ok, here we go again. homeowner with 1/3 ac lawan with lots of landscaping. i maybe trading up to a larger lawn in the next couple of yrs. i am looking for a ztr for about 3k. i have narrowed my search to a Hustler Fastrak 42" for $3100. i have looked at Snapper, Dixon (dad has one, 16,42 for 2+ac, a little undersized, but a great mower), Ariens 17/42 seemed cheaply built, imo) Exmark (too much $$$, but well built) ditto for Country Clipper, Dixie Copper...Yazoo (father in law has one 23,60)..looked at Cub and Husq at local "big box" retailer.....here are the questions.... is this a good deal.....experience with mulching and bagging.....how reliable.....i noticed in the literature it seems to indicate that the 42" will only trim to about 5.25" from an object, whereas the 36" will trim to .5"............. any help or info will be appreciated.
