    There is no best when buying used. Search and Try to buy a used commercial Z from a home owner instead of a lawn company selling used equipment. I have bought and have had good luck this way. Exmark Lazer Zero Turns have always been good to me. I have one with 3800 hours and one with 1200. I bought the one with 1200 hours on it used with 950 hours on it at the time. The only thing I have replaced is a 25.00 pto switch. The one with 3800 on it I bought new and it still has its original hydros and spindles. Buy a new trimmer and blower.
