I need a ztr to cut 2 flat 3/4 of an acre lawns. I will be using it for two years and then giving it to my mother so she can cut her yard. I am moving away. I am trying to stay in a reasonable price range and size. I will be buyin a much larger mower in 2 years, so I would like to get something good for my mom and me the next 2. I am lookin at the Ariens 1440, 1540, and 1640. They are in price range I cant spend more then 2700. I have also looked at the cub 17hp 44in deck and the white 22hp and 50 inch deck. I liked the white just a little big for my mother she is 5ft tall. I am open to any ideas I am just having trouble finding crediable info on models in the price range of 2000 to 3000. Everything is for the higher end models. Thanks again for your time.
