All I recently went through my first ZTR purchasing process. Had no idea what to get, but thanks to all of you got some great ideas, info and input. I'm going to be using the machine on my own lawn, no commercial. I cut 1 acre weekly and 4 acres on occasion. I ended up with a 2004 EverRide Warrior. 25 HP Kawi and a 60" deck. It has 460 hours and a bagger. Price - $4500 plus tax. The machine had been well serviced and seems great. Already did one cut with it. What a time saver. I had some concerns from some of the posts about hydros and belts on the EverRide. However, after conversations with EverRide and the dealer I found that the hydro problem was with HydroGear (and effected several manufacturers) and when there was a problem Hydrogear took care of them. Also the belt material was an issue an has since been changed. Thanks again for the help.
