I think the are wonderful! And its true you cant drink and ride lol. I used one for work on a farm in the summer for cutting around the barn and boss' house they are a treat to drive; his husqvarna was great on the extremely unleveled ground. Although If i had 10-15grand to buy a mower id buy a small Kubota tractor or case then i can plow deer food plots and pull small trees and drag logs..
Edit--
The do cut down on cut time majorly especially if you have trees or post to mow around.

The only down side to a zero turn is that they can be difficult to keep on a straight track on a slope. The ride quality is about the same as a regular riding mower or garden tractor.

Well dad has a 2-3 year old husqvarna rider, which has done very well.. except its cranks a bit too start up,its' done it since we got her(only when cold/setting for awhile\days,etc.. I been told it's because the gas tank is under the seat and not in the engine compartment.

And I think he just wants an extra one around.

eh, most anything small engine with a carb will crank a bit to start after it sits a while. make sure he idles the engine for a minute or two before he shuts it off, most tractors like that, helps them cool down and start easyier next time. what engine does his currant tractor have?

also, how big of a yard does he have to mow & how often does he mow it?
