    I am starting back into a part time lawncare (mow & blow), and I will be buying a new z-turn. I have most of the other equipment already but want to replace my encore z. I use this on my 3 acre lawn as well so I would be buying it anyway. I see a lot of opinions on different types of machines and I know everyone has their own favorites, but is it more important have a good local dealer/service center and pick my second choice in mower, or pick first choice and have to drive 50 minutes every time I need something done.

    As long as both mowers your looking at are good commercial quality machines go with the local dealer. What brand does your dealer sell ?

    Some on this site love their cub tanks but my preference would be the Hustler. I think its a better overall machine.
