Looking to buy a zero turn mower in the 5k to 6k range 50 to 60 inch cut. Toro, Husqvarna, Bad Boy, Gravely, Exmark, Bob Cat, Cub Cadet, John Deere to name a few. Should I stay away from Tsc, Fleet Farm, Home Depot, big box stores and go to a dealer. Kohler, Kawasaki, Briggs, engines 20hp to 30hp range. What are the better engines these days. Got only about 3 acres to cut so really don't need a commercial mower. I have a older Dixon that I bought used about 10 years ago never really gave me problems,mower is just getting old and so am I, need a little more comfy ride. Thanks for your advice in helping me choose a new mower.
