I have a few pics on my facebook page, they are all mowed with the 30...

Did you have to double cut to make the lawns look that great or is that just bagging it. That is an excellent look. I know with the Narrow deck on my Quick, even when I'm bagging sometimes I have to double cut heavily fertilized lawns. It gets old.

Ours has still been working nice. My trimmer guy that usually uses the 21 if needed always goes for the 30 now.

The Exmark is my primary lawn mower and I love it. The only thing I would change is the front height adjustment.

Another transmission bites the dust.

I went with the Exmark 30". I love it so far. Mulches really well. Bags clean and nice. Lots of power. Makes the lawns look really nice. Best of all, it is faster than the old 36" ride on I was using. The difference is the turning radius of course and that I do not have to run a trim mower around first. I was hoping for some improvement over a 21" walk behind but I never dreamed it would be faster than a 36" ride on. Hope I don't have the tranny problem but if I do back it goes for repairs. This is the perfect mower for a guy like me who does a lot of medium sized and a few larger residential lawns with fences and gates everywhere. I couldn't be happier so far.

I keep reading about how fast the Exmark is and how slow some of the ride-on on WB's are....?

I'm still waiting on a top speed difference between the TimeMaster and the TurfMaster.... ?

They got mine fixed. Said there was a batch that was assembled improperly from the factory.

Exmark isn't just replacing the failed gear they are replacing the complete transmission. Your dealer is to send the old tranny back to Exmark.

You can do a rough test, on a grass surface hold the machine back and pull the drive handel. If just one wheel spins thats not good. Mine won't even climb up the ramp on my trailer.

Holland, If you have an Exmark dealer in your area, go there and ask them to register that unit with Exmark. If not, you can do it your self by sending Exmark a email or calling them.

Got mine back after one day but the new trans fails your rough test?
