Last year when I was looking for a ZTR I went to my local Hustler dealer and his units were sitting out in the mud with grass growing up through the foot plate. Went by another dealer today. Had his ZTRs out by the road with the same sitting in the weeds things going on. No way in hell am I ever going to spend 6 or 8K for a "new" mower in such shape. That may have been ok years ago when spending 1K for a lawn tractor but now it's like buying a car. When you take them in for service over the winter. Hope it don't snow because your ZTR will be buried. Am I over reacting? Anyone feel the same as I do??
