If you had to start again, with all your experience w/equipment, what ztr mower would you buy? If you had a choice between 54" and 60"? Exmark, Hustler SuperZ, Toro Z-Master, JD? What experiences have you had with each/any of these?

I have done it all over again.

Had 20 employees, now I am solo with help when needed.

Had 6 trucks, 4 trailers, 15 weed eaters, 15 BP blowers, 3 WB mowers, 7 Scag ZTR's 3 JD F935, 2 JD 755, and a bunch of other stuff.

I love solo! But I will grow just a little more to keep it interesting. Oh and I am in a much better mood most days.;)

All over? Never buy a Z...just run all WB's w/velkies too.

Profit margin is too small for the investment.

I have done it before, this time I have mostly Hustler z's. The 52 works well for our applications.

been mowing this season with a 60" Lazer.
