    Never owned a ZTR. Shopping for a 48" commercial grade with roll over protection. Looked in local shops and best local options are ferris 1500z and toro Z400. Both about $6000. Any advice!!!! Are these good options or should I look out of town for another mower. Thanks for any assistance..

    Hey hows it goin. I just purchased a 52" toro 500 ZTR brand new last week and love it. It does a great job. I demoed a few others one of which being the ferris 1500 and 2000 They both seemed like a great mower. Really the only reason that i went with the toro was because they were offering 0% for 36mo. I personally would go with the toro if i was going to get another one. I have a walkbehind from then and have had nothing but good luck with toro.
