In The Market For A New Mower

EITHER A NEW 48" AND 32" WALK BEHIND W/ SULKYS OR 44" RIDER. LOOKING AT EXMARK. MY EQUIPMENT IS TIRED BUT RUNS GOOD BUT SEEMS TO BREAK DOWN AT THE WRONG TIMES. MOSTLY RESIDENTAL, BUT DO HAVE A HUGE APARTMENT COMPLEX. HELP ME OUT.

entered the game

Lesco and Bobcat and Toro, still like the Exmark, but it has me thinking now. Not sure what to pull the trigger on.
Finally got my fertilizer lawn flags/stakes. Any sites the have these in stock regularly, got mine from Lesco, where on b/o for 1.5 months.

In my opinion there is no reason too buy a 44 inch rider.A 52 inch is a much better choice.
If you do purchase a rider the suspension seat is worth every penny.
Exmarks are great Mowers as are the others mention.
I have a new Snapper 52 inch ZTR and a 36 inch Bobcat walk behind and I only use my Walk behind on steeper damp hills.
One other problem with a small deck rider is the deck does not stick out as far and makes for a harder time mowing around trees.
A 52 inch too me seemed too be the best all arpound mower.
I cut a Church that has a big big Field.The 52 makes it doable.I have a guy that helps cut it with a 44 inch walkbehind and it takes him twice as long too do the field as it does me on my ZTR.Thats 2 hours into a little over 4 hours.
