the rear wheels dont follow the front casters, so it’s easy to knock over things that you think you will clear when going around them, like the porch rail or a fence post. trying to make a 90 degree turn around corners ends eventually tearing the grass out, at least at my skill level.

You'll know you have a lot of Z-turn experience when you can back up full speed in a straight line without leaving skid marks in the wet spots then up a ramp under the same conditions.
Forget backing up. I can't even go forward in a straight line after one day.

It all comes with practice. I mow about 3 acres with a lot of obstacles, one reason I got a Z-turn a few years ago.
When I started I couldn't go straight in any direction for more than about 4 feet. After a season using it, the place where I got it wanted me to get it on and off the trailer for service. By then I had more practice than they did. For me the joystick makes a big difference in control, but after a while I seem to get carpal tunnel there. Still, it leaves the other hand free for a beer and a smoke.

I just discovered that my Model# and Serial# sticker is mostly missing on my Zero Turn I bought this week. Anybody know how to reclaim that info?
