Q: Is the Husqvarna Z248F commercial-grade? Can it be used for small business start-ups?
A: This mower is not commercial-grade but can be used for small lawn care business start-ups. If you are looking for a residential zero-turn mower for small business use, the MZ series would be better suited. Check out our Husqvarna MZ61 review here.
