Have you ever used one. They are really not scary.
Truthfully no, but there have been a couple accidents around here. In one case a dad ran over his little girls feet.

I don’t have exact details but I believe she ran up on him just as he was whipping it.

I actually had a close call with a landscaper running one near us while we were setting up.

Not trying to throw shade on ZTR’s in fact I’d love to have one. Just cautioning everyone to be careful.

would not mind getting a JD300 series in diesel but around here they are all used up when you find them.

I have a few hills in my yard. I have been thinking about getting some wheel weights, agro tires, or a 4 wheel drive lawnmower. I don't know why I am having problems with it. None of my lawn guys ever had any problems.

I cut 3 acres an hour on either of my JD 950 or Skag turf tiger zero turns for about 2 gallons of fuel. I sure that fossil you are mowing with is not processing 3 acres an hour and using 1 gallon of heating oil for 3 acres.
About 1.5 hours per three acres due to many trees. About a gallon heating oil.It a 5 foot deck and turns as tight as any lawn tractor can turn.

After seeing all y’all’s awesome rigs it bugs me I showed you the side of my tractor that’s missing the plastic front wheel bearing cover.
I’m better at maintaining stuff than that and I’m ordering a half dozen Tuesday morning! Lol

First I thought you were bull shitting me so I looked up the ground speed on a 430. It's rated at 10MPH which is cranking for a tractor that size. Most commercial zero turns run about the same 10-12 MPH. Does it have a tendency to want to push if you turn too sharp at higher speeds. Those older 400 series are pretty bullet proof.

That 400 JD is nicely done on previous page. I just sold our 445. Treated us very well. We have a 54" dixon now and a 60" Country clipper 26 hp Kawi. I can't comfortably mow at full speed. Lawn is too bumpy. That tracked zero above would be a nightmare. You pivot on one wheel a lot turning, and that thing would tear shit up. The Kubota above is a badass machine.
