If you were starting over and could get one ZTR, which would it be?

    Thought I would rephrase the question and see if I could get some responses. You can also choose walk-behinds etc,

    There is a wealth of information if you use the search function. However, I personally think that any of the name brand mowers would work. I use a snapper 25hp kawi. with a 61 inch cut. It works great for me, and the price was right. I will be buying a diesel kabota in the spring but they are quite a bit more money. But then again, you get what you pay for.

    Try the search function it really works well.

    Have a good day,

    If I was going to get back in I think I'd get Walkers becuase out here most want clippings bagged and Walkers have a lot of attachments. Exmark or Encore for a walk behind.

    I'd get exactly what I bought in 2001... A Dixie Chopper. It has been literally flawless since the day I bought it. It's extremely easy to operate, comes from the factory with an OCDC, easy on maintenance, fits in my trailer, pulls a 2,000 pound load. I could go on and on.

    Exmark for walk behinds, Ferris for Zero turns....If I could only have 1 mower I would have to go with a Exmark 48 TTHP wih std pistol grips and the 17 HP Electric Stark Kawi.
    (I do more smaller yrads than bigh yards)

    Dang fine question... But heck I dunno... I've asked myself the same questions a few times over the years and every time I gave myself a different answer. A time or two I even said I woudn't have bought one at all. But the same select ZTR's are always in the mix...
