Any thoughts on this particular machine? I've read tons about the 50" and smaller, but relatively none on the 54". It seems to be a little better than the smaller Cub Cadet RZT's with a 25hp Kawasaki engine and Dual Hydro-Gear ZT 2800 transmission rather than the EZT. We have 6 acres of flat land/pasture of which I currently regularly mow 2 with lots of trees and other obstacles. I'd love to be able to use this machine to mow the remainder so I can quit having to pay $200 a pop for bushhogging. A local dealer has a new 2007 model on special for $2999 and it falls in our budget of $3500. Since we're avid Dave Ramsey followers, we'll be paying cash and financing a commercial mower is simply not an option. The dealer is 12 miles away and I also have 2 neighbors that work on engines/mowers in their spare time so any down time/problems could be taken care of quickly and I would also go to them for routine maintenance outside of what I am capable of doing. I'll be holding on to our current 12 year old Cub Cadet mower to use as backup and towing the lawn cart. Thoughts? Anything with this model I should be aware (or wary) of? What kind of wear & tear will a weekly mowing of 6 acres to to this level of equipment? Thanks in advance for your input. What a great forum!
