    I am currently watching two mowers on eBay as I would rather find a used mower than pay a bunch for a new one. Any advice or input would be appreciated especially from people who know about them or have used them. Thanks guys

    I was unsure if the John Deere is a commercial or not. My buddy has 2 grasshoppers and loves it so I was thinking of possibly going that route.

    well I have 70 accounts that I tend to. I need it for about 5 larger lots (1-3 acres) and then I do a produce plant that is around (3-4 acres)

    Will the 72 be too large on any of your accounts? If not, Id get the JD...Check with your local dealers, maybe they have used machines as well.

    yea i've already checked. Is that JD a good mower? I know that Lowe's and HD sell some ZTR deere's and I hear that they aren't the same as the real Deere's. Guess they are really made for residentials or something. Is that one a commercial? And no it's not too big for the accounts I have.
