    It's almost the same. $2200 for a mower and $2,500 hundred for a well used truck .

    When I decide to sell my truck. I will make sure it will cost more than the mower and look better too. My mower looks better with the chicks then my old truck. :realmad: :realmad:

    Truck, you need something reliable that can get you and all your gear around easily. Don't want to be worried about breakdowns or overloading the vehicle.

    Well, I would have to say that at this point, one ZTR is "worth" more than my truck.

    But that does not matter to me in the least.
    It looks acceptable and does it's job reliably...
    Which is getting me where I need to be to make money.
    Me and the equipment take care of the rest.

    Personally, I always have to snicker just a little when I see these big $40,000 trucks with a pricy, heavy duty, long tandem axle trailer.... and they are hauling one 36" walkbehind. Priorities in the wrong place....
