2014 Craftsman 54 Inch Model 20415 Zero Turn Riding Mower Review

Is This Zero-Turn Mower Best For You?

Summary: This is one of the tougher residential zero-turns on the market. Features I like are the steel pulley covers on the deck. You can stand on them! I like the automatic parking brake. Open the handles to get off and the parking brake automatically sets. This zero-turn uses a tub chassis. The tub chassis is stiff so it will handle slopes better. 8 cutting heights.

I know zero-turn mowers are all the rage. These mowers are supposed to save you time and make your life easier I like them and use them all the time. But if you are new to zero-turns I would like you to read this article before you buy one.  Do I really need a zero-turn mower?

I’ve been trying to see the back of this mower to determine if it has a hitch or a plate to attach a spreader or something for light towing. Do you know? If not, how would one go about adding something?
