    It takes me 4.5 hrs to mow our church lawn with a 42" rider that has seen better days. Our church budjet is limited to $2000 for a replacement. Do we find just another rider or try and find a used ztr. any help would be appreciated. thanks

    Pass the collection plate until you can get a Wright stander. You'll save money in the long run and lots of time now.

    I agree with StihlGuy...for $2000 you could find a clean used commercial walk behind with a sulky that will last for a long time. A 48" walkbehind with a sulky will mow your property much quicker.

    A rider can be used by anybody. A walkbehind does take a certain amount of training and that little old lady that sits in the third pew won't be able to use it if need be.

    You can get a pretty decent rider for $2000.
