    Does anyone have one? Is it anygood? I am in the market for a cheap zero-turn mower for my second season of mowing and wanted to know if this was a good choice. If not than want are some good ones for around the same price?

    My parents used to have a troybilt tractor 16hp w/ 48" deck. POS!!! Run, dont walk, Run as far away from that thing as you can. It never cut right from day one. and trying to find parts for the damn thing is one of the hardest things as Troybilt changed hands too many times.

    Save your money for a commercial ZTR. Not sure what setup you are currently running but I would look into a commercial WB such as a TTHP or something similar. Dont waste money on crap equipment.

    Well the thing is I'am just starting out and have NO money. I am 16, and just want something to be mowing like 25 yards a week. Is there anything that might be able to fit in my price range?

    Ok what about a John DeereĀ®
    25 HP V-Twin OHV 54" Yard Tractor 190C. We have ALOT of credit at Lowes and this is something else I was looking at.

    Anything from lowes wont stand up to commerical abuse, if you're doing this on a very very part time basis it might work out for you.

    Otherwise run from lowes.
