    Hello all. Has any one delt with the new Craftsman Professional ZTR. They look pretty heavy duty? Also has 27hp Briggs. I currently use 3 60" Dixies.:usflag: One 18hp, one 27hp, and one 33hp. These are a little to much for some of the small jobs that I do.

    No, but all craftsman has gone way down hill in the past 10 years, most is cheap crap, with craftsman stickers on it. Even if it was decent...what abouot parts and service?

    I think I will just stick to the good stuff. More money but less headache.:hammerhead:

    If you're considering a Craftsman over a Dixie then you need to re-examine what you're doing. I would check out Dixie's smaller Silver Eagle series for smaller mowers. They are competetively priced with Craftsman.

    I was at Sears today and saw some of their so called "professional equipment" and wasn't impressed at all ... the machines I saw had stamped decks, not fabricated, to start with !! Stay away from it, it looks like equipment that hold up over the long term !!
