Default Zero turn on bumpy ground?

Looking at breaking down and buying a legitimate mower. Have spoken with A-1 and Scott has be looking hard at a Scag Liberty Z zero turn. It has 20" rear tires and 11.5" fronts I believe. Other brands have models priced similarly with 22/13" wheels. The ground is still a little wild in some places and it's just rough. Toro makes one with a well reviewed seat suspension system. Just wanting some real world experience on less than perfect terrain.

I have a Snapper zero-turn and it doesn't seem to have ANY suspension! I didn't even think about that when I bought it. It is definitely a bumpy ride!

I have a commercial grade torro i bought new a few years ago. Everything about it has been great but it beats the living shit out of me. Must be why they made a seat improvement like you mentioned. Guess my comment really doesnt answer your question unless you are buying an older torro...

I have a Hustler and a John Deere zero turn. They both beat the crap out of you on rough terrain. I need to find an airbag to sit on while mowing. Anything out there like that?

I run exmark for my business and I wouldn’t say it’s a Cadillac on rough terrain.

If I was looking for something to suit your needs I would look hard at the John Deere’s with the Tweel Turf tire. A buddy of mine ran one and said it was awesome on rough terrain. See what Smith Tractor can do for you up in Jay on one.

You need to check out a ferris, best riding mower. Hands down.
Toro has the my ride system as well. Both great pieces of equipment.

We have a Toro 3000 with the myride suspension and it's great even on bumpy ground.
