I am tired of my 10 yr old tractor style mower needing repair and have decided it is time for another mower. I mow about half an acre with some banks. Most people would probly not consider that I have many obstacles. In spite of my small yard, i am drawn to a zero turn as I have arthritis between shoulder blades. My mower speed is likely to be slower than many people as my lot is only 100 ft wide. I am drawn to 42 inch deck as it will fit in my truck bed. Is it worth me worrying about stamped vs fabricated deck? Should I worry much about buying from dealer vs box store when the closest dealer is 45 miles? I am not particularly mechanical—I change the oil, check and change a spark plug, battery, fuel filter, but that is about my limit. I would prefer to keep the price below $3000-3300. Any recommendations on specific models?
