02-27-2006, 08:43 PM
I am just starting out was looking for some help on this question.
I have $5000 cash to spend on a mower and was wondering if I should go for a used eXmark or Toro or get a new Deer LX series?:confused:

Honestly, Im a deere fan. But your comparing apples to oranges here. Garden tractors and ztrs are two completly different animals.

In your situation Id stick with a commercial mower like a used exmark or toro if those are my only options.

Otherwise why dont you check out a JD 717A.

If your going with a residential Deere, get a GT series of higher. If commercial, check into a 717A like stated above. I'm a avid John Deere man so thats all I will recommend, not that Exmark and Toro dont have good equipment. Also, another idea....with $5000 to spend you might want to find a used, early 2000's Deere 425 or 445. They come with 54" or 60" decks and are an awesome lawn & garden tractor. Search on www.machinefinder.com. :)
