    I've had 2 John Deere 225s that were used for my business growing up. The one has over 2000 hours. Replaced engine at 1700.

    literally I'd rather throw $2000 on a used Scag with 980 hours and take my chances then to roll the dice on a brand new residential grade ztr.

    What about a SCAG LIBERTY z ..... think it's a 48" ? This one does have fabricated deck , z2800 hydro gear tranny for $4200. I don't need any deck bigger than a 48". I really appreciate your suggestions guys, it's gonna help. I think the most say , don't settle for a brand new $2800 residential ZTR, it won't hold up.

    I don't know much about the liberty-z so I'll let others weigh in,,, I like that you're thinking Scag though.

    I bought a brand new commercial 52" husqvarna last year and love it great all around machine. It cuts well when its wet and the price is very competitive.

    You would be better off with a good used commercial mower.
