I am another one of those firemen that is also in the Lawn Care business. I currently have a used 36" Bobcat Ransomes walk behind and it works great!!! I paid $500 for it and put another $300 into it and it's working great for me. But the only problem is is that busting ass I can only mow around 7 yards a day, ( including edging, weedeating and blowing.) I am debating on getting a zero turn so I can mow more yards in 1 day and or mow more than 1 day a week. I have been looking a little bit, ( 38 week pregnant wife doesn't know my idea, but knows my buying habits) at zero turns but dont want to shell out 5 or 6 grand on one. Also I cant get anything bigger than 48" due to the door on my building is 54", So I have been looking at Lowes and Home Depot for smaller zero's. Does anyone have any ideas or experience using or dealing with the Toro Z4200 timecutters or the John Deere EZTrak's?? I love my Bobcat and was also looking at the Bobcat Fast Cat( though I haven't checked on price.) I know these decisions shouldn't be based primarily on price but I own a very small business so..... Any imput would be greatly appreciated.
