question about what type of MOWERS to buy

looking to buy 2 new mowers, one sit down, 48-52 inches with a big bagger .. and one 36 inch stand on to fit into some of the backyards and small spots and could also be used to help when there is 5-6 properties on the same street.. i cut grass in NJ, i have about 90 accounts that i will do per week, what does everyone think about the brand i should get, im thinking exmark ? but really would love everyones opinion, thank you.

I like both the Wright and Exmark standers. As for the sit down I don't know if you were considering a Navigator but I think the Walkers are a better machine. As far as Z's I run Deere, but I have tried Exmark and they seem to be a decent machine.
