I have found that it really depends on what part of the US you are working in as to what brands are the most common. I personally have found the Hustler SuperZ to be my alltime favorite. I have owned and used Dixie Chopper, Grasshopper, Cub Cadet, Toro, Wright Stander, John Deere, and others as well. I will always try to stay with the Hustler SuperZ.

In over twenty years in business, I have owned Exmarks since 1990 and have never seen a better cut overall. I have a 72", 60" Lazers and a 60" and 52" turf tracers.

This year I bought an Everide Warrior 25Kaw 60" with bagger and it's great for wet grass but the deck wheels are to far away from the ground. Scalps to easy unless it's pretty flat. And it also doesn't chop the clippings up, it just throws them out and they could be as much as 5" long coming out of the deck. It disperses them well but doesn't cut them up much.

On the Toro? IMHO they made a great improvement in there machines when they bought there competition (Exmark) because they got there best ideas from what the Exmark already had. There deck is a bit different but other than that there the same basic machine. Before they bought ExMark there mid size comercials were IMHO again JUNK But, they are greatly improved now.

How do you compare the Lesco Z2 to the Lazer Z.
