    Has anybody heard anything good about Husqvarna ZTR commercial mowers? I'm looking at getting one, proablly a 48" maybe a little smaller.
    Thanks for the help.

    Very decent mowers quality wise but their cutting decks suck! The Tunnel Ram deck is a joke!

    I have 2 one 48" with a 21 hp and a 52" with a 23 hp. The 48" I bought last year and it has been great. 400 hrs with no problems. The 52" I bought about 3 weeks ago. 40 hrs. The 52 has the tunnel ram deck and it cuts great. I really cant tell the difference between the tunnel ram and the older deck. Both mower have been great so far.

    I buy my mowers based on

     how close the dealer is to my house.
     how much the dealer values the dollars I spend there.
     how quickly they can get parts.
     how quickly they make repairs.

    The Husqvarna I have produces lawn of the month every time. But the dealer tries to keep the mower for a long time for minor repairs.
    Based on this I am sticking with Ex-mark and John Deer where the dealers run very efficient operations and treat customers right.

    another thing to think about is 99% of the mowers on the market have gone through years of R&D. So atleast 99% of these mowers are high quality and have the capability of doing the job at hand if used as advised. Find a mower that fits what you need. And has the components on it that suit the conditions it will be working in.:weightlifter:
