Shouldn't talk about your sister that way.My brother in law married an ugly, fat rich women and he bought a zero turn that he said they paid over $13,000 bucks for. He said the Kawasaki motor would have cost him an extra $3,000 on top of that. It was orange and had no plastic, all thick steel. He said it could do 20mph. I can't remember the brand name. Anybody know what it might be? It was an odd sounding name that I never heard of.
I wondered what you did!! You going to moonlight on lawn equipment when you retire?? Might have some work for you............7thcorps-Maybe a Kubota?? Anyways,,hang_loose,,I work on ALL of Akron Public Schools Air cooled & some of liquid cooled Lawn equip. (Single Handedly/38yrs.!!)... We recently bought the Hustler brand,,Walk-b-hind's & we also tested their Zero's,,ended up with one Zero(60") & 8 - 48" W.B.H.s.. The end result for all of the Hustlers is that I have had VERY FEW complaints of that brand,,But after all the testing of Deere,,Hustler,,E-mark,,& Toro,,& Snapper..The Grounds Dept. where I work,, bought a 72" Kubota Diesel !! THAT SOB will FLAT OUT cut an entire Football Field in just under 45min!!&,, It will do 20 mph.. It was right around $15,000... The Hustler's(60") are about 8,G's.. & they are built of VERY HEAVY STEEL !! The drive & deck,, are also WELL guaranteed !! ----->>>>>sonar<<<<<-----
I was told by a dealer, that MTD makes just about all the mowers at big box stores.As mentioned before, stay away from the big box stores. They offer John dere & cub cadets, toros etc.. These are NOT the same as offered by a true dealer. They are spin-offs from the real thing. Made CHEAP for the commom home owner.
Check with a true dealer, they'll inform you in a educated way.
Scag =. Hands down a $ great $ commercial machine.
