Wright ZTO vs Exmark Pioneer S

My son wants to start off with a lawn care biz while in High School and then thru College etc. Looking at 2 machines at this point. Exmark Pioneer S Series 60 inch cutting width has the Kohler CV740 Engine. Next is a Wright ZTO also a cutting width of 60 inches and has a Kawasaki FX/BS Cyclonic Engine. Both have the ZT3400 Trans. While I like the Kawasaki engine more than the Kohler, Exmark is a good machine, but I don't know much on the Wrights. Price is close, the Wright being a few hundred more

Any opinions / Advice that you have ?

Im not familiar with the Exmark. Is it a full commercial machine with commercial warranty?

The Wright is a very nice machine. Probably one of the nicest with the 3400 transmissions. It has large tires, fuel tanks and seat. Alot of machines with the 3400's are made to be cheaper/smaller so this is kinda different. The whole machine is just beefier looking than other machines running the 3400 tranmissions.

It's because wright doesn't do a good job at all in marketing the zto. Their entire focus in marketing is directed towards their stand on mowers. I could go on and on regarding this matter,but I won't.
