Hello all, just looking for some opinions. I am looking to buy either a rzt50 or maybe one of the z-force series lawnmowers and would like to hear some pros and cons. I am a homeowner mowing a little better than 1 acre fairly flat and a few trees and other obstacles. Love the commercial grade stuff, just can't justify the $ for my use. Thanks for the info.

i know this is months off from your original question, but did you ever decide on a mower or get any feedback on one of the two you asked about?

It's like this if you are mowing a flat easy property with no ruts and jarring the mower they will hold up some but they have a cheap deck not deep to handle thick grass,it all depends what you are mowing and your cost how much are you wanting to spend.

Scags tiger cubs are 6k they are coming out with a cheaper z my guess aroung 5k, what dealers are close what are you wanting.

You may want to look at a good commercial walk behind for the price you are looking to spend. More bang for the buck. Get a velke and go.

they are not commercial mowers, so they will break the first season of commercial use.. move up to the tanks by cub...
