The ground is mostly reclaimed ground and is pretty rough. Two questions, can someone give me a decent idea of the value of the Toro and then what would be a recomendation for a zero turn mower of about 60" that would be less rough to ride on this ground. There are some trees and ditches but no steep ground
Have looked at Scag, Badboy, Gravely, Hustler, Ferris, and even Dixie Chopper a little, have not demoed any of them on actual mowing conditions.
What is the best bang for the buck and the smoothest rider for the money?
Thanks for any feedback and help.
