Zero turn advice???
I am new to the zero turn market. I have borrowed a Gravely 260Z and an exmark laser-z series to cut our yard. We are cutting a yard that is about 2.5 acres with about an acre being centipede and the rest bahia. I have obviously loved cutting with the borrowed mowers, however I believe both are a little out of our price range.
Could someone give me some advice on their recommendations on what we should look at. Wanting to stay under 5K and would really like to stay just under 4K. The dealers we have that are within 60 miles or so sell Gravely, Ferris, Hustler, Dixie Chopper, Walker, Scag. Obviously, I'd look at other brands too, but I know that all of you seem to definitely recommend getting something where there is a dealer close.
Any recs and tips are extremely appreciated. Also, is there is significant mark down on mowers at the end of growing season (maybe Sept or Oct) where you can snag a really really good deal? Or do those prices stay relatively even throughout the year?
