If you have one of these mowers, how do you like it over the garden tractor
My wife is worried about not understanding the levers, they can't be that
complicated can they ?
What brand would you get if you only had $2500 to spend ?
About 2 weeks ago, I went to check out the John Deere mowers on their
website. I noticed that you could buy the online. I clicked buy now, punched
in my credit card, and a new john deere was sitting in my driveway before I
got home from work that day. I must say that is impressive. A local deeler
got the order and shipped it right away. So far so good.
I love the fact you dont need to actually go to a store any more. Go to
consumerreports.com, check out what is rated best, buy it and hope CR was
right. More time to spend enjoying the yard!!
I bought a Kubota however I havd about 9 acres to mow. Stay away from
gasoline ZTRs because the maintenance will cause you to go broke. I got the
diesel, they are expensive but they run longer harder and less maintenance.
I have a Ariens with a 14 HP Briggs on it. I have mowed about 3 acres
for 11 years with it and have replaced 0ne belt and one spring. I love
it. Fast and does a very good job. OH some of the 3 acres is hilly and
kind of rough.

No comparison! I traded my John Deere in for a Dixon ZTR, and my
mowing time went from 4 hours to 1.5 hours.
I paid $4000 for my Dixon. I would rather have a front-mounted deck,
because I have lots of evergreens and low crabtrees. But from what
I've seen, front-mounted ZTR's are $6000 and up.
You will not regret a ZTR. The lever control is intuitive and
effortless. You will regret a slow-moving, large-turning-radius lawn
tractor. I know I did.
My rich friend just bought a behemoth Grasshopper commercial-grade
mower with a 60" deck for his 1 acre lawn. If you have a big pile of
money and nothing to spend it on, that thing is incredible. :-)
