My wife and I have been saving for a new house and I have not been putting money back into the business. However, I had a big landscape job and I went out and bought a 60" 27hp Kawasaki Scag with the profits! This is the best thing I have ever bought for the business, saving me around 10 hours a week in mowing. I had been using a 48" Snapper walkbehind thinking I was in the money and never wanted anything bigger (afraid of ruts, not getting into the smaller yards etc) but now I unload that thing every chance I get. I have not demoed many diffrent ztr but I would have to say this machine is fantastic. I cut through very thick and wet grass today and the machine never flinched. Great machine to all who is thinking of buying!! I should have done it a long time ago!
