Buying a ZT Elite tomorrow and I have 1 ditchbank to mow. I have mowed with my neighbors zt but not the ditch bank. I think I can get pretty close to the bottom however what are the thoughts on this??? Take a 6' bar with 25lbs. of lead on the end . Attach it to the mower to offset the tendency to flip. Do I attach it to the front, rear, or middle?

Personally, I would not add a counter weight.
Calculate your slope angle and follow the instructions laid out in your owners manual.
Keep the fuel tank side of the mower on the uphill of slope.
Set your tire air pressure to the lowest recommended pressures.
Don’t get yourself into trouble. You can always use a weed whacker or push mower on what you cannot cut.

That's a good safe answer. I used to use a counter weight to mow a ditch bank in my youth as my dad added a counter weight to get down deep in a ditch with a rear engines Snapper. Worked great. I was wondering which end slips? Is it the front or the rear? I would think its the rear after looking at as many videos as I could.
