Toro mowers are top quality. Zero turns are fast and agile. Is a 42 inch deck going to cut you acreage as quickly as you want?

Looks like a good deal. Just make sure it has an oil filter on it. If you have hills, you need a pressurized oil system or you run the risk of seizing the engine.

yes 42inches and nothing smaller should do the trick.

Help me make a decision

i cant decide between the 2. the front yard is very slightly graded on a slope. i think that the toro would be great because its a Z turn and can turn on the dime although i have no obstacles in the yard but can I can turn around on the spot when cutting. I can get this for 1500$ on craigslist for a 2008 but it is used.
the joh deere L125 riding mower would be brand new for 1900$ and i could attach a plow to it for my driveway. Also since it is new from the dealer they would service it if anything goes wrong.
