A little help with a big investment

hey guys i'm getting ready to buy 2 new mowers for my business i've always ran grasshoppers and when i went to trade this year the grasshoppers were $1500 a piece higher than any other brand i think i've narrowed it between hustler super z and the dixie chopper classic i put about 500 hours a year on each one of them and am planning on trading again in 2 years what do you guys think ... Thanks for the input

I ran grasshoppers for many years and now run hustler super z's, no problems and like them.

I will be getting a dixie classic this year, so long my year goes well. Now, both hustler and dixie are good mowers, but dixie has a pretty good warranty on almost everything-you should really look at it. But even my dixie dealer likes the hustlers, he said the only thing that he didn't like about them was the cut quality. I think you decision should be based off of dealer support, it is amazing how far that gets you.
