New Here--need opinions on ZTRs

Hi everyone,

I know this has been asked numerous times, so here we go again. I have about a $5000-6500 budget for a new ZTR, which brand is the best for the buck. I mow about 5-6 acres a week of mostly no hills type of properties with no need to transport. I have looked at DC, Hustler, Bad Boy, and Toro.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the help,
Scott

Drive them all and find a dealer who WILL remember you after the sale! Your application will allow you to look at just about every make so my advice is service after the sale!

For the amount of $ you have to spend, look at a snapper pro s150xt. The new snapper mowers are the best bang for the buck on the market right now IMO and they won't be this cheap forever

For that money I'd get a really nice stander instead of a bottom of the line Z, maybe even have some cash left over instead of barely making it happen, but that's just me.
