So I have a 1026r with 54" mmm. I'm tired of taking it on and off, along with loader, etc. I'm tired of bouncing around like crazy. I'm tired of half the mower knobs and setup and alignments etc being hard to turn, setup etc. I know adjustments can be made here and there but it's just... Yeah.
So I'm taking myself into getting a zero turn for mowing and leave my mini tractor for tractoring.
I first came here to check out the John Deere zero turns of course, but in my research realized they don't really have any kind of fancy suspension either, which is half my issue.
I saw the popular dieselshadow went from a JD to a Ferris, and saw it had an actual suspension. I've talked to a local dealer and he's putting together a IS600Z to let me bring home and try on my property, and assures me I will be writing a check after that. He's quoting me $5800 before tax right now.
Can anyone give me insight into my choice here? An alternative JD that would be just as good for same or less money? I have 3 acres of yard.
