    I might. I am leery of buying used, and inheriting someone's issues, but you might be right. I have all winter for this, which is great! The house deal closes on Halloween!

    Check out Deines Manufacturing out of Kansas. They make a forntdeck zero turn that is made in US. I hae owned 2 0f them . Teh current one has over 1000 hours on it. Good, simple machine.

    That's not me just in case anyone was wondering. :lolup:

    I've had several John Deere riders and walk behinds and they were good to me. A little over two years ago I was in the market for new Zero turns/Grand stands and went with Toro over John Deere for the better warranty. These machines are stout and I put 1000 hours on my grand stand and only 250 on the rider in the first year. That being said, a grand stand is great if you are going to be mowing acres upon acres and hilly terrain.

    Several years ago I sodded a yard for a John Deere engineer. At the time I had a 2007 737 commercial mower with 54" deck. I didn't have the grounds we maintain, now and he suggested that I sell my mower and buy 2 of the John Deere home owner mowers (the zero turn mowers sold at lowes/home depot)saying that they were great. Many of my friends have asked for similar advice and bought them for personal use and they swear by them!

    If you want to spend 5-8k go commercial but with only 1/3 acre I'd just go for the Lowe's Cub cadet or John Deere zero turns. I don't think they will disappoint, just keep a battery sustainer or trickle charger through the winter.
