    Can someone recommend a compact z-turn in the $3000-3500 range? I will mostly be doing residential properties, moving eventually to commercial. I appreciate any help you guys and gals can give.

    3000-35000 range would be a used comercial ztr. New, about the only machine you can get would be a home-owner grade zero turn. Toro, husqvarna, craftsman, cub cadet, troy-bilt make em.
    The toro (while it don't hold up great) holds up the better then the rest! IMO

    you could probably get a gravely 34z for about 4k, or maybe some good deals on last years stock. but if all else fails ariens makes a good heavy duty ZTR geared for home-owners but is built like a tank.
