Ex mark 30". Nearly every mow rig in town here has one.

Like GMLC said, the 3100z is easily the biggest game changer in the recent history of mower performance.

Really? For some reason Ferris is just not that popular around here, but does look like an awesome machine. I stopped in the dealer here and checked them out several times but never demoed one..

Well, the suspension flat out performs everything on the market as far as making the ride on a lawn mower better. Almost enjoyable actually, considering you get beat up less during the day.

The Stander from Wright did do a lot of things for mowing on hills that nobody else could at the time.

I'm not a big fan of the JD MOD (I own one), but it should have made the list simply due to the fact that it is the first deck of its kind, the only deck like it on the market, and it does do a lot of things other decks can't do nearly as easily.

What about Grasshopper mowers, don't forget they were making commercial mowers for nearly 20 years before these other companies were even started. They were the first commercially viable zero turn, first to develop the steering levers we use today, first mowers with Diesel engines, and probably the only company with multiple mowers still running and mowing with over 14,000 hours on the clock. Maybe they are not the most popular or most bought mower on the market but they should have had a little respect and been put on this list.

This list obviously wasn't thought out very well.

Thanks very much for posting this. It is entertaining to read, however, what is the source of the data? Was this a poll of people worldwide, or a poll of your own customers. It would seem that a poll right here on this forum, could collect a very broad list of data and opinions.

Thanks again for opening the subject.
