    If you had to start again, with all your experience w/equipment, what ztr mower would you buy? If you had a choice between 54" and 60"? Exmark, Hustler SuperZ, Toro Z-Master, JD? What experiences have you had with each/any of these?

    I have done it all over again.

    Had 20 employees, now I am solo with help when needed.

    Had 6 trucks, 4 trailers, 15 weed eaters, 15 BP blowers, 3 WB mowers, 7 Scag ZTR's 3 JD F935, 2 JD 755, and a bunch of other stuff.

    I love solo! But I will grow just a little more to keep it interesting. Oh and I am in a much better mood most days.;)
