    I've got a John Deere 3032E with a front end loader. Gets most of what I need done.

    One day I will buy a Bobcat Toolcat or Skid Steer. I like the Toolcat with a 3 point hitch and PTO. The AC won't suck either.

    I have a zero turn cub cadet and it sucks donkey dick on rye bread. It can not handle hilly terrain. Once a year the drive belt breaks. Just try and put a snow plow on it yourself. Two people and 6 man hours. I think for reasonably level or slight grades it would be ok. I personally will not buy another. You have to watch how sharp you turn if you have a lawn rake, wagon or other attachment.

    I am finally out of the lawn mower business. My 13 year old Cub Cadet ZForce 44 bit the dust a month ago with the left Hydrostat pump going belly up. It was going to cost me close to 3 grand + to replace both left and right pumps (you should replace both if one old one goes out). No way would I put that kind of dough into a an old mower. So, my alternative was 1) to buy a new zero turn which I probably would have sunk 5 grand into it, or 2) hire a guy to mow. I figure it would be at least five years before I went into the red with option 2. As I am 75, the decision was pretty easy.

    Zero turn and tractors arent a comparison, all I got to say is badboy mowers aint as good as they look. But since TSC sells them we should all know that already.
