How has the weather been in your neck of the woods?
We are looking for feedback from our membership to see how/what the weather has been like in your area. Please Click here to take our Winter Weather Survey, we would appreciate it.
What were you thinking about buying that would cause their to be a three thousand dollar difference in price? A Craftsman perhaps? Spend you money on high quality commercial equipment and you wont be disappointed.
If you're wanting quick feedback I don't think it will happen. I'm also a new member trying to decide on a new ZTR also wanting feedback. I've quit waiting and did searchs to determine what people think.
Personally I wouldn't spend the extra, it all depends on how quick your return on investment will be. I'm small time, so 6K will be about what I made last year, and was the price that I've been looking at. I also will be paying cash.
I'm going to start looking at used equipment but I want a 50" deck, and that might be hard to find.
One thing though, most guys that do it for a living will tell you to buy the best equipment with the most HP.
If there is a 3k difference it is not worth it. I bought a Lazer Z last year with the 27 Kohler and it has plenty of power. I can not in any way justify spending an extra 3k for basically the same mower. Just my opinion.
