I've posted ZTR questions before, and I've gotten some good advice...now to the meat of the matter...I just bought a 12 acre mini farm....most of it gentle slope...all of it needs mowed 1/week. There is also some light duty, OCCASIONAL "farm" stuff like grading the gravel driveway. I 've pretty much decided on a scag turf tiger 27 koh, 60" cut......but the possibility is also there for a JD compact utility tractor (2210) with a 60" finish mower. If I bought the JD, I could also get a box blade and other attachments to do the occasional "farm" stuff....If I go with the scag, as I understand it, I'll spend MUCH less time mowing the 12 acres...BUT HOW MUCH LESS?? How long would it honestly take to mow 12 acres of grass with the scag vs. the JD? And while I'm thinking about it...what height of grass would you feel comfortable mowing with a scag turf tiger...or other comparable ZTR? I wish I could buy both the scag & JD, but you know the story...$$$$...Thanks in advance!
