Henry, your pricing is way off, need to shop buddy!
Its sad when you can buy a kubota u17 excavator brand new, and it only cost 15 grand more than a mower. Probably make you more money to haha.
Don't know where you are getting your pricing , just got one for 36" .$5999.
Comparing equipment cost to $per hour income is interesting. A old class mate of mine just bought a new Cat 420D backhoe for less than $100 grand. He gets on average $100. per hour. When todays $9000 ztr would be able to show a average income around here of $70 per hour income.
Just bought a Lazer Z X series with 34 hp Kohler, 60" deck, Fancy seat, without bagger for 11k plus tax.
what's a joke is how the machines cost differently EVERYWHERE.
exmarks are the cheapest in price in my neck of the woods. not sure exactly what the 60" tt's are running but not that much. a price like that, I'm walking out with a ztr or standon.
just checked my local dealer. $6399 for the 60" tt.
Dealers here 4-5 years ago were 7500 for a 60" and 7300 or so for a 52"

What is the name of your dealer? Some of us might like to purchase our equipment through him.
ferris/ snapper pro 60" just as good as a TT and they are around 6 g's
LMAO at 10 grand for a W/B
And I think the thought of paying $6,000 for a 36" walk behind is nuts. I'd be willing to bet that you can get a Bobcat hydro 36" for at least $1,000 less than that.
