Ok - this might turn out to be a little long, but here is my situation. It's time for me to grow some, but really don't know which direction to go. I am a solo operation, and need to expand to do some other types of work like brush hogging, post hole digging, and gravel driveway repair. I currently am doing all this with a Deere 2210 (see photo). It has a 62" deck, and does a great job at mowing, and to me is pretty fast too. But, if I am going to get serious with the brush hogging, etc, I need a bigger machine. But (again), once I go to a larger machine, I know that the mowing speed and fine cut will degrade. So...I'm thinking of getting a Deere 757 ZTR, and a simple Deere 790 tractor that would be used for loader work, brush hogging, etc. But, for some reason, I just can't fully decide on the ZTR. I've been running all 4WD tractors for years and feel so comfortable with one. My dealer has a small 727 that I tried out for a few minutes. I know that I need to spend more time on it to get used to it, but I came away with the feeling that I didn't like it that much. I've read a lot here, and all seem very pleased with their ZTR's. Why can't I convince myself to make this change? This is a big move for me equipment wise, but in order to gain the more business that I need, I have to get myself a larger tractor for the tractor work. So, I guess what I am asking, is some input from folks who went from a 4wd tractor to a ZTR.
