    id go with a lightly used commercial brand...make sure your local dealer will be able to find parts for it when you need them

    Get a new toro. Theyre offering 0% interest. Just put 5K down and have a low payment.

    Buy used buy used buy used. Let someone else take the hit for it new. In a year, it'll be just as used. Homeowners are all the time buyin commercial mowers and then they need a little money and there you go. I have been in business since 2006 and have never bought new but never bought one that was used commercially either. I have four mowers. I buy one used every winter, near Christmas. I then sell off my oldest or least used one at tax time. Some Johnny come lately is always taking his wife's income tax check and trying to start mowing. I usually make more on the mower than I have in it and I get a couple of years of use out of it.
