Saw a 50" ztr Cb Cadet at tractor supply co today. Only $2999, but I think it is NOT for commercial use. The CC web site lists it as "residential".

Anyone use one of these commercially?

They use them in the commercials to try and make people believe they are going to be buying something that is a good product. So, they are a commercial machine.

It might hold up for the first year, but after that expect problems.

Thanks...thats what I thought. Since my budget is around $3000 I will probably go with something used like a exmark or scag 52" a few years old.

Won't hold up through your first year. Better off to go used!

Seem like Cub May have a reasonably price Commercial Line. I don't know anything about These, but take look at this:

Now see, why even waste time in your specs saying that you have a Fully welded steel frame, when in the same specs you put that you have a thin steel stamped deck. I'm sorry, but in my mind, if the deck is a stamped deck and not a seamless welded deck, with at least a 10 gauge top and a 7 gauge side.. it's not going to stand up the same.

Deere's decks hold up as good if not better than any fabricated deck because they are stamped from thick 7 guage steel verses the cub's thin 13 guage steel deck. The M50 is not really a commercial machine even though they say it is. Its more of a high end residential. The M48's and all the other M series are commercial grade mowers.

We sold 3 Tanks with the 13 ga. stamped deck, Inside of a year they had holes blown through them. The fab. deck is better on the Tank But for that reason we dumped them and went to the Choppers.
