Zero Turn Mower For Fairly Small Yard With Steep Hills
Ok, first I hope that too many of you won't laugh but here goes. I have a fairly small yard, half an acre would be a stretch, but its on a slope and the back yard has an even larger slope to it. My question is which Zero Turn should I get. I have looked at everything from the:
Toro TimeCutter Z 5060
eXmark Quest SP
Scag Freedom Z
Ariens 54 Zoom XL
Bad Boy MZ (No Bagging systems which I need)
I am not saying that I want to spend $5K either, the yard is small yes, but its got the hills, so when talking to my mechanic he made me nervous saying the the yard wont hurt the mower but the hills will wear on the engine. He also mentioned that the deck on the Toro's,& Ariens are stamped which I don't know if this will even play a part since my yard is so small. The other reason I want to get a Zero Turn is to be able to collect all the leaves in the fall, so I will definetly want a bagger to go on the Zero Turn. So after doing all the research I don't know if my hills will not pose a problem on the engine or if they will. Any advice I can get will be very appreciated.
