I have been zero turn mower shopping for about 2 months now, and I cannot decide on what mower to buy. I am a home owner that will be mowing a somewhat bumpy 3 acres. I have been looking at 2010 models of the the following mowers, and I have test driven them, but I am having a hard time deciding. If anyone has any input, I would greatly appreciate it. Especially if you have any solid negative information about any experience you have had with these machines. I am trying to stay under $8,000. I have been looking at a 61" cut Simplicity Citation with 28 HP Briggs and Stratton Vanguard Big Block engine, a Exmark Laser Z AS with a 60" Ultra Cut deck and 27 HP Kohler, and a 500 LCE Toro with 60 " cut and 27 HP Kohler engine. The simplicity rides the smoothest because of the suspension. I could not tell much of a difference in the cut of any of them, but it was only a test drive. If I get the suspension seat on the Toro and Exmark, I would be looking at a total cost of about $800-$900 more on these than the Simplicity. Is there a reason I don't see a lot of commercial guys using simplicity? I thought it was the same as a Ferris. Maybe they are not nearly as durable as a Toro or Exmark. IF you have any advice, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
