Who makes an inexpensive, but quality 36" ZTR?

I'd like a 36" or so ZTR for some smaller yards we have. I know gravely has a 34, but I'm curious about the rest. And what are their MSRPS's? Ive never looked at such small ZTR's

I'd probably end up buyign used if I can find the right one

Exmark has one but it looks kind of weird.

Toro, Exmark, Hustler, Scag, Bobcat. They all make 34/36" ZRT mowers. One thing about the small ZRTs is that they don't handle hills all that well compared to larger ZRTs. If you have hills you need to mow, you do best with a walk-behind.

Hmm, that depends on the operator. For many people the T-bar is the best gear drive controls on the market. Easy to use and easy on your hands/wrists/arms.

They make a Mini Z 36/42. I think the decks similar design, but it's a commercial unit.

I know a guy who bought Hustlers 36" ZTR...I think its called a FastTrak. He was a walkbehind guy for years. He really likes it.
