I am in the market for a new mower. I prefer the 72" but if you guys prefer the 60" I am open to hear why. I currently run Exmarks, Toro, Wright & Walker. My current 72" is a Exmark but I wanted to know what brand you guys suggest. A friend of mine is a Ferris distributor and is offering me a killer deal on a new one. But I don't want to lose quality or reliability.

Demo demo demo. If you like exmarks then I would stick with them, but I have been known to like a mower based on the price tag

I like the cut of the Exmark just disappointed with its reliability. In 2000 hours I have replaced 3 Hydro pumps, 1 wheel motor, two clutches, and two spindles. I realize some of this is normal but 3 hydro pumps in 2000 hours seemed excessive.

I know that the biggest baddest thing will no't work for ever one but you use a 72'' now so I would no't go small if I was you.Has for me I use a 61'' cut that was bigger than 2 dealers said I need for commercial grass cutting they both said to get a 48'' cut my other mower is 54'' so I was no't going to go smaller .As for the brand I do like Ferris with a Vangard maybe your friend will sell one at a killer deal.

Thats not bad for 2000 hours. Don't buy a Hustler or you will really have something to talk about.
A friend of mine loves his Ferris, 3 of them.

3 pumps in that many hours does seem excessive.

Have you considered John Deere? Demo one. Do you want a gas or diesel?
