    I am a homeowner with a half acre at my house and a half acre vacant lot. I have a 22" toro and want to get a ztr because I spend way too much time mowing. The vacant lot is pretty rough land and long grass, I only cut it once per month.

    I know there are different grades of ztr's. I want something that is rugged enough for the vacant lot, but will also do a nice job at my house.

    I was wondering if I would beat up a residential grade mower too much with the vacant lot and if I should get a step up from residential grade. It seems like you can get a good used commercial mower from the same price as a new residential mower. Maybe I only need a mower that is a step up from residential like a Hustler FasTrak.

    Any thoughts or recommendations would be great. Thanks.
