I just bought a Huslter W/B 48". It handles great and does a great job. I checked out Exmark as well, but likes the control of the Huslter more.

Time to sell my ZTR and older W/B

not a good poll choice, you need to start again and put the 2 best ones on there, Hustler, and Toro, then the other harder to use ones (altho the others have great cuts and are built very well) should follow.

I wish mine would...unfortunately the stupid thing refuses to die. I practically abuse it, and yet it cranks on the first pull every time after 6 years. That briggs 4.0 is damned near bullet-proof.

How do you account a exmark is a better machine than scag.

Floating deck, bigger tires better cut, ECS is better than Scag pistol grip. I've owned many Scags and Exmarks.

That's the only walkbehinds we've ever used. We have a Snapper 48" Belt and a 48" Hydro, along with a Snapper 52" ZTR and, no major problems out of any of them.
