I haven never been around a new one. The ones I see are ragged out POS. The old cone drives can be expensive to fix. The newer ones use a different drive. Other thing is price. They were over priced new and resale on used is way too high

If you get one off the older cone drives make sure it does not have a one piece body. The newer ones have a two piece body so you can adjust the drive without taking the body off for every adjustment. Part of the body opens so you can  work on it. I think the hydro drives are much better.

Never been a fan of any of the zero turn mowers. I'm no help.
