Pick a good one, you will be using it a lot. Like every week in the spring/summer.

If you can afford to swing it I highly recommend THIS ONE. We just got it last month to replace our 13 year old Ferris unit. Sold the old one for $1700.

3 acres, I'd be looking at a small utility tractor with a bushhog and a loader, and a backblade.

Way more uses.

I'm actually looking at husqvarna simply because my brother is a dealer for them and I can get them at his cost. I'm torn between two right now..


https://www.husqvarna.com/us/product...z54/967696001/

https://www.husqvarna.com/us/product...560/967929901/

The z560 is significantly more money, but may be worth it in the long run. Having said that, anyone have experience with the husqvarna brand? I currently have a string trimmer and awd pusher mower by them and they are great.

Pretty decent. This shop is about 3 times the size of the one in Reno, but I ran a larger shop before Reno, so it's just going to take some getting used to. My old shop took care of around 600 units and this one is almost 1400 units. I think I'm really going to like the 4 day work week. They say it's supposed to be 4 10s, but that usually means 4 12s. I'm ok with it.

I dont have an issue naming names. I'm working for Penske truck leasing, now known as Penske Transportation Services. I supervise a heavy duty diesel repair shop.

Hard to drink beer on a zero turn. Other than that, the Yami motor is the better option.

No personal experience with the brand but I know the difference between a commercial and a homeowner machine and it's a big gap.

For the two examples the warranty speaks pretty loudly as to the stoutness and the pricey one is 500 lbs of more beef which is also nothing to snivel at.

The m-zt series might be the half step between them that's your sweet spot.

For the wide open lot you've got 60" is the size you should be looking at. Also I'd get a Kawasaki over Kohler all day for the modest price differential.

I wish.. but no, Friday through Monday. I've been working day shift this week to "train". I start my regular schedule next Friday, Friday and Saturday 1pm to midnight or so, and Sunday Monday is 9pm to 8 am.. crappy schedule but I'm hoping the extra day off will make up for it.

I've been working swing from 1 to midnight for almost 3 years now so I'm used to that. The graveyard will take a while to get used to, for sure.

You want to get a Yamaha or Kawasaki gas Engine. You could not give me a Briggs Vanguard. Kohler used to make OK engines but I am not so sure these days.

The discount better be pretty good to go the Husqvarna route. The ferris will likely be in the ball park of the brother discount on that Z560. Once you experience a machine with a real suspension you will never go back. Don't let them tell you a suspension seat makes them even, it is not even close. We bought this one from these guys as they had the best price I could find anywhere. Beat my local dealer that we have purchased many items from by a good margin. https://www.brunospowersports.com/

Talked to a kid named Tyler. Wired them the money and 4 days later a guy in a semi dropped it off. Give the kid a call at the very least. He ordered 10 of the units I bought (#5901745) last month but they go through them fast.

EDIT: If you want to see what one is like let me know and you can come drive ours around after you test the Z560.

If you need an alignment shop in KC, There's an MD Alignment guy there. His name is Chad. But I cannot think of the shop name. They're a HD truck shop, but he might be able to help ya out.

If you want to see what a real POS mower rides like, you can come over and mow My lawn. You'll need about 3 hr's for the full test drive
