Hello all - I just found this forum, I have a smaller yard of my own to mow, but am considering taking on a few 1 -4 acre commerical properties next year in addition to my current job. This would help pay for a good semi-commercial mower and provide a little more income overall. I'll have many questions related to this in later posts. I've already started searching in this area. Now - the unit I have in mind. A local Grasshopper/Ferris/ExMark dealer has a used Woods 6250 with around 1100 hours on it. It's a little older, probably a '94 or '95, (metal fuel tank, not plastic) seems solid but isn't perfect cosmetically. All the filters have been recently changed, the engine runs well but was a little rough on a cold start - it was a few weeks since anyone had run the unit. 61" deck, bar tires, and avaliable for just under $2k. I would prefer a diesel (6215) but I've not found one of those (Or a Grasshopper 721D) for under $4k. For perspective, he also has a slightly older 5140 with the 16 HP Briggs and no hourmeter for $100 less. I think the Kubota 3-cyl water cooled gas would be the way to go, unless it's hard to get parts for this unit. How are they overall for servicing? In the past, I have owned two cone-drive Dixon ZTR's and have run Briggs powered Grasshoppers on occasion. Driveline problems on the Dixons aside, I don't think I could bear to own a Non-ZTR mower again.
