New mower

I know there is a ton of posts on this subject but I also know that things change like the seasons.
I am looking to get another 50' or so mower; give or take an inch or two. I currently have a 60' dixie classic and love it never had hardly any maintenance issues and I have about 1k hours on it. However my dealer is leaning away from them due to the issues with jacobsen. Some of my other lawn care friends swear by Wright standers but wanted to get everyones opinion. The dealer around here sells, Toro, exmark, scag, hustler, Wright, gravely and Big dog. Wanting to get a really good cut for a decent price. Any help would due appreciated.

I mow mainly fescue in Delaware and I have been pleased with my Hustler X-one 60". I currently have 260 hours on the machine since I purchased it new last June.

I have a Gravely PT 148 and love it. If I was you I'd be looking at a PT 252 or 460. As others have said scag is also great and so is Exmark. Where are you located? If in the Tampa/Brandon area to see Tony at Grass Pro Shops in Brandon.

Have a turf tiger that's treated me well, minus the bagger tube that deteriorates ffrom sagging onto the drive wheel. Pitiful engineering on scag part with ttheir bagging system. They have these new "guards" or plastic sleeves they place over the bagger tube in a half fast effort to keep the tube from being cut through.

Deere's 7 Iron Pro deck is the best deck in industry for cut right now I have to say never misses a blade of grass tall, wet, dry doesn't matter, Gravely XF2 is awesome good cut the baffles are issues for some seem dumb to me 3 baffles with multiple bolts to much adjusting, Scag is great to from research I have looked over for a good while only unit I have yet to test.

If you have any questions on the Gravely machines please let us know. Did the dealer mention a possible demo of one? Thank You
