    Looking at buying a 52",Citation model, Simplicity zero turn mower. Anyone on here have any experience with this model?? Really drawn to the suspension aspect of these units compared to others.

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    I have run a commercial Toro zero-turn mower for several years. They cut nice, but be very careful when attempting to "zero-turn." Most of the time you'll end up taking big chunks of sod out of your lawn when the tire that's not moving is pivoting. You've really got to learn how to feather the drive on these types of mowers to prevent ruts around trees and rocks and anything else that gets mowed around. Perhaps the technology on these drives has improved over the last few years to prevent this type of "turf chewing," but I'm not aware of it.
