    Why would you want to sell a 727Z and replace it with 2 traditional Riders?

    the reason i want to get rid of it is because i am a one man show hoping to get a helper next season.I had a John Deere riding mower before, for my personal yard and could cut it in about 30 mins and the 727A only saved about 5 mins and i always have to be careful with turning.I figure i could get 2 mowers,another weedeater,another blower and another edger for what i have in the 727A.I have been looking at John Deere 190C (same hp and cut width as the 727A,but they all come with Briggs motors(yuck).So I think i might try out the Cub Cadet riding mower(27hp Kohler and 54 inch cut)

    i use simplicity riders, and they are amazing, the quaity is far supior to some of the commercial ZTR's, and with the floating deck and rollers, it gives a good finish stripe. mine has the kohler commercial engine and runs very strong.

    I wouldnt make that move.

    To start with you'll take a bath on the 727.

    Make it through another season with 727, add a helper for the trimming/blowing (switch off if you want, he'll like you for it), then add a second Z or wb, work toward commercial accounts and/or more res. over next winter, and finally add a third helper for the hand-helds.
