I know more people that have Exmarks but I think that you willl not go wrong with either of them, I think as of now I will probably not deal with Exmark ever again after I get my Z fixed, it has nothing really to do with their mowers just their business practices in general.

John Deere Z-trak is the way to go. Bought mine new last year and love it. Take a look at them before you buy anything else. You'll see why I bought mine.

The Great Dane Super Surfer is awesome too! I have had one for 3 years now and would never go back to a walk behind!

There is a brand new design on the Super Surfer this year that I will see at a dealer show next week.

I tried to PM you this, but you do not have that feature available so here it is.

I realize you're a bit further norht than me, but my dealer sells both eXmark & Bobcat. He could probably be very helpful in running down pros & cons of both. Larry Jr @ Laurel Mower (Blackwood) (856)228-2770. I was in the same boat last year whwn faced w/ decision for a rider and 2 - 48 w/b's. I went eXmark 4 a 52 lazer HP rider and Bobcat for 2 48"w/b belts. He can explain the differences in the machines better than I.

Good luck.

For walkbehinds, we currently run a 36" Scag and a 48" Turf Tracer HP from Exmark. In the past, we've also run belt driven Bobcats. My vote after personally using all three units over the years is Exmark. Exmark is not only our walkbehind of choice, but rider of choice.

Nothing cuts like an Exmark. As far as bagging leaves with a walkbehind in the Fall....Scag's deck is the best. Out performs both Bobcat and Exmark in that regard. For overall use during the season, you can't go wrong with an Exmark hydro walkbehind.

Bobcat Hydro VS Exmark Hydro walk behinds

First choice 52" eXmark twin Hydro WB with ECS, no substitute.
Second choice 52" Stander
Third choice 52" eXmark Lazer Z

Bobcat? I take Stander over Bobcat anytime.

I have a Bobcat gear drive and a Ex-mark hydro....both stripe well and in general they are both real good cutters/however I like Hydro much better than gear drive! :cool:
