Well, it's been an interesting few months. Anyway, I've gone from having to mow 3+ acres (sometime 4+) once a week to about 1.5 acres once a week. Plus, before I had some trees to contend with, now I have very few, and the ground is pretty flat. I was pretty much sold on a Hustler Fastrak and was just waiting to get the right deal, and the money together. But, now I'm rethinking that. I don't know if I need to spend $4500 to $5000 for a Hustler Fastrak. I've looked for a used ZTR for months now and it's a tough market. I really don't know much about the machines to decipher a good deal, plus they are just hard to come by. So, now I am thinking of going the tractor route. I really don't want to spend over $2000 for a tractor. Any recommendations for tractors under $2k? I really don't need a bunch of attachments either. By the way, I've thought about a walkbehind, but honestly, I just don't have the time and sometimes my 72 year old father spends some time at my place and cuts the grass for me just to keep busy. A walkbehind is just not something I can even consider. Thanks in advance.
