Primary mower would be my Exmark Turf Tracers 36"&52". But I also use the Exmark laser z x-series 52" and Toro Grandstand 52" for larger properties.

I used a Montgomery Ward (Yardman) Lawn Tractor for a decade. Then decided I wanted the exercise so my Snapper 21" Commercial model was put back into service and my Lawn Tractor was sold. I use the Snapper and the LawnBoy (2 stroke) alternately during the season, but I use the Snapper solely in the fall because of the HIVAC efficiency to mulch and pick up the leaves.

I've been walking now for 20 years and it may be time to start thinking about getting another tractor for my 1 acre heavily wooded property. The problem is there is so much trim, a walk behind makes more sense.

I use a farmall super A with a 60" cut for my 4 acres. around the house I use a 149 cubcadet. the super A is a 1951 and the 149 is a 1973. I have a plow and a snow blade for the super A and a tiller and snowblower for the 149. have had both these units for many many years. my neighbor keeps telling me I need a zero turn but I keep tellin him that their useless for what I need cause you cant plow or till with one and besides that he is on his fourth on in the last 15 years where as my two tractors will never have to be replaced

Do you use a push mower, garden tractor, or ZTR mower as your primary mower?
I have a Country Clipper Boss "O" turn with 26HP & 60" cut. I put a cheap battery maintainer on it and add gas stabilizer in the fall and it starts right up in the spring - at least it has since 2010. Love the tilt deck. I sit on a low shop stool and change the blades. No more crawling on the ground to remove them. It gets freshly sharpened blades about 4 times a summer. I set the blades at 12:00 2:00 and 4:00 o'clock. Although the blades will shift in time it cuts like a dream. Wish I would have gotten the 72" cut as I cut up to 6 acres.

We run a ZD326 Kubota zero turn primarily most of the time. On some yards we run ZG222. If a property is large enough we run both. We also have a 21" walk behind that we run occasionally on some property.
I traded the ZD 326 and now I have two Scag Tiger Cats that we run as primaries. Also have a Toro Time Master 30" walk behind.

Hustler Sports 42" - with a deckless 28yr old B&S sidevalve Greenfield rigged
for pumping water and towing various attachments around the block.
Trying to figure a way to rig the GF as an elevated platform rig to do pruning, etc.

I still prefer garden tractors for their style, ride quality and utility. But, last year I picked up a 1993 John Deere F725 with the infamous plastic cam gear failure for $600 from the original onwer. He even had every receipt for every belt, oil change, tires and even a new seat on it. Now the plastic was shot, so it looked rough, but only had about 850 hours on it. I pulled the oil pan off and spent the next two days picking plastic teeth out of the engine. They were everywhere!! Cost me right at $400 in parts, including new oil and water pumps. Mowed with it all summer and have to admit I love it. Doesn't ride as nice as the 335 though. Just finished putting all new plastic back on it as well as rebuilding the driveshaft and installing an oil pressure and water temperature gauges. Only two things I would change, put larger tires on it to make it ride better and have the deck stay up when raised.

Must have missed this thread.
Main mowers are the two Rover Rancher II's.
1966 & 1969 models probably got 5000 hours on each.
Replaced the old SV 8 & 10 Hp B & S engines with 12 Hp Inteks I got as a job lot of new mower pull engines.
Customers get the Cox's as loan mowers because you can not break them.
