I'm all set up except for my main tool, my ZTR, I am currently looking at a couple and wanted to knwo what you guys think, a 06 JD 757 54" http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=160314636147 but that is super high hours, a exmark lazer z with bagger 52" http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=220358508459 , a toro z master 62" almost 1000 hours http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=200308488900, a kubota zd21 and zd28, i'm looking to do all shape's and sizes of lawns so I need something big enough to get the big ones done and small enough to not overpower the little ones, probably 54 or 60 inch? Thanks

A lot of standard z turns here are usually around 48-54. but 60 is a good number for the bigger properties. That Lazer z that has the buy it now for 5500 is way too much, even though it is a newer model, you don't know how many hours are on it. His reserve is probably going to be high also. If it were me I would disregard that one. I don't know about that 62 inch, depends on how high it goes, round 2300 would be ok.

Go with the toro zmaster, trust me you will not be dis appointed....

That exmark is beat up like to other and is not worth you buying it

And the john deere looks nie but ive heard john deeres spend more time in maintenance than mowing, but ive never used one so i dont know for sure

I have a toro and have never ever had a problem with it, it cuts great and still runs like new!

i called the local dealers today and found a encore 22hp 60" with 450 hours, asking 3,500, and found a gravely pro50 gear with velkey new engine, new tires and drive belts, $900, monday there is an auction of equipment that where the kuboties and jds are, but i think im definitely gonna get the walkbehind.

Thats kind of high, but I have the same lazer z, but it is not fuel injected. Mine is the 25 horse, plus, mine has almost 3000 hours, engine has never been touched. If he was asking around 2500 it would sound ok. The fule injected engine people have told me they have experienced numerous problems with them.

I agree...get the Toro Z Master. It's a great mower.

I think I will stick with the gravely for now, until closer to the season when i know how many accounts i have and then get a z-turn, anything i need to know about a gravely pro 50? It has a just about new engine on it, <150hrs, 15hp kohler, new drive tires, it has gator blades on it now, I'm gonna put on some bagger blades, and the drive belts either need to be adjusted a bit or replaces on right side.
