I'm looking at zero turn mowers of all kinds and don't know where to start. I'm planning on mowing my own lawn and picking up maybe 6-10 accounts to basically help pay for the mower expense. My own lawn is only 1/4 acre and most of my accounts will be about the same size or slightly larger. We do have hills here, but nothing a garden tractor wouldn't handle. As far as dealers go, I have Deere and Cub but neither keeps enough parts in stock to fill a shoe box. Next closest dealers are Portland/metro area where there's dealers of all kinds and parts are 1 day away (same as local dealers when they order). My main concern is most bang for the buck and realibility. I would also like a mower that had mulching abillity, if it works in damp conditions here on the coast. Thanks for the help, I'm sure I think of more later.
