    I'm looking to buy a new 60" ztr and I was wondering what mower is the best bang for the bucks? I live in ohio and Grasshopper seems to be the best mower but for a 60" you will pay $10,000 for it and I don't have that, so any insight on cost and efficiency would be greatly appreciated. thanks ahead for any advice.

    I don't own a JD, but i have been looking at the ZTR's closly lately, and like what I see. I think you should at least take a look at one. Also, I am very confident you could get a 60" John Deere ZTR for less that $10,000.

    Yep! I can buy the 25hp 60" JD 757 all day long for $7,100.

    Still over a grand more than a Lesco equipped the same.
    But the JD is still good bang for the buck....
