I'm looking at getting a zero-radius or large walk-behind mower to mow
my 2+ acres. I have a regular riding mower but it is uncomfortable to
use; makes my back ache. Does anyone have any advice on either of
these 2 types of mowers, or any advice on alternatives?

Good day Norm. All in all, a zero radius mower and a mid/large walk behind
are really the same machine (generaly). The decks, wheels, motors...ect
are all the same but the lay out is different.
The Z's are going to be a lot like the tractor that you already have, but
the ride maybe more comfortable. The walk-behind mowers are great for
lawns that have grades or numerous obstacales to navigate around. I'm able
to mow steep grades with my 37" walk-behind that would flip the average Z.
A versatile mower that will go just about anywhere. Will pivot just like
the zero-radius mowers. You can get a sulky attachment so you don't have
Not as fast as a rider zero-radius mower. The sulky attachment let you
ride, but you must stand while operating the machine. Not very comfortable
on the knees/legs if the lawn is lumpy.
