View Full Version : What type of zero turn to buy for new biz?

Just starting off this year and am looking to buy a Ariens max zoom at home depot. I will be cutting 15-20 lawns a week. Is this zero turn lawnmower suitable to cut this many lawns per week? Or should I go with a more expensive (commercial) mower?

I would rather have a used commercial mower from a dealer than anything from a box store. Residential mowers do not hold up nearly as well. Having a dealer you regularly buy from to fix things when they break is nice to have.

the ariens mower is not going to hold up well for that kind of work. I would check at your local dealers and see if they have anything.

Yeah I agree with them, don't get a residential mower, they don't last nearly as long as commercial ones. Try going to Craigslist and looking a used mower?

Ahh don't go for the residential mower. It will cost you more money in the long run. I agree with the others... Go to your deal and try and get a comercial mower
