Out of those choices Bad-Boy, but I have a Toro it may not look as cool as the bad boy but parts are easy to get and the cut is amazing.

Go with whatever brand has the best dealer near you.

My vote goes to John Deere though.

Of the 3 mentioned, I would get the EverRide Warrior if you have a dealer close enough to suit you. All three brands should serve you well enough in the 2 year time period you mentioned and if you are then going to keep it for your personal use.

Demo them and see which you like the best and get a satisfactory deal on.

Take a Look at the new Husqvarna PZ. But they are all good just depends what you want and what your cutting. But husqvarna has not let me down.

I don't want to hijack the thread but have you had a chance to demo one of the new PZ models yet?

I did, but it was just some tall grass about 4 feet high at the end of the season. I am going to take it out again this spring and try it out on my manicured lawns.
