    The chap in the home depot store said that it's basically an add on feature equipment which I can purchase for any any riding lawnmower. Is what he's saying correct?

    If you're talking a homeowner type model I think Cub Cadet is the only one who offers one.
    Cub Cadet i1000

    Commercial you'll have a few more options, some of them better than others.

    Thanks for everyone's help guys.

    I need a residential unit, 48"-52" blade and zero-point turn. In terms of brands I'm considering either John Deere or Cub Cadet. The return on investment i'll be getting is good and price is really not that much of an issue.

    I'll dig deeper into the links and info you have provided first thing tomorrow morning. If anyone has any more suggestions, please don't consider it a big chore to post it up.

    Grasshopper brand probably would be the best, they have been doing the mower/blower thing for a while. It is a commercial unit and will hold up well, you can get them propane run also.

    Walker period. Grasshopper is a close 2nd. If the 07-08 winter turns out to be a killer season. A walker diesel will be getting purchase for mowing my house and my house only. Then get a plow and cab for it for winter time. But only if we get a good season.

    I have seen some on ebay that you can mount onto a Z. It is basically the same setup as what they put on the riding mowers for homeowners.

    I'm a homeowner looking for the best system I can use for mowing/plowing around my home. I have an acre lot with lots of concrete. I bought a 2-stage snow blower that works pretty well, but it takes me 1 to 1.5 hours to clear all my concrete when it snows. That's too much time for my taste.

    I used to have a Walker mower ( http://www.walkermowers.com ) a few years back. Is that the same machine you're talking about? I loved that mower, and if their snow removal options work as well as the mower, then I'm sold.

    Yep. The only complain about the walker, is its electric lift. Which is the only thing I like about the grasshopper as its hydraulic. But otherwise everyone I know who has one, swears by them. I have only got to play with on for a couples of minutes. But have spent tons of hours mowing with them and nothing is better at picking up leaves.

    I have idea. Do you want heavy duty small garden tractor? google on case or ingersoll garden tractors.

    What I heard which is best ZTR is ferris which very good for mow grass.

    For snow duty I would choose Ingersoll 4000 series with snowblower it best snowmachine you have see before.
