Hi Folks, I have around two acres, rough with some slopes up to 30 degrees. I am operating on a 3000.00 budget (firm) I was going to buy a Husqvarna ZTR but I found a bunch of information here slamming that mower as well as finding out that the low end ZTR's won't hold a hill very well. I am thinking now that I need to go with a large lawn tractor. I have looked at the JD x300 for 2699.00 and the Kubota t1670 for 3299.00. I have also looked at the large Whites and large Husqvarna's and thinking about the Simplicity Regent as well I have confused myself to no end and need some guidance. I haven't done my own yard in 3 years. HELPPPPP!!!! I have to get a mower this week and my lawn is getting out of control. Roger W.
