    Hey guys. I was wondering if I could get a ztr for around $5000. I am looking at getting a 50" or somewhere near there. I like Dixie Choppers but i was wondering if you know where I could get a ztr for around $5000???

    I wouldn't touch a 5k ZTR for commercial use. Why don't you use the 5k as a down payment, finance the rest and buy a full out commercial mower. It will be cheaper in the long run anyway.

    Look aroud for a last year's leftover or a demo. I agree, you probably won't get much machine for less than $5g... That said, I bought my Super Surfer for $4500 brand new ( it was a left over). It's a 52" 22hp machine. I really don't want to sugest that you go into hock to invest in a new mower, however, five grand would be a lot down on just about anything.. Just to give you hope, I'll give you an example, My closest DC dealer had/has an extreme mowchine 30hp 60" demo that has/had ( I don't know if he still has it) 30 hrs on it, that he'd have sold to me for $7200. $2200 wouldn't be much to finance for a machine that productive ( if you needed something that size ) . Point I'm saying is there are deals to be had, you just gotta look pretty hard sometimes...

    I hope I helped you....Good Luck

    would never buy used!your getting something that someone dont want.theres a reason they dont.if you have 5k buy new.just my opinion.nothing like the smell of new paint burning off the muffler.

    Thanks guys. I talked to my dixie chopper dealer and he gave me a price of $5889 for a 50" Silver Eagle with delux seat. I guess I will just have to finance it or wait longer. AND If anyone has a used 50" ztr I would be very interested in buying it.

    Too bad you're in PA, I'd sell you my Super Surfer 52".. For a nice deal.
