I am just curious what brand of mower is most commonly used for professional stadium grounds crews. I have done some searching on this site and on google with little luck. It is nothing more than curiousity. I just wondered if there was a "standard" brand across the board or if it was similar to on hear where it is a wide variety.

Our goal is to mow everyday. Realistically we average about 5-6 days a week. We use 1 5500, 1 3100, 2 3250, and a walk behind greens mower.

We use Toro & John Deere at our complexes. I would venture to say that toro is used most often.

We are not a Pro Venue but do take care of many sports fields and we use Toro Sidewinder 3500D. I don't mind it. It takes some time to cut perfect lines.
