Re: Anyone know anything about White Outdoor mowers??? #1 Mar 13, 2010 3:11 pm
I am a conservative person, I don't go for the name brand glamour and impressing other people. I bought both a White Ourtdoor ZT54 zero turn for $2900 and a White Outdoor 54" lawn tractor for $1800 at tractor supply several years ago. Both are awesome mowers that really take a beating on my 4 acres all year long. Neither have had any maintenance besides oil change and blade sharpening and I mow for hours every week in deep healthy grass and on hot sunny days. I was sorry to hear they sold the company. The new company sells the same mower only painted orange and black which is ok by me. Here's the deal... MTD parts are used for almost every so called low end mower, so they are basically all the same except for the name and price = shop for price. If you use your equipment with care, store it in a shed, and refresh your oil regularly, most MTD type briggs or kohlers will run forever and I mean forever. On the othe hand, if you have money to burn, go and buy the cadillac... which does the same thing only cost you a whole lot more, double or triple what is necessary and repairs will cost as much as a new MTD mower. I also own two Briggs mowers that are 14 years old that I use for the dirty dirty work and are still running strong. I don't think they will ever stop running.
