New toys are cool.

Nice machine for sure, I have the ZD326. Definitely can not afford to do the $20.00 recuts with this type of equipment.

Very nice. My neighbor and my FIL simply detest zero turns and always look for a chance to remind me how they tear up yards and are overhyped. "They just go to fast to cut the grass". Lol. We use XMarks, Gravely, Dixon Kodiaks, Cub Cadets, from the cheap to the built and I'll never go back.

Matt had a hack in his hood tell him that the el cheapo Lowes crap mowers were faster than his 61" diesel powered ZTR.
What a clueless sad little man.

Out by us every farmer and bred in the sticks type is a John Deer man. I had one guy who had one for commercial work; it did ok. I also had one crew that went 2 1/2 years mowing with only pushers and riders they claimed in trashouts. I guess for them, thre or four spindles and blade sets per year was ok when the Toro was free. Personally, at my stage in life, I cannot afford to buy junk anymore.

I've talked to guys that do the same with their trash out finds.


Change the plug and clean the carb. Sharpen the blade and get with it.
Run it until it blows and onto the next one.
Folks that are doing plenty of trash outs probably have a stash of "new" behind the garage.

I never did enough trash outs to get to that point and I certainly don't want to put up with the high quality fecal matter type of mowers I found in trash outs.

This is my big mower. 2004 777 model. 27 HP liquid cooled Kawi.
With fresh over haul.



I bought it for a good deal on craigslist. Half of what JD dealers were asking for the same year and hours on the show room floor.

I bought it in January last year and parked it when I got it home. Around the first of April I started getting it ready for the season.
It didn't take long to figure out why it was cheap. It smoked............ A LOT.

At that point I was committed to the season and was praying it'd last thru the season. It did. But was noticeably loosing power by the time
sept rolled around. And was doing a heavy skeeter smoking detail.

My uncle took it down this fall and found that the rings were ate up. Little cylinder wall wear or bearing wear but the rings were WAAAAAAY
out of spec. $963 later and its ready to mow for a few more years.

This is the type of mowing I focus on now.


I've got 3 apartment complexes and try to pick up all the upper end residentials I can get.

First two is two of the complexes and the last two are front/back of my best residential customer.
