Zero Turn Lawn Mowers

I'm interested in purchasing a zero turn lawn mower to mow a 1 acre lot. Any recommendations on brand/type?? Why??

Thanks

Andy

Hello Andy!

My main workload doesn't consist of a whole lot of ZTR mowers, but from what I have seen, Dixon and Exmark seem to be pretty good. I am sure there are several other good makes, but as I said...I don't see a whole lot of 'em. Most of what I see is whatever the local dealers in the area sell.

Anyone else have any reccomendations?

Hello AndyEtnyre, like cheese I can only comment on what I see in my area. Snapper, Walker, Exmark and White are the ones in use by our yard crews and city workers. If looking at a White don't pay to much because their lower line mowers are over priced and nothing but MTD in fancy clothes. That may well be the case with their better machines....Mike

Z-Mowers

Andy,

It all depends on how much $$$ you feel comfortable putting
into one. Most commercial grade ZTR's begin in the $4500
range and up. Toro offers their "TimeCutter" series, which
is directed to homeowners and part-time commercial users.
You'll spend $3500 to $4500 for one of those I believe. If
you spend upwards of $5500-6000, you can buy a 44" Toro,
Exmark, or other commercial grade mowers that would LAST
FOREVER mowing 1 acre. You'd finish cutting your grass in
about 30-40 minutes, also. BE CAREFUL....then, there's more
time to devote to the "HONEY DO" list !! Exmark, Scag, Toro,
Dixie Chopper, Bobcat, Husqvarna/Yazoo Kees, Hustler....ALL,
fine products. Check 'em out !!
