    Im looking for a commercial quality zero turn for my one acre yard and to cut a friends 13 development. Any recomendations on brands? Exmark? Scag? Hustler? John Deere? Dealers just seem to want to sell me whatever makes them more money.

    Yes and dollar for dollar there isnt another mower made that can stack up to it. The quality and cut is top notch. Check them out for yourself and see what you think before you write them off.

    SEARCH is your friend on here. This very question gets ask 10-20 times a week, so there are hours of reading on the subject if you just look for it.

    PLUS, remember the question you ask can REALLY only be answered by ones personal preference. It just like asking, which is the best truck, Ford, Chevy, or Dodge.

    Basically all the true commercial ZTR's have good and bad points, so Buy what YOU like and fits YOUR needs.

    Yes Cub Cadet Tanks. I have never used one, however everyone I have talked to that use them seem to like them. Also if you have a Lesco's in your area try the Lesco's brand. They are the same as Cub Cadet Tanks only green. IMO the best one depends alot on dealer support in your area. I own a Great Dane, there are a few people that do not like them. However I have a very good Great Dane dealer. I also like the Exmark and the Ferris ZTR's. Good luck in your search.

    One more thing, always demo the unit before buying. If the dealer doesn't let you demo the unit walk away.:drinkup:

    These guys are right. Buy from the dealer that will serve you best. All the commercial products on the market today are all pretty good. The dealer is what makes or breaks them.

    check finance program on Toro
    Toro dollar for dollar one of the best. Not as good as Turf
    Tiger but $1800.00 less and a great cut and great financing.

    Bobcat. Good prices, good features and you wont be paying for anything you don't need. I would look at a ZT-219 or even a fastcat.
