We use a 60" Exmark Lazer Z, and would buy another one, but have been looking at standers, we will probably go with Wright or Toro.

60" Exmark for me, love but can't find a good dealer. Might try a Kubota next just because of the great service I get at the dealer.

I use a deere 717 and exmark lazer z hp. I really like both but would not buy either new. The new deere's have had their share of problems and the exmark dealer is a first class SOB azz!

I will probably replace them with the snapper pro because they are good mowers and the dealer is one of the few good ones in my area.

We are very happy with our Exmark Advantage 60" w/28 hp Kaw. 3rd season with it and it still cuts great. However, we have decided that if we had it to do over we would have saved the 2 to 3 thousand and purchased another 60" TT instead. It is more usefull and safe on the hilly terrain in Northeast TN. The productivity gained by having a rider vs a wb takes a long time to make up the diff. in purchase price. Unless you have very large properties to mow I would say go with a 60" TT.
