  • New to me ZTR

    I been looking for a cheap ZTR to run a second crew with. I ended up getting this for $1250. Not to bad a price imo. Its a Great Dane Brutus 52" cut with a 27 hp kohler and 763 hours. She goes a good 8-10 mph.

    How old is it? Not real familiar with them but it sounds super inexpensive.

      This configuration was only made in 2008. The MSRP is $8,599.00. The deck is 7 gauge steel.

      At that price I thought I was going to have a problem with it but I demoed it in the yard above. I havent found anything wrong with it yet.

      I bought this at a lawnmower shop. I seen it while I was shopping for a trimmer head. They were asking $2000. I pulled out cash and walked out with it.

        Looks plenty powerful judging by the way it looks like it wanted to go right through the front of the trailer.




        Sounds like you caught a good deal!

          Not a bad buy but that is all it is worth, after a line is no longer produced the value of the equipment goes way down. Aftermarket parts should be available for a long time though.

            lol, the kubota did that. The tractor broke the ramp the other day. I used the two missing boards for a temp fix and it broke them too. That little sucker is heavy.

            Great Dane still makes the Brutus line, just not with the 27 hp kohler. They switched to a 25 hp kawasaki in 2009. Im assuming the parts are the same for different years. Have you had any experience working on these? I only see the standers around here.

            The only negative things I read about this mower is it use to use a side mounted engine that didnt properly cool.

              Great Dane stoped production in 2009 or 2010 depending on who you ask. here is a link to a dealer article about the fallout from it. http://www.greenindustrypros.com/art...e-and-everride and yes I have worked on a few of them, in fact I have one in my shop right that my twin brother owns. I do not agree with the side mounted engine now cooling also as hustler has never had a problem with that, and I have never seen any problems with anyone else, the reason some did not cool was no air flow from other parts blocking it or bagging units on them.
