I am looking for zero turn mower with a 48"-52" deck and a kawi engine for my yard. I am in the market for a low hour (a few hundred) commercial machine that is only a few years old. I have good dealer support for Scag, Walker, Hustler, Exmark, Bobcat, and Grasshopper in my area. Hopefully I can score a gently used commercial mower rather than paying full boat for a high end "estate" unit. I am hoping to spend around $5,000, but can go a little higher for the right deal.

Anyone have one they want to sell? I am in central Pennsylvania.

Thanks - this forum and site have been a great resource!

Garmel and meets1 - thanks for the reply. I hadn't really considered TORO because i assumed they were not as rugged as the brands that sell more commercial mowers. Of course, I am just learning as I go here so if anyone has any input I would love to hear about it. HOw does the TORO Commercial compare to the other brands i mentioned?

Toro is just as good (if not better) than the other brands you mentioned. I ran Toro ZTRs for a couple years and they were fantastic, only reason I sold them was because the local dealer sucked.

They are very reliable, engineered well, and are rugged.

I can honestly say that Toro ZTRs with the Turbo Force deck are one of the best mowers available.

Hey there - I run all toro and exmark. Can't tell much of a difference but I have had them all and I just really like those two brands.

We run JD and Toro and the Toro Zero holds it's own with the JD. We were pleasantly surprised, but I must admit that JD is our main equipment and we are not planning on changing. By the way we run 7's and 9 series JD, nt 8's.
8's was when we tried Toro!

After looking into it a little more, and talking to my brother who has one, I am leaning towards Exmark. They seem to have the best dealers around here.

I get my new Exmark this week. A Toro and Exmark are owned by the same company. The only difference is the deck, but I think Exmark are the best.

I have owned both, still have exmarks, both are great. In my eyes they are equally good, but I just didn't have any toro dealer support around here so I was forced to sell the toros and go exmark.

Dealer support is the biggest thing

exmark or toro, you will not be disappointed.

Hey wrntenterprise, How much are you looking to get for the exmark.

Hey Wayne,

Thanks for sending the pics - looks like a nice mower. After walking our new property some more the other day and measuring the shed that the mower will be stored in I think the 56" deck is a little too big. I know it sounds picky, but i want to be able to fit the mower into all the nooks so I don't have to do any mowing with my Honda walker. And it needs to fit through the shed door opening. I don't want to have to buy a mower and a new shed to go with it.:)

I am still looking for that low hours exmark if someone has one with a 48" or 52" deck. Preferably 2008 or newer.

Thanks!
