    Zero turn mowers

    Who's got one? Let me here the likes, dislikes and recommendations. I'm looking at buying one and want some input on the good, bad and ugly.

    I have a Kubota. I looked at most all of them before deciding to buy the Kubota. Kubota also offers 0% interest for the life of the loan if you finance it.

    Wanted the Kubota Diesel model, they just got too proud for the price in my mind.
    Went looking at other brands and came to the decision to buy a John Deere zero turn.
    Reason for this was the construction of the body being much better and the deck is made much better / thicker metals.
    Great warranty on the machine, reputation is solid, Performance is great and the dealer was super knowledgeable on their products.
    Was sitting between two models both at good price points. Thought of going with the slightly smaller less expensive model and with two acres of land was told that going with the larger one would be a better choice for durability as the smaller one was for 1 acre or less more of a home model where as the larger one was stepping up closer to commercial.

    Not a single regret or issue in two years with 60 hours on the machine.
    There is a difference in small yard residential, large yard residential and Commercial use machines.

    Scag is widely considered the best in the landscaping industry. Now they do not make residential mowers but their smaller commercial ones are still better than other manufacturers residential mowers.
    However, JD, gravely, exmark make good mowers too.
    Whatever you get it needs to be stored out of the weather or you will have problems down the road.

    In the landscaping world Bad boy mowers are widely considered to be garbage.

    I have a bad boy that has been mowing 5 acres for quite a few years. It will chew through anything. Just sharpen the blades, change the oil and keep it lubed. Although for just an acre a zero-turn seems like overkill a good lawn tractor will do it the same for way cheaper.

    One acre . Forget the high dollar machines like Scag . Too expensive to buy and the cost of parts is exorbitant . Landscaping guys tend to be mower snobs ..
