Which Brand Zero Turn Mower

The New models coming out, What is your Thinking on them?

From the 42" up models.

Haven't seen the new Raptor SD, just vocal input , so far. But from that,

there is direction, it is the Sport, Since the Sport, will not be available, next

year.

Awaiting your thinking.

Thanks,

B

Thanks for your reply,

I am 76 years old, and have never used these type of movers ( Zero-Turn).

And I wanted to get some of you Pro's thoughts.

No, No, I don't want opinions on all those. 42" to 52" is fine.


Thanks,

B.

To help us narrow down some good zero turns for you, what is the price range you would like to be in?

Low end commercial zero turns start around $5k. For around 3k you will be looking at high end homeowner machines. There is a homeowner forum here that has a ton of info on machines in that price range.

I don't think you can buy anything worth having in a zero turn for 3k.

Have you narrowed down your search yet? Each manufacturer is going to have something like 5 or 6 different models that accept decks in the 42" - 52" range…That's a lot of machines to get opinions on.

I have looked at Hustler and Gravely. I haven't driven either one.

I have not looked at Toro. It is like a kid in a candy store Ha!, so many to see.

I Really Thank you, for taking your time on this, Being in the "Know" is a Big

Asset.

Thanks,

B.

For what it's worth, I have a Hustler X-One with a 60" deck and I'm very pleased with it.

Good luck with your search.
