I havent purchased a mower in a long time. At that time scag was top dog. Bunton and exmark were second place. What is it now. If i make a purchase, i want to be happy with it for a long time.

to me it is exmark, your opinion is the only one that matters to you. try and see what works best for you

I am really not sure how much difference there really is. I have all eXmark equipment, but I'm sure that a Scag would mow quite nicely, too. Pardon the old saw, but buy from a dealer who's going to stand behind the product...just don't get Harry Homeowner cr*p.

Demo an exmark,scag,hustler,ferris,bunton,ransome,wright,dane,toro,walker,jd
and find one you like. :dizzy: just kidding I have demoed them all working for a large maint comp in my area.Now that i'm on my own scag and exmark are the only machine I'll use. I can't say enough good things about the exmark especially the ecs. Pistol grip mowers are killer on your hands and wrists.I know my hands go numb from the years of abuse from pistol grips I'm sure yours do too.

Give your local exmark dealer a call and tell them to meet you on your hardest growing property with a 19 kaw 48 TTHP. I guarantee you buy it.

Pistol grips are the subject of a lot of complaints here on Lawnsite. That was one of the reasons I went with the eXmark TTHP. The ECS is not exactly fingertip control, but it seems a lot easier on the mitts than pistol grips.
