you can get a 60 Lesco for like 5999, but Ive never used one. Gravelys are nice and lower than exmark and hustler. I have had/still have a 34z, 144z, and a 152z

Now I have Hustler and they are nice mowers, but not the cheapest

Probably the best bang for the buck in this industry right now is the Bad Boy mowers.

If you had asked which was the best mower, I would not have commented at all because there are just too many brands and all are debatably good. Since you said "for the money," however, I believe it is Bad Boy. You can get a 60" air cooled for about $5,500 and it is a well built unit.

I have just gone through several weeks of shopping, demoing and studying and that was my conclusion. I will again make it clear, I am not saying the Bad Boy is the best, I just personally believe it is the most mower for the money.

All that said, even though you are talking about the most for the money, it still is debatable, because what do you want the most OF? Do you want the best cut, the longest lasting, the best handling?

My $0.02,
Doc

John Deere - Hands down - Pay more but you get way more not only in quality, but service and trade-in.

Exmark's have debatedly the best cut of any commercial ZTR out there. I don't know what you would happen to be talking about. I guess the off brand Xmark.
