Having good dealer support is critical to your business. Ask how long you will be without equipment when being repaired, do commercial customers take priority over residential? Loaners? Price breaks? How long have they been dealers for the brand your looking at. Do they automatically submit your serial numbers to the manufactures(mine does and I think that is great)

What I buy has a lot to do with what is sold at my favorite dealer.


Oh Just looking at the numbers you posted I would choose the Ferris, best power to blade size. But more importantly, DEMO all three, its a really big purchase. The winner will be your income source, and cost you some big money up-front, so choose wisely.

The Toro sounds like the best deal to me!

I would demo all of them and see which one feels the best with handling,cutting and performance because all mowers feel different to everyone so id get the one that feels right for you.

listen to grn mtn, he has it right, forget brand, find a dealer who will take care of you when things break, even if his price is $1000 more, build the relationship. all mowers are going to work about the same, each has one or two different little things that sets them apart. youve had about one person say each one is the best, obviously they are all good
