    i may be asking this in the wrong forum but i'll give it a shot. i just bought a house that has 3.1 acres on it and i have been shopping around for mowers and decided to go with a ztr. i don't want to spend a lot of money on one ($4000 or less) and so i have been looking at used commercial ztrs and new residential ztrs. my question is this. i found a hustler super z 72inch ztr with 650 hours on it for $3990. or should i get a new cub cadet or similar 50inch for $2900 to $3900???

    if you dont think that a 72 in is too big then i would go for the hustler. 650hrs is nothing for a commercial ztr. Last a lot longer that a new res. mower!

    I think the 72" will work out fine and you'll get done mowing quicker
