Hello all, just looking for some opinions. I am looking to buy either a rzt50 or maybe one of the z-force series lawnmowers and would like to hear some pros and cons. I am a homeowner mowing a little better than 1 acre fairly flat and a few trees and other obstacles. Love the commercial grade stuff, just can't justify the $ for my use. Thanks for the info.

did you make a decision on your mower

i know this is months off from your original question, but did you ever decide on a mower or get any feedback on one of the two you asked about?

It's like this if you are mowing a flat easy property with no ruts and jarring the mower they will hold up some but they have a cheap deck not deep to handle thick grass,it all depends what you are mowing and your cost how much are you wanting to spend.

You may want to look at a good commercial walk behind for the price you are looking to spend. More bang for the buck. Get a velke and go.
