Lets start from the beginning, I have 20 acres and I mow about 6 acres of it with my John Deere 850 with a 72" rotary finish mower. It takes me at least 6 hours to mow. I have a lot of stuff to go around but nothing is a tight fit. My yard is not perfectly flat but it is not rough. I have been wanting to get rid of the the rotary because maneuvering around obstacles is not very easy with that long setup and a manual steer tractor. I also seem to spend more time working on it than using it. Yesterday I was at my local exmark/stihl/echo dealer picking up some parts for my ATV and he mentioned that he had a 'smoking deal' on a late '08 leftover. It is a Exmark Lazer Z with the 72" Triton deck and 35Hp Vanguard. He wants $8800 for it. Does this sound like a good deal? I looked at it and it is completely unused with no hours on it. I know this would be a little of overkill for my use, but I may pickup a few of the neighbor's yards. My grass is Bermuda and St. Augustine close to the house and Bahia in the front yard (used to be pasture) and some in the back.
