    Hi, I have a Troy-Bilt LX lawn tractor. It is a 17 horse B & S with a 42 deck. I am looking for a zero turn of affordability. I have been looking at dixon and snappers but if you have any more information let me know. Thanx

    Stay away from those two!,
    Try looking for used ztr's first

    exmark scag toro

    Those are the most common around here

    check the paper this fall for used exmark lazers. Catch people needing money and getting out of the business. You might find some good deals.

    I just purchased a 1990 Ransomes Lynx with a 42" cut and a grass collector for $1000. If you look around at many dealers, you'll end up finding something. In my opinion, I would buy a used commercial machine over a new residential one. The commercial ones are basically indestuctible, especially under residential use. I plan on mine lasting me a long time. Also, I think ZTR's are the best way to go for mowing. Before I had a Cub Cadet diesel tractor with a 60" belly mower. My mowing time has went from one hour down to 35 minutes. You can manuever a ZTR just about anywhere and I haven't used my push mower since I bought the Ransomes.
