Need advice on which ZTR

Need some advice on buying a new ZTR. I am looking to buy a new 48" or 52" ZTR. I want to stay with a brand that can be serviced locally. We only have these choices: Ex-Mark, Scag, Hustler, Ferris, and Snapper. Quality of cut, cutting speed, and warranty are major factors. Of the 5 above, which would you buy ?

eXmark has a really good parts program. I don't know about the others though. Good Luck

If speed is that important you might want to look at Ferris since they seem to advertise they have a better ride. Don't know about nothing except Scag and they are very sturdy. I guess they will cut with the best of them but we don't do any golf courses.
