Exclamation Has Anyone Had Any Luck With This Equipment?

Okay, So I Work At Lowe's Part Time. So I Am Waiting Until All The Mowers Are Gone So I Can Special Order Them. I Get Like 20% Off. So I Am Trying To Decide Which One I Should Buy This Winter. Has Any One Had Any Luck With The John Deere Z225 Or The Troy Bilt 42" Zero Turn? I Am Kinda Leaning Towards The Deere Because I Already Have A Troy Bilt Riding Tractor. Its Good But Every Time I Gotta Sharpen The Blades, I Have To Take The Deck Off.

Spend the extra $500 and buy the 50 Cub from Home depot. It a much better machine. 22HP Kaw motor and easier to handle. Trust me I know just got done doing all the research and testing them out.

Have you checked how many hours the engines are designed to last?

I'd spend the $2200 on a used commercial mower instead of a box store mower.
