I personally would not buy any thing cub cadet my first year I bought cub equipment 75% of it did not make it through the season without major repair. It is good for home use but not comm.
As for the other co. I know nothing about them
I do know how ever you get what you pay for and if I can give any advise at all is don't buy cheap tools.If you are a small co. and you buy cheap and it breaks the other guy will be taking care of your customer while your equipment is in the shop.

Personally I'd go with the Toro.

Which one?

I agree. I bought a couple cub cadet blowers and they did not last a season either. I took them to get repaired and I was told it would be cheaper to buy new ones so I bought Toro. So far they seem fine, of course the season is just starting so we will see what happens.

I would go with toro personally i havent ever used a Cub Cadet ZTR but i do know that i have a Toro Zmaster (27hp 52" w/ turboforce deck) and i would say that it is one of the best if not the best ztr on the market IMO look into which dealer is the best

I have 5 cub/mtd pro, mowers, all have been good to me. If you in a market for a rider, I would probably go with a 60" model.
