if you'll regret buying it , be patting yourself on the back every time you cut the grass in less than an hour

    Oh well, just a 3-day weekend for me this weekend I get to install a new TV antenna tomorrow on our roof (so we can get more than 1 digital OTA channel), and a drug test for the new job
