I'm new to the fourm and would like your help. I want to buy a ZTR mower and would like to know what You would buy. I have one acrea of thick common bermudagrass. I have three models in mind that I relly like. The first one is the Hustler fastrak 44" deck 18 hp honda 2 cylinder at $4200(Really like the price). The next model is the Exmart CT 44" deck 17 hp Kholer 1 cylinder at $4900. The last model is the Toro Z100 44" deck 17 hp Kholer 1 cylinder at $5300( this lools like a ture pro mower but I don't know about the 1 cylinder motor) Which would work best for Bermuda or would you recomend something else. Iwould like to get away from bagging. Thanks in advance for your help. :help:

Exmark with a mulching kit.

Elephantnest, Thanks for the reply. Why the exmark, do you own one, is the cut better?

I own the 36" exmark TTHP, trivantage deck, mulching kit. Mulches unbelievably well. With gator blades, the blow out is a little much, but with the excalibur blades, wow, stuff just disappears. Im thinking of trying doubles when the leaves get really thick.

I say Exmark because Ive used them for 15+ years, been great money makers, hardly ever down, very reliable.

I am a Toro man and I say the Toro myself. But of course it all depends on personal preference.
