    here's what you need, though its a 72 inch:<p>http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=284602236<p>It didnt sell, maybe you can contact the owner and make a deal.<p>Bill
  3. If it runs its a deal at $2K but it weights<br>1715 lbs dry and my trailer is 65&quot; I.D.

    lawrence, why dont you consider even a used ztr for like 3500. it will make your big mowing jobs like athletic feilds so much easier and faster.
  5. I mow in high gear at 5.2 mph with my present 62&quot; deck mated to a 18 hp v-twin kohler. That's a good<br>2 1/2 acres an hour. As far as going any faster the quality of cut will suffer.<br>You have to remember I am cutting the fields<br>in season at 1 1/2 inches (mostly bluegrass)<br>in one pass and there is no noticable clippings.<p>I would rather not buy someones problem mower<br>(ZTR) for I have two good 16HP kohler twin<br>traction units that can handle a 62&quot; deck.<p>Has far as being easier I have come to know<br>and love my standard sit down toro sulky or<br>I can change to a stand on turf rider in one<br>minute.<p>I don't want to spend a lot of money I just<br>want to put a machine togeather to back up<br>the 62&quot; I have in service.

    I dont know if others have this problem, but I find that ztr riders are very uncomfortable for me to use. I tried folding my 6-4 275 lb frame on one of them, I prefer to walk thank you.<p>Bill
