    The New models coming out, What is your Thinking on them?

    From the 42" up models.

    Haven't seen the new Raptor SD, just vocal input , so far. But from that,

    there is direction, it is the Sport, Since the Sport, will not be available, next

    year.

    Awaiting your thinking.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for your reply,

    I am 76 years old, and have never used these type of movers ( Zero-Turn).

    And I wanted to get some of you Pro's thoughts.

    No, No, I don't want opinions on all those. 42" to 52" is fine.


    Thanks,

    B.

    To help us narrow down some good zero turns for you, what is the price range you would like to be in?

    I am sure, that the prices in your area, are higher, just guessing.

    3K is my top. Hope to get something below that, But ??

    Thanks,

    Have you narrowed down your search yet? Each manufacturer is going to have something like 5 or 6 different models that accept decks in the 42" - 52" range…That's a lot of machines to get opinions on.

    Low end commercial zero turns start around $5k. For around 3k you will be looking at high end homeowner machines. There is a homeowner forum here that has a ton of info on machines in that price range.

    Here is 49 pages of info to help a homeowner with choosing a zero turn mower for home use.

    There is a big difference in both price & quality between what professionals use to service their residential clients (what this forum is dedicated to) and what homeowners use to cut their lawns.

    I don't think you can buy anything worth having in a zero turn for 3k.

    I have not looked at Toro. It is like a kid in a candy store Ha!, so many to see.

    Asset.

    Thanks,
