First time posting on the site, also a new member. Been reading some good information on several of these threads. I've recently been researching several ztr mowers and have narrowed my choices down to a few. This is where I hope you come in? From everything I've read, it sounds like I'm on the right track. Currently I cut 3-4 acres a week, which is my home and a church across the street. I have hopes of slowly starting up a few residential lawns next Spring and take it from there. The mowers I'm debating on are the eXmark, Hustler & Scag unless convenced otherwised. Preferably 44" - 50" cut, and either Kohler or Kaw. motor. The ground I've been mowing is bumpy, not alot of inclines, and a fair amount of trees and obstacles. This would be a mower I would like to keep for years to come with hopefully minimum repair. This will also be my first ztr so I know I'll need some adjustment time, along with I'm sure a lot of trial and error. Appreciate any feedback, Thanks!
