Snapper Pro, Bobcat or maybe even a Bad Boy (Deck is unproven to me yet). I hope no one will say a used Exmark because the eye in the sky will closed down another thread....
I think Snapper Pro owns this price point, the ICD deck IMO is the best all around deck out there right now. Not starting a brand war here (we all know the sponsors of this site won't allow the truth to be told) but i believe it cuts just as good if not better than Scag, Deere, Husky.
I think you can get a new Snapper Pro fro around 7500 which i think is a steal compared to whats out there.
Good luck, let us know what u get.
Believe nothing that you hear, half of what you see, know that most people are idiots!
