I have a 2002 Toro Zmaster 44 inch deck. I bought this used about 18 months ago. I had been part time until May 08 and thought it would last for a good while since I was PT. Now that I am FT, I feel like I am always buying parts. i dont mind fixing the mower, but sometimes the timing is bad. It seems like the dealer never has all the parts I need, so they have to order them. I make due though. I do have a 36 inch Exmark Metro I bought new as a back-up. Very well maintained mower. I can't really afford a new mower now, but when do you call a mower USED UP?
