I am looking at a budget between $3-4K and was wondering what your suggestions might be for the purchase of a new ZTR might be. It will be used strictly for personal use early on, but I will gradually ease my way into the business. I'm really interested in the Ariens models and the Hustler mini Fastraks have caught my attention. I saw that Hustler is having a nice rebate on the Fastrak to bring it just above the limit I was hoping to not go above, but the voices in my head tell me to buy that and never look back. What other ZTR's in the range should I consider? I'm looking for a 36-44" deck or so and 15-17 HP will be plenty for me. The cost of the Fastrak($4399 after rebate)would be an absolute maximum I'd be willing to spend. Thanks for any other suggestions in this range I should take a look at.
