I'd get a GT :fing32:
Well said. I just finished off ruining the transmission on my 1996 Dixon ZTR yesterday pulling a tow-behind aerator I just bought. It got the job done, but the Dixon lost most of its power and is basically ready for the dump. It simply isn't worth spending the money for the new cone tranny, which was close to worn out already.Go with the zero turn for mowing. You can always get an old GT or LT for pulling the cart. I see craftsman lawn tractors without decks sell for $100 or even free. Or go to an older GT like a suburban. In the past when I tried to use my mower to do other things I was always bottoming out the deck. It is better to have a machine that is just for the rougher work. Good luck, Ed
Yep, that is a good plan! That's what I do, except I'm GT-less at the moment! Just sold my Case 220 backup machine. I like to tinker and fix up oldies when/where ever possible, then I have my ZTR for grass cutting.Go with the zero turn for mowing. You can always get an old GT or LT for pulling the cart.
Have to agree with Mr Snotrocket, have two Ingersolls that I dearly love, however, my Cub Cadet zero is WAY faster for mowing. It does only one task, but, it does it exceedingly well.If I was mowing 2+ acres I would want the zero turn. My neighbor has a Toro ZT that will mow circles around my Case like it's not even moving.
