Have a friend of mine with a very small lawncare biz.... Thinking of buying a Z so he can be lazy with his 25 accounts. Talked to me about who is the best dealer in town for Z's...hes been partial to Exmark for his WB for the past 2 years but its the only mower he has etc etc and then he threw out the idea of just buying a residential mower from Home Cheapo this spring, use it and abuse it for the season and then dump it on Ebay or Craigslist for 1/2 of what he paid for it and just keep buying new machines each season...... I gotta say.... I have never used a residential mower, but I would think it would last the season on 25 1/2 to 1 acre properties if he takes care of it somewhat.... Sure beats dropping 6, 7, 8...grand on a new mower or trying to find a "good" used mower.... What do you guys think of this idea? It honestly stopped me in my tracks and I thought about it....has key points... 3 months of residential warranty isnt bad when its a 6 month cutting season here.... New machine each season means less wear and tear, always have the latest and greatest mower... Sure....its not commercial grade, but for 25 accounts, does it really need to be?! I gotta say, its a good question.... What do you guys think?
