Trying to compare ztr prices on ebay as manufacturer websites dont have prices, was looking for decent sized deck size, So far for the cheapest ive found cub cadet 48" enforcer 21 hp kawasaki engine for $4399, I think the 44" is just a bit cheaper but the extra 4" are probably worth it. My business plan, a crew of 2 has 1 ztr and its ran about 1000 hrs a year, warranty is 2 years so I figure if I buy cheaper priced ztr after warranty is over I can pretty much just give them away. Whats the downside to the cheaper machines? I mean there under warranty so fixing them shouldent be a concern? I see speed is 1 downside but 95% of my customers are 1/8 acre lots so I probably dont need speed yet id take it if price isnt that much more. I rarely ever see a cub cadet being used.
