i try not to buy equipment with over 500 hours on it. i know a lot of guys that dont worry about that but i start thinking about repair costs adding up. i would much rather spend a few more dollars up front and have a lesser used machine. that being said you have to keep a watchful eye on the hour meter look for any signs it was tampered with. i have heard several stories of guys buying machines with low hours and come to find out the hour meter was disconnected. so i always check that area extremely well. without seeing the machine i have a tough time judging but to me the 48" exmark with under 500 hours for only 2 grand more seems like the better choice. your getting a machine with almost 950 less hours on it and a bigger engine. just my opinion good luck
