I've always ran exmark but bought the toro g3 52" 24hp kawasaki last year and love it. Plus, got a dealer that is less than 10 minutes from my shop and they are great. The g3 works great for the type of properties I cut because 90% of them are .5 acres and your standard subdivision lot. Plus the 52" is wide enough to cut alot of grass at one pass without scalping. Most of the grass I cut is bermuda and especially during the growing season it gets thick but the g3 powers thru it leaving a very smooth cut. So far I don't have any complaints

I love my g3. It is a 52 also but it is a 25hp kohler. I wish I would have gotten a 61inch though, would be better for a big graveyard I mow. G3's are the best zrt I have ever used on hillsides thats for sure. I am looking into selling it for a scag though.

They are built pretty awesome. I talked too a guy who has a turf tiger. He told me my toro was trash.. haha I was like I don't think so..

How are those tiger cats? compared to a g3? the scag dealer said he sells alot of those and cheetas. But do eather of those hold a hill like a g3
