61" Bunton ZTR, bought it used for a steal (at least I think so) and love it so far!

New dixie chopper classic 60" and a bob-cat 52". I will hopefully be replacing the bob-cat in the next year or two with a john deere quik trak 48".

I like the dixie and the dealer is great. The bob-cat is a good machine but the dealer is horrible, I refuse to do business with them anymore. And the deere dealer is awesome and has bent over backwards for to help me make my decision on the quik trak.

As for now, I'm very satisfied with Hustler mowers.

My one Wright Stander has 1484hrs on deck. Motor was changed about 2yrs ago from the 15hp to 17hp when the motor went and still going strong. The deck is shot and welded all over. Too much hopping curbs. And the piece that covers the blades has also been welded. The middle of the deck just colapsed. But I have to say it cut like a champ till the day it retired. Keeping for parts. The other one is a 15hp also 36". You forgot Great Dane. I have a 52".
