I personally like exmark but don't have any experience with the others. They have great customer service and awsome parts program! Welcome to lawnsite!

More people on this site would tell you to go your dealers and demo the units then make your decison based on what is popular in your area, as well as the things you like about the different units and best dealer and support. Take your time and make your decision based on what you want and need.

Exmark! Good product, even better support. Best service in the biz. We won't buy anything else and we've tried other makes...

silverock , bought a xmark lazerz 52 inch cut in may great machine . I have several large contract cut 1 in 24 min compared to 50-60 on my walker 42/20 hp , dont't get me wrong the walker is the best mower i've seen for small areas that need to be vac but the x cuting at 9-10 mph makes it worth the cost.
