Not a bash at all its a good question, its a cub cadet and its owned by my brother. I just bought the exmark 3 days ago, and there is 2-3 lawns that I will not be able to fit the exmark in (due to a gate) for those lawns (there all on the same day) ill take the cub with me its a 33 inch the exmark is a 48. The only reason it is on the trailer was because I had to redesign were I was going to put the mowers and how I was going to secure them! On a normal day though when im by myself the only mowers that will be on the trailer are the two exmarks! As for your question how do they compare? Well alot of guys will bash the cub, however its a good mower. Does it cut as well as the exmark no, is it easier to control no, is it worth the thousand dollar price tag yes. For 2 years now thats all me and my brother used and the only problem we have had is broken drive cable which are easily replaced. If your doing 5-10 lawns the cub will be great. But anything more I would suggest an exmark, scag ex. ex. But still its a good mower for those yards you cant fit through a gate or is two small for a 48, it is deffinatly better than push mowing though!

I agree about the cub. Yall were just starting out, and there's no reason to go overkill for 5-10 yards, but zak I know you are lovin' the eXmark! I know it makes a world of difference.

Whoever said "it's his truck and he'll do what he wants!" -It's much appreciated. The truck/trailer appearance has actually gotten me 2 clients

Apparently, I'm unproffessional until I am pulling with a boring, run of the mill, work truck. Anyway, hope everyone has a great season this year!
Show them how it's done in TN Griffin. Not my mowing set up, but I will get pics of that later.

Woot woot! Is that a duramax out in that beautiful field? That will be my next truck (still not sellin my 95 though) but I want a crew cab duramax 03+ I'm not against that body style at all either though. 4wd or 2wd?

This thread has turned into Chevy lovin' landscaper fanatics, I love it.
