New here guys so be easy on me. I'm hoping to get your advise on choosing a new zero turn mower. I will be cutting approx 2 acres max, very few obstacles with some slope to it. I have been told I should consider a zero turn over a lawn tractor and was hoping I could get some input from all of you. I'd like to purchase a model that will last me for years and would like to avoid the box store zero turns if possible. I see there are so many different models out there and really like brands such as Toro, Ferris, Hustler, Bad Boy, etc. but money obviously factors into this and I really don't want to spend $5000 plus on a mower. What would you guys recommend in the $3000 range that is more than just a box store homeowner model. I'm hoping to get the most for my money. I sure appreciate all of your help.
