Do the mower decks spin faster? You can only go so fast before the quality of the cut is going to suffer.Originally posted by jodyand
They are fast speed wise about twice as fast as an LT.

OK, if they don't spin any faster, how can they outperform a LT or GT? I have a 25 HP tractor w/ a 48" deck. It is a 6 speed, I have tried to mow in 5th gear and it is way to fast for a quality cut. I can't see how a ZT mower is going to decrease the mowing time, except for its maneuverability around obstacles. That's where it would outperform a lawn or garden tractor.Originally posted by jodyand
I don't think they spin faster because the government has a set standard on how fast a blade can spin. But they have big HP motor so they don't bogg down which in turn lets you mow faster.
Then they must have one hell of a high quality mower deck that allows them to cut at that speed.Originally posted by jodyand
As where my LT the top speed is like 5mph the ZTR can go as fast as 15mph.
