snapper pro vs exmark

Hey guys
so im in the market for a new wb and i have been looking at a 52 snapper pro for $5300 or a 52 exmark wb for $6500. anyone have any insight on which mower to purchase. i have both dealers near me. im just wondering if the exmark is far more superior than the snapper pro. please let me know thanks

Both are good mowers. I have used both. The new Snapper/Ferris deck cuts great in wet or dry grass. Exmark deck works great, but only under ideal cutting conditions. Nothing stripes like an Exmark.

ICD on the Snapper stripes well. Make sure you get high lifts. And drop the rubber flap on the back of the deck one notch.

U prefer the high lifts over the gator blades

Will I fatigue easy with the pistol grips?

from personal experience (i have a sw30 48 in wb) the handles on the snapper do not wear you out i like the exmarks, the deck cuts good in all conditions, and the rubber flap will stripe just fine. All that being said exmark still cuts the best in ideal conditions. If it were me buy the snapper, save the money and add a sulky and bagger

Ok great I've been leaning towards the snapper. How does the mower hold up. Is it in for repairs a lot?
