    Keep in mind that unit looks like it has a stamped deck and is not anywhere near the same class as the Lazer or any other commercial Z mower. Also, the warranty is limited to 120hrs. That will override the 3 years (even if you were to try and pass it off as residential usage). What brands have a local dealer near you? If you still want a Cub, go and look at a commercial model at your dealer. That unit at TSC isn't designed for anything more than a homeowner using it once a week.

    Don't be fooled...There is ALOT of difference. Research pumps, hydro motors, spindles, bearings, and the list goes on and on. A true commercial mower is built to cut grass all day - EVERY day. These machines aren't even close. there are guys on here that have worn those machines out in a season.

    That is straight up a residential unit... if you want something durable for a good price, look at hte more affordable tank they just came out with called the Recon

    I would buy an Exmark WB if I couldnt afford the Exmark ZT. Maybe a Wright Stander. I just wont settle for so so when buying a mower.
