I am thinking about one of these for my first commercial zero turn. What do you guys think about them? Are they tough enough for commercial use.? Like 300 hours a year.? Any of you guys running these? Is the 200 series a better investment?

I'm thinking the major difference in the 100 and 200 is the transaxle? I believe the 100 has a 3400, and the 200 a 5400. There were some good things said about the 3400 in another thread a day or two ago, but I have a tendency to think tougher is better. If the 200 series is within the budget, I'd probably go with the heavier model, but I have no doubt the 100 will handle commercial use as well. It might also depend upon what type of mowing you do. If you are mowing only established, maintained lawns, then a lighter mower will likely do fine. If, however, you often do overgrown or extremely hilly/rough properties, I'd go with the 200 series.

looks like the difference in the 152 and 252 is about 1000 bucks. both are within my budget
