Last year I bought an Ariens/Gravely zero turn mower with a
power assist rear tripple bagging system.

I'd highly recommend one to anyone. It cuts mowing time more
then in 1/2, it's like mowing the lawn in your easy chair.....seriously.

They have earth/snow plow , snowblower , and sweeper attachments
for the front also. Pretty much every brand sells them, so a person
could stay loyal to Cub Cadet, John-Deere, Gravely etc... Personally,
I've also been a fan of Gravely and try to stick with them.

Pa has a space cadet, but he mows in second gear. No hurry when your retired. It's a good unit.

Don't buy a DEERE you'll be sorry if ya do. X Mark & Grass Hopper is what most lawn services use, Dad had a grass hopper for over 25 years, he used it to trim with on his 25 acer property, He also had a Kabota 4 wheel drive deisel with a 42 inch Woods for the main cutting job

Mines a hydrostatic transsmison and a regular old
vertical shaft gas engine, three blades and one belt.

Same replacables as a regular mower, you just steer different
and sit different

My neighbor has one of them new Cub Cadets
don't know if it's because he isn't happy with it, or if he's
just jealous watching me be done mowing in way less then half
the time he is, but he's talking about buying a zero turn this summer.
