We love our Zero-Turn - it turned 3 hours of mowing into 45 minutes!! We did spend more than we should have, but DH likes to get the best and bought a commercial grade one. Now he is looking for a bagger attachment for it, and they do make one, lol.

I bought a bagger for my mower. Cost me $350 but was so worth it

It's all about what each needs....I have a bagger & a pull sweeper for the mower. Each has a use. I work here alone 98% of the time, so it makes a difference. I use the backhoe when fencing because I can raise, lower, go right or left, stretch etc. Really it has been a huge help for far more than digging. LOL BUT -- digging was main reason for it. The tractor provides the strength I need to push, pull & lift -- No man, no backtalk, no dirty laundry :lol:

I've hired self & tractor out for work on occasion. Little extra $$.

well, my wife gave me the go-ahead to use a significant amount of cash from our House acct after the deck is done being built. So, that expands my budget into that 4k range and makes it obtainable to get what will be useful for us without regretting the purchase. I hate note spending what you should and regretting it later.

They're gonna love it! We were a motorcycle/dirt bike family waaaaay back when I was a kid. My first bike was a blue Honda 50cc mini-trail. Good times!
