Mower decision

Hello all, new to the site and also new to the mowing business. Me and a buddy are starting up this spring cutting lawns in near by towns. We are concentrating on residential only, 1/2 acre to 1 acre lots. We are looking to purchase our first mower together. We are looking at either a Dixon ZTR 44 inch cut with a 20 hp honda and bagger or a Ferris 1500 48 inch cut with a Kaw motor and bagger. The Ferris is a 05 for around4000 and the Dixon is around 4500 without bagger. We are looking new with a 0% interest rate that we can pay off in a year. What are your opinions on these two mowers? Do you think we should buy used for the first year or go new with this financing option? thanks for all your help on this site.

Go with the Ferris. Used equip is almost always a good route to go for your first year and Ferris is an excellent machine.
