Exmark Commercial 30" Users

Just wondering guys that are currently running Exmark commercial 30's in their rigs on a daily basis, would like to get some feedback on how they are holding up and are they worth the purchase or not. I bag all of my lawns so I need to know how they bag in particular. Thanks to all that reply.

Why are there 300 different threads on this same subject right now? I mean seriously, the best thread was the one started last yet thats like 80 pages long called "pulled the trigger new exmark for me". It's very comprehensive. Look it up.

Just like the BOP mower a few years ago. I am very surprised they can sell a mower that weighs more than a honda.

Good point!

Shows how much interest there is in this market segment. Am guessing there will be several new brands of 30" mowers in the next year.

Lets not get over excited yet wait and see what happens in the third year. That is a lot of weight to be pulling around especially when you bag. It seems like working around stuff would be tough.

My first one was and is junk. I swear its a lemon. I bought a second and knock on wood, I have 8 hours on it, in the last 2 days without any problems. I am in contact with exmark trying to get something done about the other. It has literally been at the shop at least once a week.

I did read the WHOLE thread FYI, but I wanted to know how they are currently holding up on a daily basis since the transaxle issue has been resolved. There are so many mixed reviews on this machine that you don't know which route to go!

We currently have one in our fleet and use it a few times per week. The unit seems solid with lots of power. The two issues I have are; it seems to be just a right rear drive and the rear wheels are mostly smooth. The drive tends to want to drive the unit to the left and the rear wheels do a fair amount of spinning.
Maybe a slightly aggressive set of wheels would do the trick. Honestly it is a solid machine. We are thinking of ditching the 36" WB and use two of the 30" at the same time.
