Hello. This is my first post. I was wanting to know if anyone has any experience with several different brands of mowers. I mow about 10 different accounts that range in size from .5 acres to 2.5 acres. I currently use a Simplicity Broadmoor with a 20hp/44 inch cut. I spend about 7-8 hours a week. I'm looking at several zero turns and wanted your opinions before I buy. I have quotes on a Simplicity Citation 21 hp Briggs/ 48 inch cut for $5600 (demo w/20 hours). New Land Pride Z series 20 hp Kawasaki/ 48 inch cut for $4750. New Exmark Quest 22hp Briggs/ 48 inch cut for $3999. I'm looking to buys something that is going to last at least 10 years. I don't mind paying for quality if it is a good value. If anyone has any suggestions on which way I should go, I would appreciate it!!
