Lawn mower advice


Recent lawn mower reviews all have given excellent ratings to Toro mowers and their financing makes it quite attractive. Here's one of their ZT's I was just looking at: http://www.toro.com/en-us/Homeowner/...35-74627-74628 although they have several other models that would also fit your budget.

I went to a local store down the road and they will give me any Toro for 0% financing for 24 months and free delivery.

Like many things...you pay for what you get. I know that might not help, but far too many people buy something new and expect it to act like something for 2-5K more.

The Toro and the Husqvarna are good choices, the major determining factor is probably the engine. That Toro comes with a Kawasaki, which is viewed by many as the superior engine in quality and performance, plus is has a 3 year warranty.
