Used ZTR mowers?


LawnSite Member
I am looking to purchase a used ZTR mower, probably something in the 48 to 60 inch range.

My question to hours on a used machine. What would be considered high hours, and how many hours can you generally get out of a machine with proper maintenance?

I am not a full time operator. I recently got a contract to cut 8 small city parks (about 1/3 to 1/2 acres each). In addition, I have about a dozen residential properties that I could use the machine on.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Finding a good used ZTR mower is hard. Most for sale are pretty used. We get about 2500-3000 hours out of our riders before they are overhauled. Then it costs about $1500 in parts labor, ect. We do all of ours in house. Our riders are 60" w/ 25hp and wb are 48"s w/ 17hp.
