Cub Cadet Pro Z 972 SD Zero-Turn Mower

Cub Cadet Pro Z 972 SD Zero-Turn Mower Review

I tried to describe the feeling of riding along at 12+ mph while cutting grass on a zero turn with 4-wheel steering to a colleague who runs a professional landscaping company. When my description then turned to describe the dually wheels, he became absolutely convinced I was pulling his leg. So, at first glance, the […]
