Not sure about hours, but we find the mountfield type cost circa £1500 just aren't hard enough.i know it depends on how well these have been treated, but I was wondering how many hrs is a decent ride on mower good for ?
To be honest zero turns are anything but awkward. Far nicer and easier to use than conventional mowers. That is a big one admittedly but smaller are availablethat is a bit big and awkward for me unfortunately
any recommendations for a good smaller machine
I have one big lawn and 2 smaller ones and a 200m drive between the two
ya i have a kubota gzd15 which collects as well it is the high tip box so great for tipping in to trailers or over walls. probably tips over 4ftis there any Zero turn which can collect the grass as well
