I like the Grasshopper's and Hustlers's the best out of the list. Both are great machines that have a good cut quality. Those prices are not too bad. Any of them that you listed are good machines but I just prefer either Hustler or Grasshopper from your list. Good luck with your purchase.

I noticed you found nothing on the Button. That's to bad. I started with a 48", hydro WB. It was a very solid piece of equipment. Since you aren't looking at Gravely's I'd personally look at the Exmark. If all of the mower's you are looking at were equal and you figured in a dealer "factor", meaning, which dealer would be the best. For example, loaners, attitude, parts and service capabilities etc, would that narrow your choices? Thoses are all good mowers, look at the whole picture and make a sound choice. I still say the dealer is as important as the brand of mower. Good luck.
Happy Mowing.

I live in your area and therefore will be using the same dealers that you have talked to. I was planning on adding a couple of mowers next season and I wonder what turned you off to the Toros and YKs?

It was the dealer support every time i went in the the dealer ship it took 30-45 min to get anyone to even help me i feel that if i get a mow and need help with it it will be the same? and the prices with the other dealers are about the same anyway so i looked a round for diff mowers and i looked at how long it took to get help and now im going to call around and ask the dealers how long will it take to get parts like a starter or tires and how much to see what one is faster and hustler will lone you a mow if it takes longer than one hour no other dealer will do that. if you can think of anything that i should know please share

thanks guys P.S. toro and Yk are problem not bad mowers.
