Looks good. Why did you choose to buy a 60" w/b instead of a Z?

You will absolutely love that machine. We just picked up a slightly used 06 model this spring and it gets more hours than our ZTR. It is so unbelievable maneuverable its silly. It cuts real good, the only downside is it gets real squirrely on bumpy lawns. It wont cut as fast as the ZTR for some reason, but it makes up for it on the turns. If you can swing the cash get the exmark sulky. Ours came with one and it makes all the others look like homemade specials. We walk it however for our premium lawns. Hill holding ability is insane. I can mow any direction on 35* slopes. Enjoy your new machine.

That's bad to the bone. Nice unit, without a doubt. I can also certainly understand and respect your choice on the wb. There are places and situations that that is literally faster than a Z.

Gotta love the exmarks..... Does that have a stripe kit?

Next mower will be an exmark. I love my scag, but everything I see cut with the exmark looks perfectly done. The scag is a little crude sometimes........ Is it just me?

Nice rig too!

That thing has to be extremely productive. Does it cut faster than the ZTR?

ATouchofGrass, you like the walkers better than either exmark or scag?

I have used tons of different mowers, I fell in love with the 60 ecs exmark. But some people like different things

The Walkers are a great mower! I had to sell mine because i was no longer looking to bag lawns, so i just got Scag Hydros and Exmark hydros but i did not like how light the exmarks were thats why i got rid of them and kept scags. I like heavier mower because they hold the ground better and dont bounce around as much.

My scag drags me around just fine, and the engine is only an 18hp. Even at over 200 lbs, I don't notice much difference in speed or in fuel usage. When are you picking it up?
