Cub Cadet ZTR at Home Depot

What are your thoughts on the Cub Cadet ZTR at Home Depot?

http://www.homedepot.com/prel80/HDUS...glm.0&MID=9876

I own a property management business and I decided to offer landscaping to the public since I do it for the properties I manage. I got 15 commercial accounts (banks) most have one small strip of grass, but a few a pretty big. As of this minute I can only afford one lawnmower. Do I go with the ZTR Cub Cadet and buy the extended warrenty, or buy a 48" Ferris belt drive walk behind for the same price.

Thanks for any advice!

Sure, buy the extended warranty.. waste even more money. No Warranty is going to be valid as you will be using it for commercial use.. people..

Thanks for your wise A$$ response,

I asked a question because I wasn't sure, I have zero landscaping experience. I see a Cub Cadet ZTR for $5000 at

http://www.cubcadetcommercial.com/we...85856_33803_-1

I wasn't sure the difference between the 3k and the 5k, or to get a walk behind. I heard ZTR save a ton of time.

i looked at these one time to get me by for a season or 2 but . the best thing you can do is go to a service center or warranty center for them and look at how many of them are there for repair .also if you see one with the deck off you can realy see what they are made of. it will make you turn around and never go back.

I apologize for being a smart a$$ at that time of night. Thought maybe since you were looking at the extended warranty, that you had read it and saw that it did not apply to commercial use.
