New member. Have farm as well as manage 4 properties. Bush Hog most of farm, but mow about 4 acres of hilly, somewhat rocky yard from April to October. Properties are flat 1 acre that require less maintenance. I'm hard on equipment, ran a rocksolid 1856 Cub Cadet for 20 years & it's about dead. Dealers in my (rural) area: Scag, Toro, Exmark, CubCadet ; Farther are Gravely & Ferris, but know nothing about them. Looking to stay under $6k Have priced the Scag Freedom 48" w/21 HPBriggs,Stratton for $5400; Toro Titan Zx5480 w/ 23HP Kawasaki for $5400 any suggestions greatly appreciated!
