Hello I just joined to get some info and learn a little about Tractors/mowers I just purchased a home with 8 acres and appx 5-6 acres is mowable lawn. I decided to go with zero turn but not sure which type between commercial/residential. The dealers around me say if i get a residential mower such as toro ss5000 will break down and need to be replaced in 3-5 years I think its b.s. but I figured I'd ask the experts and experienced here. My budget is 3500 $ I can spend more but it just depends on if the residential will get the job done and have longevity please give your opinion and info its all appreciated. By the way this is going to be the first time I've ever owned or mowed this much lawn/property I have been in suburbs my whole life. So I'm pretty clueless to anything about Tractors/ztr.
