I’ve had my BX1850 since 2009 (I think) when bought it new. Has served me well the entire time. When I bought it, I had a acre of grass to mow and a 50’ driveway to plow when it snowed. It was absolutely the piece of equipment to have and remember how giddy I was when it was delivered. Bought a bigger house and more property in 2015 and after two years (2017) of now mowing 3 - 4 acres, the 54” deck wasn’t wasn’t enough and with a 1/4 mile long driveway to plow, started shopping for an upgrade. I opted to keep my BX and bought a ZD1211. It’s a monster mower and cut my mowing time by more than half. This has been the case ever since. I do my own fluid changes so it’s a good part of a day for each machine. as I’m getting older, I’m thinking of consolidating by trading both the BX and ZD in on a new B2601 with FEL and rear 60” grooming mower. Removing a belly mower is not a job I want to do on a regular basis to do loader work or pulling logs. Anyway, sometimes it helps to dump your thoughts to help in the decision making process so what is the general consensus?
