Does anybody know what sort of quality the cub cadet sz60 is.I am just about to purchase a new mower and they seem like they have excellent features and a good price, but i am wondering if there is a catch with the quality????
I have 5 acres which is a little hilly and a little bit rough but generally pretty good and it is kept mowed short most of the time.

The tank riders are fairly decent machines. They are not in the same ballpark as a Walker or something else you'd see very many of on the back of a landscaper's trailer. As a homeowner, you should do fine mechanically. Do you feel that your "hilly" terrain is a consideration?

RE: cub cadet sz60

agree with tom's take. would also add that such a machine will need inside storage, will burn a lot of fuel and require a substantial amount of ongoing maintenance. don't plan to just hop on it it , cut and hop off.
cutting round obstacles is relatively easy (slow on sharp turns), but long runs across open areas on less than smooth ground will demand your fulltime steering attention on the control sticks - both hands. If you are not aware of these things already, suggest you rent a similar machine first to find out if you really like how it handles.
