Getting our first ZTR.
Original plan was to get a ZTR for the 1/10 acre zoysia lawns & 1/2 acre weed mow around the house. For that, the Toro Timecutter 42" https://www.homedepot.com/p/Toro-Tim...4726/303195934 seems about right.
Now thinking may want to add "the field" (1-2 acres?) that only gets mowed 3-4 times per year. "The field" is fairly flat, but does have some uneven ground. Currently mowing it with an old Sears DGS 6500 6-speed. At this point, looks like either Timecutter 50" https://www.homedepot.com/p/Toro-Tim...4731/205818770 or the Toro MX5075 https://www.homedepot.com/p/Toro-Tim...4778/303196867.
Trying to decide if the MyRide suspension system on the MX5075 is worth $1200 additional cost. Actually not all of the cost is the MyRide - the MX5075 has better frame/deck, upgraded seat, etc. But for us, it'd be the MyRide that would be the "value" item. The MyRide has been on some Toro commercial units for a couple years, but this is the first year for a residential unit & there isn't a lot on info/reviews yet. Have a feeling that a test ride at dealer (not planning to buy from HD) won't really tell us much, particularly since we're new to ZTRs. So an experienced ZTR operator's guess just by looking at the specs/pics would probably be worth more than our testing.
Any GTT soothsayers available?
