I am looking at buying a new mower for the 2012 season. I have it narrowed down to either a John Deere or Hustler. I am looking to spend around $5,000. For that amount of money, I can get a lightly used few year old John Deere 727A or a lightly used John Deere Z830A, both with under 300 hours. Or I can buy a new Hustler Fastrak. The Hustler would have a warranty and the dealer is only about 5 miles from me. The nearest John Deere dealer is about 25 miles and I would have to drive that far for parts and/or repairs. Personally, I have always heard good things about John Deere even though I have never owned one. Which one do you guys think would be better? Or is there anything you think would be better than both?
