    What is the best zero turn mower on the market? I have heard Grasshopper but wanted to ask some people who really know. I am new to this site and i'm sure it is a great place to learn.

    Be sure you demo several before you buy. Trying mowers on your particular mowing conditions will yield one that works best for you.. Each guy on here will tell you the one he's on is the best, but he won't be mowing your accounts, you will. Find a good local reputable dealer, establish a working relationship and your ZTR problem is solved.

    easy, the new 500 series Toro with Turbo Force decks.

    I have the Z588E, 28hp EFI, suspension seat, 60'' deck which has the new adjustable flow control baffle, just to name a few high lights.

    Try a Hustler. Toughest and fastest mower I've ever used. And I've used them all!

    Well its actually the smallest they make.

    to name some

    50'' cut
    20 hp kohler
    8 mph cutting speed
    deluxe seat
    vt controls
    hydro cooler
    2 yr warranty

    I plan on trading it in the end of this year for the 28hp efi 60'' cut fully loaded 13 mph bla bla bla

    One thing i like about these mowers is they have fans on the hydro pumps and main spindle and ,the nicer ones have this thing were there is no side load on the shafts for the hydro system.

    I like it, and if i was to do it all over again the only other mower i would consider is a Hustler, But would most likely still get the chopper, the dealer is awsome.
