I did some price checking today and now the mowers that I think would be best are
Scag Freedom Z 52" with BS motor.
Hustler Fastrak SD 54"
Ferris is700z 52"
Gravely ZT-HD 52" (farthest dealer)
Those are all under the 6500 price range with Huster being right at the top of it.
Will there truly be any difference between them that effect durability?
Also I live in Southern Illinois and the grass is growing out of control at the moment. Really don't want to rush any of them but will need one very soon since I have nothing at the moment.
