Which machine would you buy?

Hello folks,

Currently I'm considering buying a 2010 Ferris Hydrocut, 36" 15hp Kaw with 50 hrs, a 2005 Simplicity Champion, 44" deck, 18 hp Kohler with 400 hrs, or a new Toro Timecutter, 42", 21.5 Kaw vtwin (ss4260).

Ferris walk behind: 1800.00
Simplicity zero turn: 1600.00
New Toro Timecutter: ~3k

Good dealer support for all nearby. Three year warranty on the Toro.

I have 1/2 acre with one 10* slope for about 20 yds, numerous trees and beds. Believe it or not the walk behind is longer than the zero turn; storage in shed is limited. I am fit but would like to use a dethatcher, light aerator, and a leaf sweeper occasionally.

As for other mfgs; 3k is my limit, no other dealers nearby.

If I had my druthers I would get a new Wright Stander or a Toro Grandstand. As I am not wealthy and do not mow commercially that's not going to happen.

Please choose or let me know of others I may be leaving out.



Mods-- please move if in incorrect thread-- thanks!
