New mower for landscape maintenance

jkbuNovember 18, 2010

I'm just breaking into the service of providing maintenance for my landscape design business. I'm looking at the John Deere EZtrak225 ZTR mower, but not sure it's going to handle the daily use of mowing .5 to 2 acre properties with lots of obstacles, but flat. Does anybody know much about this mower and whether it can withstand lots of use while scalping, even cutting, etc. OR is it necessry that I step up to a more expensive commercial mower?

If it was me and I had a "commercial" lawn business, I would step up to a commercial quality mower if I could for a couple $K more. At least step up to the JD EZTrak Z425 with 48-in deck and separate pump and wheel motors for $3,900.00.
