So I need a new zero turn. I don't need anything huge. Big doesn't fit my business and I'm not going to buy big in hopes of one day needing it. I also refuse to buy used. I currently have a Toro Timecutter 42" and am looking at getting a 48-52. I looked at Toro, Gravely, Bobcat, Exmark and Simplicity and narrowed it down to the Exmark Pioneer 48" or the Simplicity ZT4000 48" The Pioneer is $5400 and the ZT4000 is $5000. What I liked about the Simplicity was the ride, height adjustment and cut. What I didn't like was the 90 day/1year warranty. What I liked about the Pioneer was the engine, Kaw FR651V and the 1year warranty. I did not like the ride, height adjustment, cut was ok and the plastic spindle covers and plastic discharge chute which felt cheap to me. I would only put 3-4 hrs a week on this mower. The Toro I currently have still runs like a top the deck is another story. Thats why I am looking. I would like to hear from anyone who has run or is currently running a Simplicity. The dealer also sells Ferris and he said this mower is a IS500Z with different decals. I looked at pictures online and they look identical. My reasons for not choosing the others were Toro and Gravely I did not like the mower in my price point. The Bobcat dealer kept steering me towards bigger mowers even after I told him they were too big for me and my needs. I might go look at a Hustler Fastrak tomorrow but you guys can save me if I am going to pay more than $5400.
