You got that right.
The finished product needs to look finished Not like a hay field !

All I got is Deere. Got two new mowers planned for next year and am going to look at Dixie Chopper and Hustler. Scag would be ok but they're too damn expensive!

JD here -- it's as good as any. Cuts tall/wet grass and leaves the property looking sweat.

I'm a Toro guy myself, but I own two exmarks as well. I like them both.

I own a 2008 61" Ferris IS2000 and a 2007 54" husqvarna and also a older 52" Toro and nothing I mean nothing compares to the Ferris the independent suspension makes one hell of a difference. I will never buy anything but Ferris again.
