I need help choosing a mower

I started my lawn business last year. I started out with a 48" bobcat walk behind. I then moved to a 54" John Deere walk behind when the bobcats transmission went out. I now use a 48" scag tigger cub as well as the Deere. I have over 30 accounts, businesses and residential. I am looking into a new mower and there is a cub cadet deeler, toro, and husquvarna dealer close to me. Which of these commercial mowers is most favored by you? i think the husquvarna looks beast but I see more people using the toros. Any help would be appreciated. The mowers I am looking at are the toro commercial 2000-5000 or husky pz5430, or a cubcadet tank.

Husqvarna by far. Toro commercial is good don't get the cheap ones or cub cadets they sell at Lowes though. There's a guy here "Realslowwww" that loves cub cadets tanks though...

i wish i could buy another scag but the dealer is about 40 miles away. its all about dealer support for me. so you think out of the toro comercial and cub cadet commercials the husky would be the best? im lookin at spending around $10,000 on a new one.

I've read good things about the new commercial Huaqvarnas, lots of people like them, I think they are just too new and still haven't caught on good.

All of the models you are considering probably have similar engine, hydros, tires, etc.


So the major component left is the deck and dealer service. Toro has more experience out there than the other two there.

i havent looked much at the cub cadet but i know everyone arpund hear uses toros. i have seen a few using huskys. i mainly want a good hp so it doeseng bog down in thicker wey grass. the husky has a 30hp 54in i thought would be good to look at. the toros seem to have mowers with smaller engines hp. atleast with the commercial 2000-3000
