I didnt know the Turf Tracer came in 48. I have a TTHP in 48 and they have the Trivantage deck. The Turf Tracer in 60 inch would be an ultracut deck and that has to be better than the Trivantage. If you want a 60 inch WB, I dont think you can do better than the Exmark TT. They cost 7000 or more new though.

I owned two at one time, their great mowers, the ultra cut deck is one of the best ever IMO. If you have many properties with hills and you want to get them done quick, it's a great choice, they hold a hill great. Never had any problems at all with them, one had 1450 hrs and the other had 650 hrs and no problems at all. The only thing that was tough to get used to was tilting up the 60" deck for curbs, ect. their pretty heavy. Their pretty pricy too, I payed 6300.00 in 06'. Unless you really need a walkbehind that big, I would just go with a ZTR.

well i made a mistake its a tthp my 48. i found a used one for 2800$ and its 3 years old. the only reason im considering this is because its cheaper thatn a ztr and takes up less trailer space

I have my 48 TTHP to supplement my 66 Lazer on smaller properties and for hills and mowable ditches. I have a Proslide on it which is better than a wheeled sulky IMHO. I would nt the TTHP as my main mower for all properties, or any WB for that matter. If the mower is in good shape its prolly a good buy and will get the job done but they really work you over compared to a rider.
