    OK HERE IS THE DEAL...I HAVE TWO WALKBEHIND MOWERS A NEW 48
    AND A OLDER 61 THAT I KEEP AS A SPARE. AS I PICKUP MORE ACCOUNTS I NOW HAVE THE NEED FOR A RIDER. BUT CANT SWING THE 6000 BUCKS OR SO FOR A NEW ZTR. IF I WANTED TO SINK SAY 2500 INTO A GOOD USED RIDER WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR. ARE THE THREE WHEEL JOBS WORTH LOOKING INTO? I THINK A 61 INCH DECK IS A MUST........ANY IDEAS????

    You might take your walk behinds and the 25hundred
    to a dealer Then get a cheap gate mower until you can get
    another good walk behind.
    As far as what to look for ,spindles ,black or white
    smoke etc.Im sure some with a lot of time in on
    ztr s can tell you other things.As far as the
    deal i mentioned above .Just saying it might be a
    way to make it happen if you want it bad enough.
