Need help buying a mower!

This is my first year in the business (I have 12 accounts) and since April I have been using a 1990 20" troybilt mulcher and a 2006 22" toro mulcher/bagger. To answer your question yes it was horrible haha. I am looking into buying a 48" walk behind. I found a 48" Exmark for $850 and a 48" Bobcat (older version) for $650. I don't know much about commercial mowers so I was just wondering what to look for when I go look at them.
I know both of them are belt driven and both of them have just been serviced and had the blades sharpened. The Bobcat was owned by another landscaping company for the past year and they are selling it because they got 2 new mowers. From what my friends tell me Kawasaki is the best engine but I don't know what engine either of these mowers has.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks guys!
