ZTR Who has More users? Homeowner vs Commercial

So how many ZTR users up here are homeowners and how many are commercial users?

I think this would be an interesting thread. You would think there would be more commercial users, but residential ZTR's have been a huge hit. With Homeowners looking to find commercial qualtiy at homeowner prices mowers Like Toro's Timecutter and Titan, Exmark's Quest, Scag's Freedom Z, Hustler's Sport, MiniFastrak, and Fastrak, John Deere's EZTrak and ZTrak, Bad Boy's ZT Series, and many others.All mower's ranging from $2999.99-6,000.

So if you own a Commercial mower or a Residential model. State the model and what brand. Show pics. Have fun with it show off your ZTR's.

We use ours for commercial use, John Deere Z425 with upgraded 9 guage 54. We have very hilly terrain here and we had a Toro Z400 and it could not hold the hills. So this past year we went with the Deere Ez Trak and holds hills excellent. Ive heard people on this forum saying they are a Home depot machine and would never handle commercial use. We have been using Deere for years and wanted to give it a shot. Supprisingly it has a faster ground speed than the z400. ran them sise by side. And at $4000.00 from our dealer for a brand new machine that I made sure I put through its paces it is still performing like new. 500 hard hrs and never been in the shop. I am impressed and would recommend this machine, Even though its not one of the top commercial mowers.

Just for the record anything more than your own yard is Considered Commercial Use on this thread. So if your using your ZTR for anything other than your own yard will be considered Commercial Use. The goal is to see who Purchases more ZTR's homeowners or professionals.

I'm guessing commercial will win here. This is a commercial website not really for the home owner although they do stop by.
