Just wondering if anyone has knowledge of the Cub zero turns that have a steering wheel. Are they any good? do they hold up?

from what I understand they are true zero turn. Never been too fond of the joy stick driving.

I'd always heard zero-turns were hard to control on side slopes, like when mowing a ditch. I got an LZ54 Cub Cadet TANK, lever steering, took about 10 minutes to get comfortable with the steering. When I mowed with my 982 Cub Cadet by the time I got done, 2 and 3/10's acres, 4 hrs on 982, 2-1/2 hrs on Zero turn, I could barely lift my arms mowing with 982, wasn't tired a bit with zero turn. Zero turn mows WAY WAY nicer than ANY of the five older CC tractors I've used. And the one 38" deck I did a LOT of modifications to get it to mow better, it was best of the 5, but no where's near as nice as the zero turn. My TANK was/is a Commercial mower, not a residential mower, this is 5th year mowing, hour meter says 186.0 hours, and not a single repair. 5 oil/filter changes, first after 10 hours, then change yearly, grease it every 25 hours per manual. Sharpened blades One time, at the start of this season. I hear people complain about how cheaply built CC mowers are. Check the WEIGHT of the mower before writing out the check. BUY the heaviest mower, NOT the cheapest.

Our cemetery bought one 3 years ago. The lady who cuts the grass picked it out, ordered the upgraded suspension seat, and really likes it. Very handy for the amount of trimming in a cemetery. The steering wheel is also more natural to control than using levers. Works well, it will have a couple hundred hours on by now.
