    I am either going:

    Cub Cadet Enforcer 48" or Toro Z Master 48-52"

    Are there blaring differences? There are 2 Cadet dealers close to me to 1 Toro.

    Let me know what one you would choose.

    john deere is the only way to go. i have a GT 245 (tractor style) and a 717-A zero turn............but that is just my opinion. i bleed yellow and green. my only regret about the zero turn is that i didn't buy it sooner.

    It really comes down to dealer support IMO. What kind of prices are you getting for either machine?

    I don't know about prices yet, they are having some sale next month. I am pretty sure both are in the $5500 range.

    you need to demo the machines to really find out which you like better. i have heard good and bad about both machines. but thats the same thing with every machine on the market, theres no perfect mower, its all opinions. so if you can go to your local dealers and ask about demoing the units.
