Exmark is the best cutting mower I have ever ran. The Ultra cut deck is unstoppable. And its not about the name it's about the carpet smooth cut.

i went to an exmark dealer and was looking at walk behinds, correct me if iam wrong but the parts and design of the toro are the same as the exmark and the price is within 100 bucks..... in this area pretty much everyone uses toro or exmark

I personally am going to stick with toro because i have a great relationship with a dealership about 30 minutes away. If my mower goes down I get a loaner etc. Great people.

Dealer support is just as or more important than the brand you choose. Go by dealer then select the equipment they sell. I am sort of into exmark because of the dealer I got it from.

People buy john deere for the name. They buy scags or exmarks to cut grass habitually, frequently and continuously.

Can't beat the cut of my Deere nor the service at my dealership! With Green Fleet, if it isn't fixed in an hour or less there will be a mower in your trailer and you will be back on the job....... end of story!

John Deere gets it for me! Highland Turf and Tractor (Dade City,FL) for service!
