    What you guys thinking about the sears craftman zero turning mower. It's 18 hp and 50 in deck. Is it good commercial mower? The price is $3299.88. Any thing good compare to this. I am looking for a smaller deck with 42 or 48in.

    Take your $3300 and buy a commercial walk behind. This craftsman will be underpowered and a piece of sh!t.

    My neighbor has one for is on home... It broke down like a week after he had it..... They gave him a new... Sears is pretty good about warranty work and backing there products..... I still think its a POS..... for that much you can get a nice year old TTHP

    PLEASE put that money on a walkbehind or a used ZTR. DO NOT waste your hard earned money on a Craftsmen ZTR mower.......

    The Hustler Fastrak now has a one year or (400 hour) commercial warranty, four year residential on the mower if your looking for a small ztr. It comes in 44 and 52 inch decks with honda,kohler options. Check them out if you have a dealer locally. there is a good financing deal now also, no interest or payments until January 2006.

    I decided to drop the crapsman from my list. What you guys think about the Toro mowers. Which is one better the the Timecutter Z series or the ZX series. Looks like the Timecuuter Z series are very reasonable price for the 18hp.

    Buy A fastrak. If you only need to cut 10 - 20 lawns, the fstrak will be perfect. I demoed a walker and I instantl decided to get it because I'm looking for more costomers. However if your the only operator and your cutting 10-20 per week then the fastrak will be perfect.
