What do you guys think about riding mowers versus zero turns. Thinking of buying a 48 inch john deer or husqavana riding mower. They are less than 2200 versus a 48 inch exmark or scag for $5000-$7000.

Well, I have a lot of stuff to mow around, so the price delta quickly gets eaten by time savings.

Now you said husq riding mower. Are you talking about a residential lawn mower? Wouldn't use a residential mower for anything as a commercial unit.

Go with a ztr if you have the cash! Back when I lived in the U.S. I moved from a 1 acre property to a 3 acre property. The 1 acre used to take me an hour and a half. with no obsticles but the fence. The 3 acres had over 30 oak trees on it. took me almost 5 hours to cut with huskee 42" mower. Bought a 60" hustler ztr. 1hour ten minutes. I had money back then. LOL.

What money you save on the others will be eaten in time and break downs. Buy a commercial Z. You will never regret it.
