Do you cut grass with a Zero turn or do you cut grass with a Garden tractor?

Depends on the job.
For doing steep hills I use a rider or a walk behind.
A rider will hold hills that a ztr can not.

For most everything else I use a ztr.

Thank you Carscw, Some input that people can use and understand why and when to use a zero turn and when to use a GT.

I mowed with a tractor for about 14 years. My property is mostly flat, but quite a few obstacles. I've wanted a ZT for a few years and finally bought a Hustler. Mowing is no longer a mundane chore. I went from an hour to about 35 minutes.

For years I used a GT until I re-damaged my left shoulder.

Simply turning the steering wheel became quite painful. I put up with the pain for a year and finally said no more. I bought a zero turn mower.

Operating a ZT causes me no pain whatsoever, it's much quicker to get the job down and is frankly fun to run.

Now, the pain in your wallet for a ZT is something else altogether...but once you swallow that bit of financial indigestion, you'll be good to go.
