I value all of your opinions so please help. I want to buy the best mower for my own lawn, it is less than an acre of blue grass in town. I like to ride not walk and i am not affraid to spend the money for a quality cut. I water my lawn and it is relitivly flat. I want to be able to bag but not all the time since i have to haul away the clippings.
I have looked at laser hp,hustler mini z and a walker. They all seem to be very heavy will they make ruts in my lawn? Any recommendations?

The Hustler will work awesome for you.

The Mini Z will fit your needs but may be over kill for 1 acre.
The FasTrak may be a better choice for you.
Here are your FasTrak and Mini Z prices.
You can get catchers for both also. (sidemount for both and soon a rear mount for the Mini Z and Super Mini Z)
All units will give you the best cut you can buy also.
Demo one before the end of this season.
Are you working with Miller Mowerz ??

The best mower is the hustler super z, you should be able to get one for under $8500 dollars. If you are using it for a 1 acre yard and you want to bag it you can mount a walk behind steel bagger ( grass gobbler) to your z for under 3 hundred dollars. I don't have any problems with rutting but I go in different directions every week, north south one week and east west the next week. I can guarantee you that you will never have to buy another mower ever again because I cut more grass in a day than you will in a year and mine is still going strong.
