Ive been shopping for a ZTR and the absolute most I can spend is $6000. What do you recommend? I currently have a Hustler 19/52 Mini Z with a Kawasaki engine. This mower is new and list is $7799.00, but it has an $1800.00 rebate which makes it $5999.00. I am also testing out a Cub Cadet M48 Tank. It is a loaner from the dealer to his commercial accounts when their mower is in the shop. It has 36 hours on it, and you can definitely tell its been used. It also has the 19 hp Kawasaki engine for $5000.00. Is 19 hp really enough for a 52 ZTR? Locally we have a dealer for John Deere, Snapper, Kubota, Skag, Bush Hog, Hustler, and a Cub Cadet/Exmark dealer. Are there any other mowers I should consider before making my decision? I will probably buy tomorrow, but could put it off for a few days to make sure I get the best mower for the money. Once again, my ABSOLUTE max is $6000. I have been reading this site a lot trying to make a decision, but would appreciate any suggestions you could offer. Thanks in advance for all your help.
