    I purchased the Exmark Radius 52? cut at just above $5k. Zero turn mower. I cut 4 acres +/- every week and have been very satisfied with it. This is my second zero turn mower and I highly prefer them over a tractor type mower. Cuts mowing time significantly.

    I used to work at a mower dealership back east. Saw all sorts of mowers come in for service, some were easy, some werent. I would recommend an exmark, scag, or Snapper (with a briggs and straton engine). Exmark and scag will be pricier, but are high quality machines, should last for years and years. The snapper will be better priced, and with a briggs and straton engine( which is based out of Georgia i think) getting parts is a lot easier then some of the other brands not based in the US.

    I would also recommend the zero turn,they are fast, easy, and you get used to it quickly. Just watch out when actually turning at zero degrees. The tires tend to rip up the grass in that 1 spot. But If you just let the back wheel roll ever so slightly it stops this from happening.

    I have changed my mind and am going to buy a zero turn. I am having a complete automated sprinkler system put in right now on 4 acres. The contractor also has a large lawn service. He used John Deere zero turn. He is bringing a couple over for me to try. We do have a large JD dealership here.

    My father-in-law runs a grass cutting business.

    He runs Scags.

    They are expensive, but they are the best.

    He owns 3 of them. 35HP Vangaurd engines, 60+" cut.

    I use them all the time to cut my lawn. They are the cats Meow...

    Of course thats all they are good for is cutting grass.

    This is what he has.
