This would be strictly for residential use for a 1/2 acre lot. I'm looking to keep in a budget of around $3k and everything I'm considering is around that price point. My choices would be to get a new Ariens/Hustler, a used Great Dane/Everride stander (both have less than 100 hours), or a local Exmark Laser Z 46"/27 HP w/ 1600 hours that claims to cut like new. Obviously, the Exmark provides the most bang for the buck and has a bunch of hours, but I would think I should still get more than enough usage out of it to last me many years. Does the price on the Exmark seem to be good or bad in your opinion?
