WHAT SHOULD I DO GUYS???? I have a new house that is 1.4 acres. it is flat for the most part, the front yard is slightly graded down and the side of the house has some elevation becuase the septic is built up onto a long plateu so there is a little 5 foot hill , but no crazy hills. I can get a 2008 Toro Timecutter Z4200 that a guy bought in May for $1500 that is in good shape. My other option is the buy a new John Deere Riding Tractor Mower in from the 100 series. How is the Toro Z4200? It has a Kohler engine. What should I do? nothing compares to a new mower but the ZTR mowers are supposed to perform great. thanx.
