I've look all over the web & this is by far the most informative site Ive found but after all the reading I still havent answered my own question. So I thought I would ask the pros. I am a homeowner with 3 &1/2 acres of flat level ground. Im going to buy a ztr mower mostly for the time cutting. My question is should I buy a homeowner grade mower like Toro, Simplicity, etc. or spend 1500 2000 more & get a commercial grade mower? I do not plan on mowing commercially but I will be mowing my Mothers yard (she has about the same acreage). I would rather spend the extra money now than have to work on it later. Would it be worth the extra or is homeowner grade good enough for what I have to mow? If its worth the extra what mower would you suggest? Thanks for your help.
